Last night was ROC Twestival, part of a worldwide series of charity events to promote the cause of education. These are entirely volunteer organized and hosted events. Our local hero you see pictured here, Matthew Raw, who again pulled of a great event and doing it while appearing as relaxed and laid back as ever!
This time it was at Lovin’ Cup which is behind Barnes&Nobles store at RIT. Now I had been to that bookstore many times, always walked in through the front door and left through the front door. This time I walked around store en route to Lovin’ Cup. Turns out there’s a whole village of cafes, restaurants and shops behind it! Made me think of Once Upon A Time In The West, the scene with Claudia Cardinale arriving at the train station. As she walks through the station house the camera pans over the building revealing the town behind it.
In the afternoon I realized that I hadn’t fed the beast that is Flickr in quite a while and decided to bring my camera which led to some frantic battery charging….
Some pretty good local bands played. I saw Moho Collective, Sinzibukwud Band, Eight Bar Measure, Teagan and the Tweeds, and missed some others.
I had a lot of fun taking pictures at the event; it was a bit like photographing Rochester’s famous people. See if you can spot all of them!
Mosey on over to the gallery!
