January 30th at the Church of Crystal Light

Friday night, Quiet Hooves, Video Hippos, and Bird Names played at the Church of Crystal Light. I was really glad I could make it.

Quiet Hooves were good, and I enjoyed the trumpet.

I had never seen Bird Names before. You know how sometimes you just see something happen and say to yourself, wow, that's beautiful? That's what I was saying to myself when they played. Perfect spot meant I got some photos I like a lot.

Video Hippos were great as always. If you haven't seen them, you need to.

Thanks to everyone who played, and thanks to the Church of Crystal Light for hosting an amazing show.

Robert Smith of Tokyo

I just got Photoshop Elements installed, so here's a photo of Robert Smith of the band Tokyo playing at The Triple.

He seemed pretty cool, and he danced like crazy to the Color Kittens.

Billy Bragg in October

Check it out! I forgot I had these. Totally untouched, straight out of the Canon A630.

Too bad I didn't get a photo of when Billy literally teabagged the audience with his packet of Lemon Echinacea Throat Coat.

More stuff! I've been slacking.

Here are more photos! First off, the Pretend Pretenders.

That monkey sure can play.

Here's some more of Cars Can Be Blue.

Puddin Pops:

And now, a change of pace. Here are some party photos from Nathan and Megan's wedding reception. I wish I had some good ones of the amazing green tea cupcakes. I'm getting hungry just thinking about them.

Kyle and Lee:

New photos!

Here are just a couple I've done at shows recently. I'll try to get more up soon!

Andrew of The Pretend Pretenders:

Two nights ago my band, The Colo(u)r Kittens, played with Cars Can Be Blue.

They were really really good. They tour in a tiny car. It is, in fact, blue.

Hot Lava

Here's a bunch of photos of Hot Lava. Hot Lava, I lava you.

The first set is from Rumors Boutique.

This set is from Toad's Place, where Hot Lava played with Tokyo and Oppenheimer.

If you live in Richmond, either you have seen and heard Hot Lava, or you need to see them. Now.

A nice place to visit.

Here are a few from where Alison and I used to live. I don't miss it, but I do sort of miss the restaurants.

Our laundromat. Many of the machines didn't work. The dryers were full of baked-on gum, and sometimes the little black buttons didn't work, causing them not to start. Once I walked in to find one of the washer drains overflowing soapy water all over the floor. It was close to where we lived, but not as close as the machines in the basement are in our new house.

My bike parked in the little patch of lawn outside. One of Alison's wheels was stolen from out here, probably because some inexperienced thief thought it looked expensive. To the thief, I hope the hit felt really good.

No parking! Parking was pretty bad around there. Usually we could park somewhere on our block, but Alison had a few late nights coming home from work, searching for a spot, parking, and then walking a few blocks home.

Living in a house makes me so happy sometimes.
