I spent the weekend in Chicago out shooting Pitchfork Music Fest, Chicago Exxxotica and primarily a Sailor Jerry sponsored three day party called Cobrafest. Cobrafest is a Pitchfork after party that takes place at Cobra Lounge. Cobra Lounge is less than a block from Pitchfork so it’s a pretty ideal place for an after party. Each night a bunch of bands played and Sailor Jerry gave out rum and tattoos to the bands. The Chicago Tattooing Company provided the ink with Nick Colella doing the tattoos on Friday and Saturday and Frank William took over on Sunday.
I am gonna try to bang out all three days before I get on a plane today so I am going to make these quick. There are a lot of photos to get to!
Friday night featured Far-Out Fangtooth, Stagnant Pools and Psychic Paramount opening for the really amazing Human Eye. Human Eye pretty much killed it and their front man, Timmy Vulgar invited me to Detroit to eat tacos. Clearly, I should not pass this opportunity up. A bunch of people got tattooed and fun was had by all. Let’s get to the pictures!
