Rando – 5.26.10

I  didn’t want to go out last night. Honestly I haven’t been wanting to go out much at all, but I felt like I needed to force myself to get out of the house.  I am going to try to do that tonight too, but I have just been constantly exhausted lately.  I didn’t really know what I was going to do last night but some girls texted me and convinced me to go to Rando at Gallery Bar.  Dances With White girls does the party there and I had been meaning to check it out but I hadn’t quite gotten around to it.  I figured I would show up for a bit hang out and then find something else to do.  I wasn’t really planning on shooting any pictures but a ton of people I love were there so the camera came out and 20 minutes later I realized I would be hanging out for a while.

That place is so grimy and dark and hot.  It reminds me a lot of when I first started going to Lit.  And when you have a lot of heat and darkness and lockable bathrooms combined with good dance music you know there is going to be trouble.  I had a blast and I took a lot of photos which I have been outlawed from posting.  This is of course terrible and unfortunate, but it only means that the party got out of hand… and that is always a good thing.  I am sure the next time I shoot Rando some more debaucherous things will come to light. It is that kind of scene.

In fact… right after I walked out of the door there was a huge brawl outside where a girl got punched in the face and the dude who did it got a bottle broken over his head.  I saw most of it happen but it was far away and I couldn’t really shoot pictures while I was running down the block.  I got off a couple of shots with my 35mm point and shoot but I have a feeling they aren’t going to come out that well. After the fight I ended up partying on the rooftop of the McKibben lofts in Brooklyn until 6 am.  Good God.

Anyway, the party was great and I am sure I will be back at least once before I go on vacation in July so look for that.  In the mean time take a look at the unfortunately tame, but still fun photos from last night’s Rando at Gallery bar by clicking here.

Ps. Shout out to Subdrive.

    I don’t remember posing with a poker chip in my mouth.
