Del The Funky Homosapien at Churchill’s

By | May 14th, 2011 | 4 Comments

I could give you my impressions of Del The Funky Homosapien from outside Churchill’s Friday night. Unlike the scores of people who got turned away from the sold-out show, I had a wristband. What I didn’t have was an oxygen kit to allow me to breathe in the swampy microclimate inside the venue, vacuum-packed with kids who still have the PSATs to worry about. No matter. I could hear Del, in town on his Golden Era tour, killing it from outside Churchill’s open side door. And Robby was inside losing a pound a minute for the love of the pixels. Here’s what he got.

Inside the 18+ crowd was limbering up for D! E! L!

Clap yo hands, say yeah!
There are at least two ways to measure this crowd, in number and in collective body temperature. Warm.


Someone let her into her cage.

    THIS is the way nightlife photography should be shot. Great, great shots. It’s hard to tell which one I like most, though I really dig the young women waiting against the wall.
