You know, I definitely keep rock n' roll hours as a matter of course anyway, but it has definitely been awhile since my concert evening out included vodka cranberries, guys and girls pole dancing in the VIP section, a smoke machine, smokers smoking like machines, PBRs, tequila shots, a new camera, sweaty hugs and kisses, club dancing, a guy trying and failing do some groovy act with lighted ropes because he kept getting them tangled up, new friends, old friends, a rock photography show, humidity, and a post-show diner breakfast, all of which led to me arriving back at my vacation homebase of Hollywood, Florida at 5 IN THE AYE-EHM. I celebrated by sleeping in until 2PM and placing my smoky clothes and shoes in the far corner of my hosts' house.
Why did this happen? Because I went to see the Jacuzzi Boys at the New Times Broward-Palm Beach's "County Grind" at the Green Room in Fort Lauderdale! I love these guys, who give garage punk a quirky-cool-beachy spin. The Green Room crowd loved them too, moshed with great verve, and we were all treated to several new songs, beer thrown in the air, a beach ball thrown in the air, and tons of fun. Here's some photos from the very very very first usage of my new Canon 5D Mark III!
