cassettes on fire

Photo documentation of one of the greatest and yet most painful nights of my short existence. This was the last show at the cassette house/1008 ½ strawbridge ave. The place where I cut my performing teeth, the place where I first saw some of what are now my favorite bands (i.e. la dispute, native, kit fisto) and most importantly where I met some of the most wonderful people anyone could be lucky enough to know . These people here are destined for great things.
