Live Show Photos: The Sky Drops. April 28, 2011 in Houston, Texas.

Yes, I realize these photos are almost criminally delayed, but whatever; I love The Sky Drops, so I'm posting them, delayed or not! I was lucky enough to see The Sky Drops (along with Bloody Knives and Love Culture) at Super Happy Fun Land in Houston, Texas on April 28, 2011, and needless to say, it was amazing! Since I was also djing in between sets with Brandon Duhon, I wasn't able to photograph the other bands (who all kicked ass, btw), but managed to snap a few images of The Sky Drops' Rob Montejo and Monika Bullette before returning to my dj duties. As per usual, after one or two normal images, my camera turned on its infamous "gazer setting", hence the increasingly psychedelic photos that followed. I didn't doctor these photos at all, my camera is just notoriously on acid. Enjoy! xo Amber.


My favorite photo of the set. Rob and Monika in a beautiful electric blue blur.

Oh, look, here's a normal-ish looking photo before my camera went gazer!

And the camera begins it's descent into acid photography. Rob and Monika can certainly make quite a beautiful racket with only two people in the band! Very impressive.

***

Rob - doing what a gazer does best; stomping on those fx pedals.

***
Monika plays drums and sings beautifully simultaneously...NOT an easy feat!

***

Darkness. A green guitar. A ghostly Rob Montejo.

Rob (who I may or may not have a crush on), in electric blue.

The beautiful Monika Bullette. She bangs the drums, bathed in green light.

A clearer photo of Rob doing his thing. Check out the backdrop...that venue is pretty wild.
