February recap: Nitrate and Kinogeists in Los Angeles, with DAVE MCKEAN

Thanks so much to Billy Shire for hosting us at his massive Billy Shire Fine Arts location in Culver City!  The show was amazing, and we all had a fantastic time.  Followers of Century Guild on Twitter got real-time updates, and here is the recap!  (It’s all photos, so please be patient…)

The view from my stairs as I left for the airport!!!

And- the view from our car hours later, in Los Angeles!

Among the many meth addicts we saw, he was the most peaceful.

The night before the show: Jack was severely disappointed by the tameness of above-promised goods.

The best part about travel is catching up with friends, and making new ones.  It was really great to meet Kitty Mihos and Drew Johnston, Brendan McCarthy, Barron’s better half Petra (!), and my all-time favorite people on Earth for the next millenium or two, Stephanie and HER better half, Robert Boulter…

But more about Stephanie and Robert in the NEXT post…

  1. With a name like Filth Mart, my expectations would also have been very high (or low, depending on your perspective).
