Here’s me drinking a Mexican Coke in 2009 while sitting on a nicely colored picnic table
For those who don’t know. I co-founded, co-ran and was the event coordinator for a really cool “DIY community center” called 1919 Hemphill for ten years. It was like my baby and it’s what kept me in Fort Worth for so many years. Here is a nice video made by Viktor Villanueva.
It made me very proud and nostalgic. The later years of me running this space I would run into people who used to go to shows at 1919 but stopped when they hit a certain age. Those people are still in bands but don’t seem to give much attention to the place that let them hang out and play shows when they weren’t old enough to drink or be good at their instruments.
Anywho, it’s a great place and I like this video.
This is a good video
I’ve only been to 1919 a handful of times over the last year. I miss it a lot.
Please spread this flier around the internet as much as you can (whether you are in any of these areas or whether you might know someone in these areas). Reblog this, post it on your Facebook, blogs, websites, etc. If you are going to one of these screenings please let us know and let others know, too! This is going to be the best and thanks to everyone for all the support so far! We will see you on the road!
August 12th, you local guys come out
I found this sweet ass jersey at Goodwill today
Nolan River Mall in Cleburne, Texas
I love these old style malls. Very basic connectors for a few lesser anchor stores. They seem to exist only in the boondocks for the most part. Makes you wonder what these types of places looked like in the 70s and 80s when they were assumedly thriving. Now they exist only to bake in the sun. Makes you wonder what the Christmas rush looks like
