Cloud Cult - The Independent - 5/12/2009

photo: Cloud Cult

This was such a fun show! Mellie and I had a table in the far right corner, next to Cloud Cult's merchandise booth, where we had a great view of the live painting taking place on stage, and were able to closely observe and participate in the silent auction for the 2 paintings being created on stage during the show.

At the end of the night one painting sold for about $1600, and the other for about $900. I watched one excited new owner talk with the painter, Connie, about how to transport the painting home to her apartment in a taxi cab. It was wonderful! Yet also very difficult to describe in a manner that does the events of the evening justice!

But check this out, for starters:

It was a sold out show, and the room was full of a lot of excited fans. We met a handful of Surfrider members, and also got to talk with some Cloud Cult fans who were unfamiliar with our organization's work.

Thanks again to Jason who was the Independent's House Manager that night, who took excellent care of us, as always! Thanks to John from the Independent and Connie from Cloud Cult for granting us permission in advance to set up the outreach table, and for providing us with a guest list spot.
