Last night Hi My Name Is Ryan gave a history lecture on the trunk space at the close of the indie 500 festival. It didn’t hit me until I was about to close the performance with an acapella cover of “hello, goodnight” that, this is the last time I’ll be able to do this here. Chills ran over my body and I started to cry. It wasn’t sadness though, it was tears of appreciation and thankfulness. It was really cool and special to me and I know a lot of other people feel the same.

In 2006 I was doing a lot of photobooth art. That is when I got my first offer to be included in an art show. It was a group photography show and my small section of wall space that had photo-booth magnets of my friends wearing my clothes got some criticism for not being “real art” or “real photography” since I didn’t ACTUALLY do anything except pay for the strips to be developed.
Dan’s “Living Room Tour” last year was incredible, and not just for the obvious intimate setting, mixed with close friends/nice people mixed with food…etc it was because I think Dan understood what so many other solo performers REALLY should learn and that is “say yes to the request!”
When I saw him perform last year in a backyard in Scottsdale, AZ, I would say 98% of his set list consisted of requests and he didn’t once say “sorry, I don’t know that one too bad” or “I don’t play ____ anymore because yada yada yada blah blah blah” like some sort of pretentious music snob who has outgrown their own music!!!!! he played EVERY SINGLE SONG that was requested and although he fumbled over a few of the words/parts of the songs it didn’t matter BECAUSE the people in the crowd wanted to hear it so they could SING ALONG! AND have a great night!

Here are two photos of me laying on the stage at The Paper Heart Gallery while local Phoenix Ska band “Work Shirt Wonder” tries to play a show. I don’t really remember why I was doing that but I was looking through a folder on my computer labelled “azska” and found them and thought I would share.
