This is in the Kathedral, on Queen Street in Toronto. My friends had a punk band which played there about once a month. That’s Sam on the right, he was the lead singer and guitarist, and the girl with the tongue was his girlfriend.
Technical Stuff: Back in 1999 and 2000 I fell in love with a film called Kodak CN (Kodak Pro T400 CN Film). And like most of the things I’ve fallen in love with it killed my dog, ruptured my left testicle and burned down my house. K-CN was a B&W film Kodak created which could be developed as a colour film, so instead of waiting three weeks for a camera store to develop B&W film it could be done in thirty minutes. There were so many problems… which, at the time, I was willing to overlook because of how much I loved B&W photos, and how quickly I could get them in my hands. But, if I could do it over again, I’d use a TMAX or a TRI-X pure B&W film. I’d also not use the flash so much and I’d invest heavily in Research In Motion.
Their band actually got fairly successful on the Southern Ontario bar circuit. Including several shows at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern, where they once opened for English Beat. That’s Sue on the left… Sue was fantastically hot. I had a thing for Sue, but she was dating someone… whoops, damn, I think my dog just died again.
