HoZac Blackout 2012: Photo Recap

Rather than try to describe the ear-splitting glory that was the 2012 HoZac Blackout, here’s a smattering of the thousand-plus photos I took last month (how time fliesβ€”yikes!). For a more in-depth look, check out the 100-pic gallery here. You can also view provocative band portraits from that weekend in my previous blog post. I shot video (of questionable quality) for most of the bands, too. If any are halfway decent, I’ll (hopefully!) post them sometime in the next six months.

The Many Faces of HoZac Records: Blackout 2012 edition

The mere thought of sifting through the thousand-plus underexposed / overexposed / blurry / out-of-focus shots I snapped at the HoZac Blackout two weekends ago was so overwhelming that I decided to ease myself into the abyss with the band portraits I took that weekend. Unfortunately, due to varying degrees of senility, tardiness, hunger, and/or exhaustion, I failed to capture all the bands that played. (Steven/Redd Kross, if you’re reading this, sorry I had to bail! Will you take a raincheck?)

In any case, here are the portraits I managed to wrangle over the course of those four days, starting with the opening-night art show and concluding with the legendary Roky Erickson (a wholly unexpected development, I might add). Incidentally, I displayed a bunch of prints at the art show but forgot to take a self-portrait that night. I also forgot about taking portraits by the time Cemetery and Mentally Ill played. I suppose if this mental lapse had to happen anywhere, what better place than at the Blackout.

In the next few weeks I’ll be posting photos of the actual performances as well as a revealing interview with the latest teen-pop sensation out of Minneapolis, Cozy. Stay tuned!
