Tribute / Rich Kids On LCD

I was lucky enough to hang a bit with Rich Kids on LCD so long ago now.  I came across these photos when cleaning out my computer. Talk about a killer live show these guys put on one of the best shows I have ever seen.  In this show the head-singer was ragging so hard that right in the middle of one of his songs he fully puked.  Doesn't get more punk rock than that.  Are you joking me with the bassist here, broken hand and a mask on where you can see anything.  He was killing it so hard still.

I will always remember the good times I had with RKL, thanks for all the great shows.

Portfolio Online

Video of my printed photography portfolio.  A one of kind hand made book by West Coast Albums.  I designed the book to get rid of the plastic sleeves.  I hated the look of the plastic on my high end prints.
