Our favorite part of this event was seeing everyone’s outfits, especially since a lot of people dressed up for Halloween. We saw a ton of Winona Ryders and Wednesday Adamms. The venue is so small and people are packed shoulder to shoulder, so we didn’t want to risk our dSLR’s life, and opted for cheap drugstore disposable cameras instead. We started with three, and lost one in a stampede at the Drums concert. When India got the photos developed she was in tears looking over them. There is something about the grain of film, even shitty film, that feels nostalgic and whimsical. They turn photos from images to fragments of history. We don’t know any of these people (besides Christian) but we fell in love with them, and hope you do too.
