Counter Crawl IV
as promised, here are my pictures from Counter Crawl IV. don’t know what i mean by CCIV? here is a quote from their website (the video is dated, but you get the idea)
“The concept of Countercrawl is that local, up and coming artists of limited means within this vibrant community (Houston: downtown/ east side) are able to meet and have a dialogue with their peers in an effort to organically grow into a community of self-sustaining artists.”
Mak and I didn’t ride the whole route, but did party it up at Down Together.
lovin’ all the signage. in particular the one from “over protective plant parents”
great smile makenzie, looks like we don’t even like each other.
Y.E.T.’s super cool and shady nap tent. we totally took advantage of this as a way to beat the heat.
boys training in aikido. love the way matt’s face got framed in that pennant.
Food Not Bombs provided the food. I made cilantro rice, watermelon + mint. while make made pasta + red sauce. Proud to say that we got all those ingredients at our neighborhood Fiesta for $5.05
super cute SmileBooth. can’t wait until the pics show up online. Mak and I took a million, are you surprised ?
Sway’s performance art piece: potting soil + onions
new friends all coming together and sharing the experience
my 3 favorite pictures. how many goofy things can you find in the one above ? my favorite is dan’s face (far left)
after a ful afternoon of napping, dancing, performaning, watching, photoboothing, eating, and small talking the group was off to the next stop. Mak and I had prior commitments (another friend’s pool party, dinner date, and babysitting job) so we skipped out on Super Happy Fun Land and notsouH’s. but we did catch up with the gang for the CCIV after party at House of Creep where i some how got left in charge of a 6ft plastic spear. we also mashed in the mash pit of 3 loud screaming bands – so exhilarating. One of counter crawl’s co-founders, john, told mak and i that CC never “ends” in fact it goes on forever. we smiled and nodded.
The next Counter Crawl (1 year anniversary party) is going down in june, you can bet we’ve already started counting down!
