I love shooting bands. Makes my day almost everytime The rock’n’roll and and all the goings on around the rock, dancing /drinking and random tomfoolery. So last Thursday The Met Provided. In the olden days you could walk into The Met Cafe … and that was pretty much the whole place . Man the new one is big . and clean bathrooms with no underage drinkers possibly passed out under the urinal to step over! Blows my mind!
Openers Cactus Attack, Then Lenny Lashley, Followed by Drag the River.
A Damn Good Time was Had by All for what I could see!
Oh yeah ….. and There were Fanny Packs!
I picked up a new/used lense last week and after testing out at the Rocktucket, I needed to use it in a different setting. Surfs up! Not very high but it worked . I shot down to Narragansett Wednesday to see if anyone was playing in the ocean. Not the best move arriving at lowtide, but at least the waves picked up a bit as well as the number of surfers.
With a storm passing to the east I am hoping for some good waves Friday ? any surfers out there ? is it looking good for fri?and when?
Ten years ago I was driving an old beat up dark blue AstroVan, delivering daycare lunches , and listening to Stern describe what was happening as he viewed it from one of the radio shows offices. It was all through words that I received my news of the attacks , until I reached a daycare in Lincoln where the director had a TV in her office which finally showed me the horrible scenes of the day. My memory of events is poor at best, as I find out every time I reminisce with friends, but this is one memory that is etched deep.
