Spinster Records and Seoul Kitchen, Oak Cliff, Dallas

1. Drive down to the Green Lights of Dallas; drive past them. Over Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and past the new trolley tracks, to Davis Street – 829.

Suburbia Music Festival 2014 Photo Blog/Experience Post

These are the pictures that someday kids look at, and conclude that they were born too late, and missed the days when everything was wild and free. Just like those photos of my uncle Dean in cowboy boots and underwear, canoeing the Current River…   Hailed by the aging Rolling Stone magazine as a festival…

Be Forgiven. (and listen to Daughters of the Soho Riots)
