Karl Blau at Kennelly Keys

Karl Blau played a solo acoustic set last night at Kennelly Keys Music in Anacortes.  It was vintage Karl, making jokes about tuning by ear, and sudden screams into the microphone.  I’d been waiting to get some good pictures of him for a while.

Recording with Bachelor Number Four

My friends in the band Bachelor Number Four invited me in to their recording session last night at the Unknown Studio in Anacortes.   They had put in a long day already by the time I had arrived but were gracious enough to allow me to lurk while they laid down the guitar/bass parts on several songs.
