West Coast Studio Tour Photos

Last month we went on the West Coast Studio Tour. We really only went to studios in Portland and San Francisco. The catalyst was Jamie and Kim’s wedding in Portland, which was wonderful by the way. There’s nothing better than travel. Especially for longer periods of time. The trip was well needed. It was a great transition from the 9-5 to our future self-employed world. Amazingly we met some amazing studio owners and learned a ton. We also got to see many great friends we don’t always see often: Justin/Heidi, John D, Mark/Maria, Ben, Tolya/Otto, Beb & Cara/Jon.

Since there were so many pictures and we’ve been so incredibly busy as of late, it’s taken thus far to get them up. Enjoy them anyways.

1967. California. Monterey Pop Festival. D.A. Pennebaker’s filming. The Mamas and the Papas and Otis Redding just ripped up the stage.

Then The Who come on…

Substitute got the job done. Summertime Blues got the grease in the gears. Then A Quick One While He’s Away. That shit must have blown the minds of all those tripped out little hippies. Fucking ay. Everytime I see The Who perform I fall more and more in love with them. Pete Townsend is perhaps the greatest rock guitarist ever. He’s more punk than Ian. You can’t argue that.
