Dilvie's Diary - March 23rd, 2008
Going to have an Easter meal with my mother in law this evening. I welcome the relaxation. I've been working too much lately. For example: Yesterday I was bombarded by emails and blog comments over a controversial post to my blog; trying to keep my head above water and make sure that my important work-related stuff wasn't getting lost in the sudden and unexpected tidal wave of attention.
Then I had to catch a short nap and head out to photograph a local radio dj in the studio for his winning feature in The City Weekly's Best of Utah issue. Sorry, can't say who, or what he won yet!
After that I was off to the rave ("1") to photograph a killer lineup -- incredible! Best display of talent I've seen all year, and I'm including the phenomenal Future Sound of Breaks Tour and the Paul Oakenfold show in that. I haven't seen such an amazing talent lineup since a human beat box went up against two of Utah's best turntablists at Man vs Machine back in December.
"1" was a PHENOMENAL SHOW! -- just one problem -- the promotions fell short and the crowd was very thin. It's a shame so many people missed out on such a great event. Hopefully there will be a lot fewer flops like that when the VIP Club promotions get into full swing. If you want to know what's going on in the SLC EDM (Electronic Dance Music) scene and have your chance to win free VIP tickets to all the best events - along with a lot of other great prizes, sign up now. If you're already a member, forward this to your friends!
This week I have a few more shoots for City Weekly (watch for them in the Best of Utah issue, April 3rd! I'm giving away two free tickets to a lucky VIP Club member for Nu Skool 3 (Solid UNDA Ground), interviewing applicants for my college credit internship program and compiling photos for an upcoming nightlife photography exhibit. Watch this space. If you think it sounds like I'm doing some cool things now -- you ain't seen nothin' yet... just wait until I tell you about the parties that are still under wraps!
