rock and roll...

Back when i actually used to go out and stay up late to watch rock and roll shows i also used to shoot many of them... this was Indian Jewelry back in May of 2008  in the only good bar in Knoxville, TN called the Pilot Light. I had seen them open for someone at Spaceland in LA a year or two before and was just kinda whatever about them at the time, but the show in Knoxville was captivating.

 I had to go to Knoxville every year for work and came back to this place every night i was there on each trip. Even made a few friends. Bought a 1972 Fender Musicmaster Bass from this guy Will Fist after he played his set which was one 20-minute song. It was actually good, very Spacemen 3 before everyone and their mother referenced Spacemen 3 to be cool.  I asked him about the bass the year before and he remembered and asked me a year later if i still wanted it. Guess he needed money. Paid him the $175 asking price.

I should get out more these days.
