dc and virginia, 10/24-10/25

so i haven't written here in awhile. i meant to update sooner, but i've been busy with album stuff, projects, and traveling. over a couple installments, i want to post some pictures of my adventures. here are some snaps i took from the shows i played in washington dc and manassas a few weeks ago.



since the bus i took to dc dropped me off a few blocks away from the white house, and i had some time to kill before the show, i decided to mosey on over and be a tourist. it's just too bad obama wasn't inaugurated yet so i could actually be excited about seeing it.

we couldn't get many good shots inside the venue. i've been trying to learn how decrease blur when i take pictures in certain lights (i hate using the flash.) but i'm still a n00b.

okay so the kid that played before me, ricky, had his mics set up near the floor like that for his set. i figured "why not? i'll just perform like that too since it's already there." i could not even move my legs afterward. they were asleep for a good five to ten minutes after my set! people kept coming up to me and giving me money for my cd, all while i was awkwardly sprawled on the floor.

i tried to sit like this too, but couldn't sing in that position due to breathing constrictions.

afterparty!

this photo is epic. we kept passing this headband around to see who could look the most ridiculous in it. not that it's the most ridic, but it's just the best 90's-era stoner picture. looks like a screenshot from the movie pcu. (this is ricky, and i have no clue if he's actually a stoner or not. certainly none of us were smoking that night.)

  1. i sat on the floor so that you'd have to also. mainly because i saw you were wearing a skirt. all that matters is the after party though. see y'round next time.
