hi folks! i have two HUGE announcements! ready? :D
design*sponge has a book coming out at the end of the month and they're going on a book tour! they're stopping in washington d.c., los angeles, nashville, [etc.] AND chicago! details on timing and location aren't posted yet, BUT they're coming for TWO days in october. mark your calendars, designers, thrifters & d.i.y-ers!
two weeks ago i got the opportunity [from a fellow photographer i work with] to photograph warped tour - meaning i got a free media pass & got to feel the sweat dripping off hayley williams [of paramore] :]
well... peter ended up giving me the contact information for the concert review site he works for, and last week i contacted them about contributing. they said they'd love to have me! so i gave them a list of shows i would love to shoot within the next couple weeks [peter bjorn & john; incubus; death cab for cutie; jack's mannequin/guster], and waited.
today when i got home from work, i got an email from the company saying that i got approved to shoot...
on sunday! i have loved them since i was in junior high, but have never been able to get tickets to a show. now i have the opportunity to be a foot away from brandon boyd!? un.be.lieve.able.
