Elm @ The Hemlock Tavern (01/15/2009) 2

Jon Porras (of Barn Owl) played a stunning set (accompanied by some beautiful naturalistic projections) last night at the Hemlock Tavern here in San Francisco. The pic and recording (both taken with my iPhone) don’t do the show justice but hey, it’s better than nothin’! Enjoy!


Note: The audio distorts a few times since I was unable to test levels with the application I was using.

“Christina’s World,” painted in 1948, shows a disabled Maine neighbor who drags herself through a field toward her house in the distance. The painting, displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, has been regarded as Wyeth’s most popular.”
