1,500 notes on this post, which is probably at least 1,000 more than all my other posts combined. Glad folks are enjoying the photos.
Throwback Thursday: Blink (pre-182) at Berkeley Square, 1995.
A band I was in shared management with Blink when they were first starting out. They were still unsigned and they hadn’t yet added the “182” to their name. We played a bunch of shows with them, including this one at the Berkeley Square in August of 1995.
They were nice guys, but I didn’t think they were anything special. The fact that labels were falling over each other to throw money at them really confused me. This proves that I would have been a terrible A&R man.
Not sure who took the photos, sorry.
First day out with a borrowed 40D. Just learning my way around this thing.
Thrilled to have seen Thou twice in 24 hours. One of the most earnest, honest, talented, and inspiring bands around. These pictures are from their 4/20 at Toys in Babeland in Oakland. Taken with an iPhone 4s and an olloclip.
