Tinderbox!!!!


Hello all!! How are you today? As promised, I have a bunch of photos from last Sunday to show you. My experience at Tinderbox was so special, I wanted to give you all a quick rundown, so here we go!


I started off the day by having a quick rehearsal with Owen... which was hectic, since I had to run back to the apartment afterwards to get ready and get some things sorted. I sadly had to miss some of the acts I was looking forward to seeing, but the rehearsal was much needed.

Once I got there, I spent a lot of time hanging out in the "artists lounge" upstairs. A part of it overlooked the main stage, and you could see performances from the balcony. This place was a dimly lit bar area where everyone stayed with their own entourages, and no one really talked to one another. Ordinarily I'd be put off by the snobbiness, but on this day, I wasn't really much for talking. I preferred to be in my litte corner, sipping my free coconut water.

Since I couldn't find another place to do it, I ended up having to put on my fake eyelashes in the artist's lounge, which was really not ideal. I got glue in one eye, and almost glued the other eye shut. But somehow I didn't go blind :P I'm sure it was a fun spectacle for at least some of the people there.

A few of the acts that I did catch were really awesome... a girl named Emily Wryn knocked my socks off! And Mal Blum, who I've been acquainted with for a few years, was equally great. The ending headliner, CocoRosie was interesting. Their style is very performance art-y. It actually reminded me a lot of art school. But in a good way :P



In the end, none of the stressful things mattered, and everything rocked. Here are some pictures from my jamz at the show!

This was my merch table, and some of the items on it. I've had those tote bags for a looong time. I'm probably looking to get some new stuff made pretty soon... t-shirts and stuff. If you're an artist and want to help me design something, give me a holla :) tinderbox 1 tinderbox 2

My lovely friend Jessica volunteered to help me man the table! tinderbox 3

And last but not least- here is me, Jess, and my friend Michelle who came out. I love these ladies so much! This event was so special, and I'm so lucky to have been a part of it. Props to everyone from Tinderbox for putting on such an amazing event. tinderbox 11 tinderbox 10photos by matthew panton
