mardi gras @ neurolux: red light variety show

boise’s red light variety show performing downtown at neurolux on fat tuesday. the cover of this month’s diversity magazine features a photo i shot of the group performing at curb cup last summer, and the woman in the photo (anne) said she loved it and that she would comp my ticket if i came and took some more. unfortunately i severely sprained my toe earlier the day of the performance, and was not in the best mood, but i hobbled in there anyway and got some good photos.

it seemed like there were more photographers than audience members. the extra weird thing, though, was that everyone brought their huge, expensive penises (i mean, lenses...) and FLASHES. why the fuck would you use flash when the available light is so cool? and it is literally impossible to get a decent UV/blacklight shot with a flash...anyway, these guys all looked very serious and professional shooting, and i’m sure they impressed each other, but i would be willing to bet their photos don’t look so great.
