Surreal moments in the Northwest – 5/12 – Mirkwood, Arlington
Second gig coming up! This time, we move to the city of Arlington. We will be rocking the lovely Mirkwood Public House. But before we do that, there’s stuff to be done. Not that much, however. Yet, still. Read here, once again, about my adventures with Z.E.R.O.. The musical consortium with varying personnel. This time: Kevin Crosby, Rupert Kettle, Ike Willis, Prairie Prince and yours truly (that would be me). Here we go!
In the morning
As we arrived home very late (or early, depending on which side of the clock you’re on), the day didn’t start off at a morning hour. Coffee was needed (and had). Breakfast at 7/11 (I think I am pretty sure about that) and then some hours to spend doing not much more that hanging in on the front porch, chatting away with Kevin and Prairie. Today, we’d have to leave around 2pm, so there was time. Time for Prairie, for example, to single-handedly create a really cool and unique Z.E.R.O. drum head.
So, with all that done … it was time to get ourselves in The Van and head out to Arlington.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen as well, Arlington. What a great place! The drive to it was also great, actually. After a few days of overcast, it had cleared up completely and Prairie and I enjoyed some great views on the way there. I think we saw Mt. Baker. Or perhaps another mountain. But it was surely a mountain of great proportions! Kinda like Billy.
Here’s some still footage from the evening in Arlington (photos by Fred Händl – that’s me), in pretty much chronological order.
And now … some amazing photo’s by Joe Mabel
Thanks, Joe! These pictures rock!!
