Summer 2013

After a pretty awful week, I decided to do a summer sum up post as it was a pretty sweet summer.

Gallery: Delineate Opening Reception

Here are some photos from Friday night’s opening at Fort Useless. I’ve had those photos to myself for quite some time and it was good to finally share them with others. Photos in this gallery were taken by George Flanagan, Lisa La and me. Thanks to them both for taking over camera duty.

Mardi Gras at Fort Useless

Fun night at Fort Useless as we celebrated Mardi Gras with Gumbo, King Cake and Music. FYI – I got the baby in my slice of king cake and was the Queen of Mardi Gras – my crown was small and I couldn’t shoot while wearing it but Aleks Gylys took some photos with my camera to document it.

Gallery: Fort Useless 8/23/09

My friend Jeremiah (Stereoactive) and several of his friends have started a new event space that they are currently calling Fort Useless. They opened yesterday and I stopped by for awhile. I saw performances by, Jared Friedman (of Holy Moly), Sharon Van Etten, El Jezel, Manny Nomikos (of Coyote Eyes) and Kristie Redfield. They plan on having more music, some art exhibits and stand up comedy along with whatever other ideas they can come up with.
