FIRST FRIDAY! What an amazing night.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR HELPING MAKE THIS PROJECT A SUCCESS! Huge thanks to The Arts at Mark's Garage, CoffeeLine, and Re-Use Hawai'i. Thanks to all of the students and faculty in the UH Manoa Art Department. This project would not have been possible without everyones hard work and participation.

Here is a great shot from the truck cab of Jeff riding as one of our two bicycle chaperone's. They rode behind the shanty as we transported it from UH Manoa to Arts @ Marks Garage in Chinatown.

We setup shop and the folks at Marks Garage were amazing hosts. Jeff and I traded off with some air guitar backup. I was rocking the Sabbath as he took the flying-V outside. I want to find a way to brink this thing home! This was compliments of students in the fiber class. It got a lot of heavy use last night.

After things got rolling, the scene was mad. People were waiting in line for a shot at the mic. Mark's Garage had enough space set aside for some good loitering. As I was standing on the sidewalk I caught a quick celebrity sighting as Jin walked right past. I should have had him and his lady friend sing.

Crowded and happy. Lots of "all play" songs in the end.

This is just a great shot. I like that someone allowed a passerby to help out in a song.
