Sunday night’s NARM gathering at the Hilton Hotel in Chicago was magical. Not magical like eating mushrooms or seeing elves dance in the moonlight. More like the spiritual vibes conjured from a gaggle of pasty record store employees smoking pot and drinking warm beer in an unventilated ballroom. We did our best to elevate the mood with a Numero Group DJ set. Black Wolf from Kings Go Forth engaged all three women in attendance with some barely legal gyrations during the bands set. But in the end it was the camaraderie of folks on the front lines of the music business war that ultimately made the evening memorable. That and knowing we had the good sense to TiVo the latest episode of Treme before heading out.
JR managed to capture some of this magic on his iPhone. Boy do those things suck for taking pictures.
