Phoenix Illuminated

End of August, Phoenix was set to play at Variety Playhouse, unfortunately when I discovered this, the show was SOLD OUT. later I was told that the afternoon of the show they had arranged to play a free show at Criminal Records (a record/knick knack store). my buddy at work and I left during our lunch break and hightailed it to Little Five for a personal jam session with some cool ass dudes. 
hung around this little character
so sentimental, not sentimental no
the tunes were not as poppy nor loud due to the small setting and troublesome speaker system but, damn, I enjoyed every second! Couldn’t even contain myself enough to stand still, and did see a couple other folks bouncing around, though a lot of the folks were chill (it was broad daylight and no booze was involved). . .I  bet the show later that night was crunk
some art to my right, very interestinggg
I didn’t even attempt to get in for the show later that night-which I originally planned to make a sign and hold it outside the venue-it was enough for me until they come around again 
and was so thankful to have seen them!
moving along///
here’s a shot of my most recent jewelry purchase from the East Atlanta Village Strut from the lovely lady behind Hot Pink Poo. It’s all made of vintage materials and I’m in love with the wings! 
Le Flash was last weekend in the neighborhood and I wish that everyone could have made it out to see the illuminated art. Here’s a description from the website that describes the idea better than I:
an ambient evening of glowing performance and experimental vision
this lady in lace was freaky! she held COMPLETELY still and then grabbed my arm as I walked by! Ashleigh was so frazzled she didn’t see a nearby piece of art and ran right into it, spooky I tell you!
good side/bad side, hahah.
dress-vintage (bought from KJO at the yard sale held months ago-ultra comfy!), leggings-thrifted, shoes & hat-Urban, purse-Michael Kors
this chick wired herself with LED lights and showed them off in the line to the water closet. Ashliegh and I simultaneously gave a “OOOOOOO!”
cargo dancers in the night
they invited the crowd up and one by one we piled in and boogied our booties off! 
“Peep Show”
couple buildings down from my front door, this could be seen.
this art show was so brilliant, it’s an annual event so don’t miss it next year!
today I’m visiting Smith’s Olde Bar to watch the game, then it’s onto Ashliegh’s birthday dinner and outing. Hope you all are enjoying your weekend!!

    Maverick Malone-the pink bunny is a KidRobot and you can buy them on the web, such a cute collection-they even made Hello Kitty ones!

    thank you all for your kind words!
