So my mother quilts and is pretty nerdy. There aren’t a ton of gift options in that particular Venn diagram overlap, so I went ahead and made her this custom iPad cover.
She’s pretty partial to the log cabin blocks, and apparently this pattern in particular. Setting up rectangles in Illustrator for the pattern didn’t take all that long (thanks, snap to grid!), but making all of the “fabrics” was a little time-consuming. It’s 13 different patterns, that I set up and then saved as swatches in Illustrator. I’ve always been a lot better at fabric picking than I was at the actual construction part of quilting, anyway.
Update: You can now order prints of these photos for Between the Buried and Me, Animals as Leaders, or Tesseract.
I’ve seen these guys a handful of times (earlier this year, in Cleveland, with Opeth, etc). They’re really amazing live.
The other bands on their tour, I’d never seen live. Actually, I hadn’t even really heard any of their music before now, but they both have a really interesting sound.
Tesseract was on first:
Then Animals as Leaders. Honestly, I got so distracted watching these guys that I kind of forgot to shoot for a minute.
As always, there are more photos on Facebook and on mooreclick.com/live.
Update: You can now order prints of these photos for Four Year Strong, Gallows, Title Fight, The Swellers, or Sharks.
So instead of going out shopping on Black Friday this year, I headed up to Altar Bar for the AP Tour.
Four Year Strong did an acoustic set before the show for a handful of fans, and Alan got into the holiday spirit.
They also did a very much non-acoustic set.
Some of the other bands got in on the fun – I think this is the bassist from Sharks?
Gallows’ singer decided to hang out with the crowd, and I Hail Mary’d this shot.
It was a crowd surfing kind of night.
Also on the bill was Title Fight…
