Barely Human Fest @ El Club, 2/11-13/17

February 20, 2017 at 11:28 pm | Posted in Photos | Leave a comment

The first Barely Human Fest took place at El Club recently. I hope this becomes a regular event because it was astounding. ESG headlined the first night, and even though I had to leave after 5 songs to do my radio show, it was worth staying to the last minute I possibly could just to make sure I saw their set. Also John Bender played, I never imagined I would get to see him live either. Other highlights for me included HIDE, Casual Sweetheart, Staring Problem, Void Vision, ADULT., and of course Xeno & Oaklander.

Fall 2016 Road Trip

November 2, 2016 at 10:18 pm | Posted in Photos | Leave a comment

I drove to Los Angeles and back just because I wanted to, and to visit my cousin. I went by myself and tried not to have much of a plan, but I had to have some sort of timeline to fit with other peoples’ schedules. It might’ve been the best vacation I’ve ever taken. I’ve gone on vacations across the country with my family before, but actually driving by myself was an entirely new perspective. It was fascinating. I feel like I have a newfound appreciation for America, in an entirely unpolitical way. I bought a new camera just for the vacation because my other camera was broken and still being repaired (it’s fixed now). I took well over a thousand photos. A lot of them were just spontaneous shots while I was driving, and a lot of them were pretty redundant or bad shots, but there’s still hundreds worth posting. Enjoy!

    September 30


I drove to Chicago to visit my friend Eric who was having a birthday celebration at a bar/arcade that had free game play that night.

I didn’t stay anywhere to sleep overnight, I just kept driving and took a nap for a couple hours at a rest stop in the morning. Also, my camera’s battery ran out, and since I didn’t stop anywhere to sleep, I had to wait until the afternoon to recharge, when I stopped to eat somewhere. I drove to Denver and walked around downtown and then visited my friend Catdog.

I drove from Denver to Los Angeles in one shot. I didn’t end up in Los Angeles til about 2AM (Pacific Time) but this took me through the Rocky Mountains, which was mindblowing.

I went to Amoeba in the morning, and later we went to a park where there’s an abandoned zoo. There was also a haunted hayride set up, and they let us walk around for free. At night I went out to Low End Theory for a little bit.

My last day in Los Angeles. Went to Amoeba again, walked around another park area, this time went hiking to a waterfall which was just a trickle because there was a drought.

I started driving back in the morning. At one point I had to stop and call AAA because I was about to run out of gas and I just missed the last exit for hundreds of miles. So it was mostly just a day of driving through the desert.

After staying overnight at a hotel in Utah, I continued driving, and took photos at as many view areas as I could. My camera was running out of space, though, so I put it away after a while and kept driving.

Jandek @ El Club, 6/3/16

June 12, 2016 at 12:23 pm | Posted in Photos | Leave a comment

My camera is still broken, so these are from my phone, giving them an extra Loch Ness Monster sighting feel.
I saw him a decade ago in Austin and it was exactly what I expected. This was way different. There was way more dancing than I expected from a Jandek show. There was a guy playing keyboards, a guy with a drum machine, a guy with a bass guitar, and a woman who was duetting and dancing with Jandek, and the lyrics were actually kind of silly a lot of the time. Hopefully it’ll get released as a DVD sometime in the future so you can see for yourself how fun and bizarre it was.











Trip Metal Fest, Detroit, Memorial Day Weekend, 2016

June 1, 2016 at 8:51 pm | Posted in DEMF, Photos, Trip Metal Fest | Leave a comment

This past weekend, Wolf Eyes hosted Trip Metal Fest in Detroit, which included shows at El Club in Mexicantown, discussions at Trinosophes, and film screenings at Third Man Records, Cinema Detroit, and Trinosophes, as well as an afterparty with Fit Sound and a noise brunch at the Jam Handy. I made it out to all three nights of performances at El Club as well as one of the discussions and two of the film screenings. It was also Movement (DEMF) weekend in downtown Detroit, and I got a media pass, but I only ended up going once, to see Honey Soundsystem (featuring my old college buddy Josh Cheon, who now runs the Dark Entries label). I also went to a discussion at MOCAD featuring Juan Atkins, Derrick May, and Kevin Saunderson, and I also visited Submerge (the Underground Resistance headquarters) and wandered around Detroit and took photos and stuff.
TMF was incredibly awesome, it was well organized, the sound and lighting were great, and most of the performances I caught were incredible. Hieroglyphic Being with Marshall Allen and Danny Ray Thompson of the Sun Ra Arkestra was probably the best set I’ve seen all year, and Morton Subotnick’s set was a once in a lifetime experience. Other favorites included Pod Blotz, Shades, Cotton Museum & Apetechnology, Panicsville (who did a magic show), Andrew WK performing a Bach piece with Twig Harper and Nate Young, etc.
