Saturday, after the double-header weddings, I went to China town and stopped by "The Loft." My good buddy and old roommate Chon Peters invited me to come down and check it out. Chon is the Bar Manager there now, and it was a good event so I figured i'd stop by even though I was already pooped. It was a party for 'Contrast' magazine, and some good bands were playing so it turned out nice. Contrast mag is a sweet local magazine, its pretty much a skate, surf, art themed publication. I was honored to have one of my photos in their premiere issue a while ago. There were two bands playing, and I have been anxious to see both. The first band was "Anti-Social" and the second was "the Jump Offs." I've been meaning to see both these bands for some time now. So I guess I was lucky to see both of them in the one night that I finally drag myself out to an event (that was past my bedtime.) The Loft was pretty crowded (and hot)... anyone who was a somebody was there, from pro surfers to pro Ho's, from people who graduated in the 90's to people who dressed like they were from the 80's . I pretty much saw everyone I knew, from high school classmates to co-conspirators, it was a bit overwhelming. I had my camera with me, but I only brought my fish-eye lens. Also at that point I was pretty much over taking pictures from shooting all day at the weddings earlier, so I didnt take many photos. But I did manage to pop off a few shots...
