The DK Soul Project has been very active recently. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen them since December, when I took today’s photo.

This Friday (8/10/18) they will be at Paschal Winery, and Saturday (8/11/18) they will be at Ashland Arts Center.

Smoky Sunrise

Hoping for a smoke-free summer. The next 7+ weeks will be smoke free for me, but that’s because I won’t be in Ashland. Last year the smoke came late, as evidenced by this photo from early October.

The Love Song

yellow truck american flag grants pass sunset

Grants Pass patriot sunset

#redneck @marilynmanson @mmfa

Only rarely do I get involved with politics on the internet, but here goes.

A few months back I was heading to a show at the Rogue Theatre, and there was an amazing sunset happening. As I was about to take a photo of it, I saw this yahoo come out of a liquor store and jump in his bright yellow truck. With country music blaring and an engine putting out far more noise than was necessary he crossed the street and into my shot above. Immediately, his tires screeched to a halt, and he turned his truck in my direction.

He pulled up to me with one hand on his steering wheel and the other on, I can only guess, a gun in his lap. He yells at me, “What are you taking a photo of?!?!” To which I pointed at the sky and respond, “have you not noticed the sunset tonight?” He cussed and drove off, probably to his trailer park to consume his new purchase from the liquor store.

Once upon a time, I’m ashamed to admit, I was fairly right wing in my thinking. I was a proud patriot like this guy (well, maybe not that bad). Then, something happened. I lived in and traveled to many other countries. I found out that America wasn’t nearly as “special” as my upbringing led me to believe. People in other countries were nice, had different ways of thinking, and (gasp) actually had ways of doing things that were better than those in the USA.

Y&T @ Rogue Theatre

I Only Party With The Best

@YandTRocks @AaronLeighynt @DaveMeniketti

Y&T were huge in the San Francisco Bay Area when I was growing up. The radio stations (KOME, KSJO, KRQR) played songs off of Earthshaker, Black Tiger, and Mean Streak as much as they played Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, or AC/DC. I’m always a little surprised when I talk to people outside of the Bay Area about Y&T who haven’t heard of Y&T or only know Contagious and/or Summertime Girls (two songs I don’t particularly care for and never have heard–except live). I checked out after Mean Streak when they went soft.

Anyway, it’s odd to see them playing relatively small venues, outside the Bay Area, and the fan base knowing the songs I don’t know and not really getting that into the songs I love. That said, the only disappointing thing from my March 17, 2018 evening in Grants Pass was the omission of Midnight in Tokyo from the setlist. I’ve enjoyed over a thousand, real “midnights in Tokyo” and could have used another.
