taken October 6, 2010 at Popscene at their old venue at 330 Ritch Street.

it's my favorite club ever in San Francisco. not too sketch, just an older hipster crowd. love the music, just the perfect remixes of MGMT, Joy Division, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Foster the People, you know! it's a good place to get away from obnoxious rap/hip hop and the crowds that dancing draws. this was taken the night i saw the Boxer Rebellion live and met up with friends from the East Bay. i took this picture after having grown tired of dancing. i love the dim lights and the disco ball and the remaining dancers moving towards the back stage. the empty, scattered chairs and tables in the foreground really catch my eye seeing this picture now-- like a disinterest or gap in the dancers and me or others that night.

look for this picture-- as it serves as the background image for my novel, The Muse Land. it could be Kennedy in the story, i like to think so, but in all honesty it's a photo that really expresses the sort of youth i'm writing about in that story.
