The Tubes at the Triple Door

Old School! The Tubes took the stage at the Triple Door in Seattle for two nights. Countless costumes, countless classics, constant entertainment! Fee Waybill was the ultimate gentleman outside the show when we met and the ultimate bad boy on stage. Maybe my favorite moment of the night was him calling a guy out saying "There's nothing like watching some dude eat noodles and text messaging while I'm singing a fucking song." Ouch.

Many classic hits were played like White Punks on Dope and She's a Beauty

There were some props I probably shouldn't talk about in the blog but you can see in some of the pics below. One of my favorite photography techniques is to paint with light. Basically you set up a long exposure and use a flashlight to "paint" your subject with light were you want your subject to be illuminated. Maybe one of the coolest concert moments ever: The lights went out so Fee grabbed a flashlight and painted himself with light. He was wearing a spiked leather thong and mask and I'm pretty sure nothing else at the time. Rock and Roll!

Decades before Marilyn Manson and Lady Gaga were wearing outrageous costumes and creating art on stage, the Tubes were laying the foundation for shock rock at it's finest! Here are a few of my favorite pics from the night. I hope you like them.
