The Goat, Vancouver Canada 2009

So the last post I did was about No Age playing a show in Vancouver. This new post is about the opening band, The Goat, which I probably should have shown first...
This was the first and last time I've seen The Goat, not because I didn't like them, I did. They were a lot of fun. I just haven't heard of any other shows that they played. Plus I really don't get out to much.

All the plaids having a good time.

No Age, Vancouver Canada 2009

I can't believe it's been 3 years since I shot these! Time is on hyper-speed...
If you ever get a chance to see No Age in person, you CANT pass it up! They have to be one of my favorite live bands ever!!
Just make sure to bring ear plugs if you value your hearing. I know it sounds like an old person move but hey why not learn from others, your elders, mistakes.

Watch the girl in the left hand corner of the photo.
She's making her way.
Getting closer.
Leg up on stage. Boob still in top.
Did she get squashed? or did she make it all the way...

Berlin, 2011 Embarrassing memories.

So I know there's not to much look at in this photo. But it's not really about the photo its about what took place just seconds after I shot these two girls. We, Ed, Ashley, Grant and myself were approached by undercover train ticket checker cops. You see in Berlin you can if you want to take the chance to hop on trains without buying a ticket. I of course do not like taking such chances considering if you do get caught not only are you publicly embarrassed you also have to pay a ridiculous fine. But for some reason, and it's only in Berlin, Ed likes this gamble. I unfortunately never carry any money on me so if he doesn't spring for the ticket I have to walk on with fingers crossed. Well our luck ran out on this ride, we were approached by two unassuming ticket cops and asked, (in a full car!) to show our tickets, I of course threw Ed under the bus immediately by pointing to him to the cops and said, "ask him". Everyone tried to play dumb, (another embarrassing move) and then the cops asked us for our passports which none of us had on our persons so then they started talking about taking us in, What?! Instead though, at the next train stop they just had us get off and pay the fine, which I think might of been around 75 US dollars. Each. I think gambling sucks.
One of the more beautiful accomplices Ashely B.
Exactly how I felt.
Thank goodness we were not on this train. And I'm sorry for the people who were.
Even though I was super embarrassed and had a lot of "I told you so's!", it couldn't take away how much I love this city, love the partner I was traveling around with. Next time though, I'll carry a small coin purse.

Peggy Honeywell 2005

In 2005 I was lucky enough to catch my first performance of Peggy Honeywell in Culver City.
She played at a gallery that the name of has slipped my mind.
If you haven't already heard her beautiful voice you must check her out!
And then before my very eyes I saw her transform into...
The beautiful artist, Clare Rojas!
