• 9.21.8 Bill Frisell & Nels Cline at Henry Miller- Big Sur, CA

    When I heard that Nels will be playing with Bill Frisell in Big Sur , I freaked out. Luckily I could (easily) coerce my friends Phebbie and Josh to all attend as we would already be in Santa Cruz that weekend. It was, as I insisted mentally, necessary to be there – to realign the construction of our consciousness – on behalf of ourselves and as witness for humanity. What more could you dream of than being in the middle of beautiful Big Sur’s grand surrounding of giant redwoods listening to Frisell, Nels, and then BOTH?

  • 3.20.8 Carla Bozulich at the Safari Sams

    I was excited to finally see Carla performs for the first time. I heard that the music is super intense. She kicked off her Evangelista‘s tour playing on the same bill as Mike Watt. But I got there late and missed Watt’s set entirely.

    And YES. It was INTENSE. Dramatic. Spirit-filled. Amazing.

  • 2.14.8 John Zorn’s Annual Valentine’s Day Improv Night-a Stone Benefit

    So, I took the opportunity for being in the city to check out the Stone. I particularly was looking forward to see John Zorn playing there. I had to work a little bit to get the permission to photograph inside the place. Not without Zorn’s chuckling at me about it, I finally got the permission. I think I still need to earn more his trust. Then again, rightfully, once I arrived to the show, I found the intimate venue filled with attentive audience was truly justified in the banning of photography. I only took a few shots when the music was less quiet.
