Obey Giant Published A Few Pictures Of Bad Brains Show And I Am In Them!


On Saturday, I attended the very rowdy show at Shepard Fairey’s studios with a performance by Trash Talk and Bad Brains featuring Daryl Jennifer, Peter Stahl of Scream, Chuck Treece of McRad, Moby and secret guest Dave Grohl, while the exhibition ‘Banned in Babylon: The Art and Culture of Bad Brains’ was opening at Subliminal Projects.

Fairey wrote a recap of the events on his blog, and to show how wild things were, here is an excerpt of his writing: ’The energy was out of control, we almost got shut down by the fire marshal but I had the time of my life and was reminded why this music and its spirit means so much to so many people, including me.’

Sure, and ‘out of control’ seems to be an understatement, it was pure mayhem, but it was truly a crazy experience, and also a fantastic surprise and honor to wake up and recognize myself on two pictures that were posted on Obey Giant’s website! One was taken during Trash Talk, and the other one a bit later during supergroup Bad Brains’ performance. I still don’t know how the security let me go on the side of the stage, they were probably very overwhelmed by what was happening, but I am forever thankful and grateful, since this allowed me to take pictures in a relatively safe zone, something that would have been impossible otherwise.
