the obnoxious guest

last week i visited Once Upon a Crime in Minneapolis to hear Anthony Neil Smith read from The Drummer. (What a great cover!) The book both captures and pays tribute to a fascinating and weird period of rock history when the spectacle often overshadowed the music.

Neil posted about his visit here:

and posted photos. it was neil's booksigning, not mine. but guess who's in 2 out of 3 of photos? front and center?

but that's enough about me, let's talk about me.


top photo: chris everheart and gary bush -- both have fantastic stories in Twin Cities Noir.

then we have Anthony Neil Smith signing a copy of The Drummer.

then we have Gary Shulze, one of the owners of Once Upon a Crime.
Pat Frovarp and Steve Stillwell are off-stage.

In every pic I see of you, you look a little different. The one thing I can count on being the same is the awesome red. =D

Patrick Shawn Bagley said...

Mmm...redheads. Look, I just made Anne blush.

Okay, back to work.

patrick: i'm just an imposter redhead. :D

once upon a crime is SUCH a cool bookstore.

You know, I only had three shots from the event anyway...and I'm in two of those...after all, who wants to look at *me*?
