Steve LaRose pays a visit to my Casa; he brought beer, a bonus to all art discussions!
Steve and I chatted a bit about art, rock n roll, and the time just flew by!
We left my studio and drove across Seattle to catch Whiting Tennis play an opening slot for Califone, and Eric Johnson of the Fruit Bats at the Tractor in Ballard. I haven't seen Whiting play music since the late 80's when he was in Big Tube Squeezer, which for me were the Seattle equivalent of Minneapolis's Hüsker Dü. Whiting still knows how to drive the music, always a great front man, it was so good to see him on stage again! He has a new record out titled Three Leaf Clover. It was a very enjoyable Saturday night, and it was good to see Steve, Whiting, and converse all things artistic. The night went too fast!
