Show 26 of Janetpalooza: Boney Loner and the Sacred Teachers, The Lonely Teardrops, and The Milkstains
Emilio’s, RVA, 24 March 2012
(Flyer credit to whoever made the flyer. Other pics by me.)
After reading some great reviews, I was excited to finally get a chance to see a Boney Loner and the Sacred Teachers performance. Unfortunately, Boney Loner himself was unable to perform that night, so the Sacred Teachers held down the fort on their own with Jamie Lay moving from drums to vocal duties, and Raph from the Milkstains covering Jamie’s role as drummer.
^ Jamie Lay and the Sacred Teachers. I don’t remember as much about the music as I should, but I quite literally had my hands full. Jamie asked if I would mind recording the performance for him, so I was operating his video camera with my right hand (trying to catch all his leaping around while trying to avoid the dancing ladies and the man who kept walking back and forth in front of me). After starting his recording, I realized I would have no way to capture my OWN documentation, so I reached into my right pocket with my left hand (I am not left-handed), pulled out my phone, and somehow managed to take one not-too-shabby left-handed picture while simultaneously recording right-handed. *WHEW*
^ The Lonely Teardrops. The previously mentioned dancing ladies really seemed to like them.
^ The Milkstains. Holy hell, these guys rock!
^ This pic is blurry because I was dancing.
^ This pic is blurry because Raph was drumming JUST THAT FAST.
^ Gabe was awash in stage lights.
