[Photo Gallery] The Buzzcocks – Fonda Music Box Theater 2006

    In 2006 I had a new Canon EOS consumer grade camera. I can no longer recall the model number. It was a good camera for a N00b. At the time, I had visions of becoming a famous rock photographer and after years of shooting small gigs for my online webzine, I was ready for the big time. Somehow, don’t ask me how, I managed to get entrance (and permission) to shoot The Buzzcocks at The Fonda Theater (AKA The Music Box) in Los Angeles.

    Infusio Days 9 and 10

    Note: I have tons of pics from days 9 & 10, but just haven’t had the energy to sort them and get them web-ready. I’ll add them at a later date. Until then, use your mind pictures. As always, if you have questions, comment below. I’m writing this a little over two weeks after my time at Infusio (and posting a month later). On Day 10, I had the most amazing burst of energy I’ve had in years! I felt normal, better than normal. I was in a GREAT mood and I could have done anything! But then I crashed. Hard.
