The make-shift stage was set in the backyard of a private flat in Monroe, CT. Billy Voight or "Wild Bill" as to he is referred in these circles of hippies and hipsters, throws a party every year one week prior to the annual Gathering of the Vibes festival in Bridgeport, CT. This much smaller, quaint, intimate setting was held, like I said, in the backyard of a private home but the backyard was like set up for mini concerts. The stage was legit. It was a permanent structure manufactured with wood, it had a lot of square footage and a roof to boot. Across the lawn was a makeshift bar, but like a really awesome outside bar - the kind to rival a shitty little Florida beach bar at least. Anyways, I ended up making some t-shirts for this Wild Bill character and his event. It was a barter. Part of my fee was admission to the party. The jam band Twiddle ended up playing the event. It was my first time even hearing them. They were fucking great. Checkout the vid below, which I shot on my cell - I caught the last song of their set, "When It Rains It Pours".
I never won a Pulitzer.
