News From Here

Before I run off for the holiday weekend, there's two things I wanted to let you all know about.

1. The new Double Door Inn is almost done. This version has been re-written, with lots of new interviews, and gives the full story of one of the greatest places I ever had the chance to walk into. I will post the Amazon and other links when it is ready, and then working on promoting the book from there.

2. I have been asked to exhibit for six months at a prominent gallery in Charlotte, featuring just concert photos I've taken in Charlotte, starting next month. Location coming shortly. I'll also be hanging this show myself, so I'll be turning the show prep time into a record-playing party. I'll be bringing a turntable, and playing records from my collection. Come by, hang out, and watch me figure out how the show will look. Opening night news will follow soon, as well.

As a great band once said, Shine On Brightly. Have a great weekend, safe travels, and see you on the road.

This Past Weekend

Thursday and Friday, one Mitchell's Fund event, one band interview for Tangents Magazine, one event in Shelby, NC with the Earl Scruggs Center, then back to town to photograph the Sonics and Dex Romweber at the Neighborhood Theatre. Photographing Rob Lind and Dex together in a photograph? Yep, did that. Saturday, one event with Olympian Dan O'Brien, Jazz Arts Initiative gala, and Blue Jean Bash. Sunday, photograph the Blumeys all day, with a slight detour to photograph Festa Italiana, and one Charlotte Symphony event at the Northwest School Of The Arts. This week, a day of recovery, and back to work on the upcoming photo show, and looking over the proofs of the new Double Door Inn book. Life is all around us, so let's live for today. See you in the photos, and see you on the road.

The Last Few Days

Saturday, four events, including a side trip to the Earl Scruggs Center in Shelby, NC. Sunday, drive to Ohio. Monday, drive back to NC to see X at the Neighborhood Theatre, only to get stuck in a three-hour long traffic jam. Tuesday, photos with the Allegro Foundation, and drive to Carrboro, NC to see X at the Cats Cradle. You'll see some of these photos soon. Good to see you again, Frank Heath, Chapel Hill & Carrboro. I've missed you. Drive home, and do way more work after 2am than even I should do. In-between, battle spring allergies, begin work on a new show of photos next month (more on this soon), and play a lot of records really loud.
Tonight, The Show That Never Ends continues to the Linda Foard Robertsevent at SOCO, and Carl Palmer at the Neighborhood Theatre. Hello to all other friendly travelers with a passport for insanity. See you through the blur, and see you on the road.
And yes, I'm playing this loud.

Suggestions For Photos For New Project

Hello all. I'm working on a new project that will feature my photos from many Charlotte concerts over the years. My question is this. What shows and/or venues would you like to see photos from, going back to 1996? Obviously, if you know that I was at that show, that would help, but all requests are welcome, and would help me put together something than I hope that more people will want to see. Suggestons? Requests? Post below. Thank you, and see you on the road.
