Creatures of the Night

Halloween itself was fun. Deb and I set up to hand out candy but either because of our location behind a school or because of sidewalk construction on our block we only got about 9 kids. But that was fine too. Afterward, I went down to the Grand Opera House in Dubuque to shoot the Betty and the Headlights concert which was followed by a costume contest and a screening of Rocky Horror. While I was photographing the concert, I got felt up by one of the people playing Dr. Frank N. Furter. Not that I'm complaining I suppose. The whole band was dressed as Rocky characters. The drummer, whose name is Woodstock was wearing a red corset, garters and hose so hard to tell if he was doing Frank or someone else from the floor show scene. The bass player was Eddie. The lead singer was Magenta. The lead guitarist was Riff Raff. The guest guitarist was one of the Transylvanians and the guest singer was Janet from the Floor Show scene. I got some pretty decent shots and some video. I was al over the place. On the stage, in the pit, up on the balconies and catwalk. Nice to have that freedom as a photographer. So here's a sampling of what I got.













I'm raking part of the day off today. I shot a product shot of a Prius this morning. This afternoon I'm priming my newly built front porch for painting and Deb is finishing that over the weekend. Then I'm headed to the farm for a couple days. I'll be back Sunday night to shoot Red Knife Lottery, a band from Milwaukee at the Busted Lift Bar in Dubuque.

*Edit* - The girl singing is my landlord's daughter.

Peace,

Wander

The first one..yeah after I saw it I thought it looked as good as any of the Creem Magazine shots I saw when I was a kid. And yes, Megan is hot. She's also a massage therapist and I was going to start going to her but thought it might be weird in social situations if your landlord's daughter has seen you naked and you are at a dinner party together. I know strange thought process.

This looks like it needs a PARTY sign in front of it!

It was definitely a party. We had an after party too in Wisconsin. I went to 3 states that night. We saw a band called the Lonely Goats at the after party.

Is it bad that I'm strangely turned on by the guy in the red corset? Something about the way his nipples seemed to have slipped out on accident...

maybe it has to do with his tongue in the first pic?

I wish it was even that logical. But no. I think it's kind of a turn on when a guy's comfortable enough with himself to dress like a slutty chick. :)

The guy doing Frank was really hot in that regard. Never a hint of embarassment. I don't even think he's gay. Just very confident. which is why I didn't mind when he felt me up. Because it was not like an actor playing Frank. It was like Frank.

He was having a ball. He's normally a progressive metal drummer and this band plays mostly classic rock/R&B but the chance to perform in this venue suited him well and really brought out his wild side.

They slipped out all night and were heavily comment ed on. He also got felt up by someone. He just never found out who it was. You are not the only one both male and female who were turned on by him. He's a really nice guy. Runs a tattoo parlour here in town.

Then we'll have to find a place to go see some live music next time I'm in town.

Yeah, we never had this big a venue when i was a kid going to see it. always a movie theater with limited space to do anything like this. So this was a great way to do it.
