Vance Cox - Photography and Art | Adrian Belew - Smith's Olde Bar, ATL 082207

These are shots from Adrian Belew's Power Trio from 8/22/2007 at Smith's Olde Bar, Atlanta, GA. The light was pretty dingy and Belew moves around very quickly. Got a chance to meet him afterwards and he was drinking a mysterious neon green drink in a martini glass. Apple-tini? I sent my pix care of Belew's website and a couple days later, I heard from his "web hamster" who asked if I was the photographer at the bar with the "unusually large lens" (Smith's bar is VERY intimate and anything larger than 70mm was pretty unnecessary) -- I said that I was and he ended up using one of my pix on their site for a couple of months. Very cool! Especially like the shots of barefoot bassist Julie Slick. I think she was 21 at the time. Her brother on drums, Eric was not even 21 at the time. I didn't bring daughter Helen since she was under 21 and it was a 21 and over show. HEY! Not many shots of Eric that night as I was pinned on the other side of the stage. Got more good ones of Eric the next year.
