Pre Gig Swig

Posted by
Mooie (Vancouver, Canada) on 29 January 2013 in Documentary & Street.

Our front man was battling a sore throat that day... which actually made him sound... well, throaty. So he had a swig of Buckley's before we went on. Our mid gig swig is a group tequila shot... we do try to unleash the rock stars within.

I am not sure how or when, but posting on this blog has become my most accurate platform for creative expression. It's so inspiring to browse through other blogs and every comment is very appreciated!

Hipstamatic magic, it took me ages to see him :-)

@Curly: I guess that's magical... I did a bit of pp because there was this weird brown patch by the side of his face that I didn't like. So I made it a little contrast-y-er, which in turn made Billy harder to see. Thanks for commenting!

This might be my favorite shot of yours to date (and not because I'm a rocker with a Buckley's fetish)... it is off the chain COOL.

@Rick: I would have never pegged you for a rocker with a Buckley's fetish... not in a trillion years. Thanks for the wicked compliment :-p

@Devi: I know what you meant... :-) do you mean you don't see him? He is mostly on the left... a profile shot of his head and chest... does that help?
