Unfortunately I’m having difficulty with my camera…so I thought I’d at least post these photos I took with my phone. It was an awesome show! Enjoy!
(Thanks to Libby at MSO for the passes! Sorry about the pictures.)
I don’t have definite plans to go to this show as of yet, but if someone could hook me up with a comp ticket or two, that would be great! I’d love to write up a review of this show. Get a hold of me at HipsterApproved@gmail.com
