I think it's time for me to invest in a hat...
The many wooden hat forms to create these amazing hats
It was amazing learning how these hats were made!
On these wooden forms, they place the hats on top, let it dry, and add accessories!
Here, a hat is being worked into a masterpiece
Yeah, I was digging this hat

The Village Voice Siren Music Festival 2010: In a flash

Okay guys, I PROMISED to update you guys on what went down at the Siren Fest!
&  here are the highlights and photos (courtesy of Klatoba King:)

I absolutely loved all the bands. It was great to see a free concert filled with great talent from underground bands. We all know the Vans Warped tour was on the same day, but I picked right.
One of my first concerts and my first siren fest, It was a blast. I loved supporting smaller known bands because quite frankly, we are all talented. It's just that some people have to work a little bit harder to become well known. And what I always tell smaller bands, like how I told Dom, remember us little people-when you become so widely known, you're playing at Madison Square Garden and the Nokia theatre, where the tickets take me weeks to save up for- who supported you from the beginning.
Because your fans are who will always be there.
But anyway, where was I?
I loved the connections to the rhythms with complete strangers who came here and love what they're hearing. It's a feeling so amazing, I can only describe it so poorly. When a crowd of moving bodies move in sync to the vibrating sounds from the speakers, everyone just...connects. I loved the feeling of an enthusiastic crowd. Music makes everything a thousand times more exciting.
And I was glad to be a part of the unforgettable excitement.

Thanks to Dionys and Klatoba for attending with me!

This Band was hot.
