These fotos were taken on Friday, July 11th, 2014, at the Clam Rock Festival. Enjoy the manner in which the day changes: people and a big rainstorm. The bands played on…

Some late afternoon shots taken taken from the side of the stage… Hard to imagine the huge rainstorm that would arrive later that evening. Even though the storm turned the fields into very wet mud, people stayed and the shows went on as planned.

A very cool “headless” electric bass!

Schwertberg, Upper Austria

Here we are at our hotel, Tinschert, after a long day of flying: LAX to Frankfurt to Vienna, then a two hour drive from the airport to our hotel. I took a walk about the hotel, taking fotos. Please enjoy…

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!
