Petaluma – California

I walked outside The Mystic Theater, after load in and before sound check, and got these fotos in the sunlight of the early evening… Taken June 27, 2014…

South Pasadena – Olga – Garfield Avenue

Just before the GMOI Cal Mini Tour (late June, 2014), at our usual rehearsal location in South Pasadena, Bob Duffey, our manager, took fotos of us for our upcoming performances with symphonies. I couldn’t resist taking fotos of him taking fotos… The youngster is Bob’s grandson. He would let us know which fotos were BAD!!!

Los Angeles – Mount Olympus – KPFK

In late June, 2014, The Grandmothers of Invention performed a California mini tour. We played Catalina’s in LA, The Mystic Theater in Petaluma and Yoshi’s in SF. As promo for the Catalina performance, we did a radio interview on July 19th at the legendary KPFK studios. It was FUN!

Queensland – Australia

These fotos were taken in the middle of April, 2014. Just getting them up today, July 7, 2014, as I prepare to clear my ipad storage for our Germany tour: July 9th thru July 21st.
These first three fotos were taken from my hotel room on the Gold Coast while performing for three days at The Bluesfest in Byron Bay.

These next four fotos are down at the beach. I swam everyday! Water was warm and clear. Surfers didn’t wear wetsuits. You can see Chris Garcia here on his cell phone getting more gigs for the various groups he plays in. So beautiful…

This foto is of a tree along the street near the beach at dusk. There are many of these trees up and down the street. At this time in the evening they are loaded up with birds and the birds are VERY vocal: an amazing concert of bird song!

These six fotos were taken backstage at the festival. This was the same stage we performed on three times in three days. We shared it with The Magic Band, among others. Notice the youngster with his big ear protectors.
