Concert By Waller Creek – Spring 2010

This was a magical gig. We played a lunchtime gig in a gorgeous, secluded little amphitheater on UT’s campus, tucked away behind the Texas-Exes building, on Waller Creek. Big thanks to the Exes for use of the theatre and parking.

The sun came out after a gray morning. A great group of players assembled: Chris Vestre on guitar, Gray Parsons on drums, Oliver Steck on trumpet, Thomas VanDerBrook on Sax, LIndsay Green on bass, and Derek Morris on keys. We jammed a set of beach songs that we’ll soon record as Fok Dub.

A senior group, who I had given presentations to (about social media and Facebook) were having a luncheon just inside and filled the terrace for cocktails, blew bubbles and cheered me on.

When I watch the Flip cam I set up to record us, I see that the battery started to wear down at the end, just as we start our dub instrumental, so that it starts randomly dropping frames and creating this super cool, perfectly appropriate strobe effect. It’s pretty trippy in full-screen mode.

KLRU’s bonita Sarita brought her camera to film (above) and Austin made it (from an interview) in time to capture the scene (below). Thanks to both.

Great, wonderful gig. Thanks to all who helped put it on, came out, contributed, captured and enjoyed. There are more photos at flickr.

We played some instrumental exit music for our closing number. The video camera was dying so it started skipping frames (about a min in) which created the coolest video effect I never meant to do!
