Oh, Conor Oberst

Hey hey!

Last spotted together at Alex Chui's art show in Anaheim, H.Davies and yours truly reunited once again last Saturday for the Sunset Junction Street Fair in Silverlake. Was it totally fabulous and filled to the gills with celebrities? Hell ya!!

Picture list of the stars:

Nicole Sullivan

Kid (from Kid n Play)

and an Eric Wareheim look-alike (not the actor/director pictured above, but very close in resemblance.)

Of course, as much as everyone delights in star gazing among the grill smoke of bacon-wrapped hotdogs (an L.A. staple, unfortunately), the definitive reason for our visit (read: Hyo's visit) was Conor Oberst. Aka, Mr. Davies.

I managed to take foto of Conor on stage. The darkness suits his brooding personality, I think.

On our way out the gates, and in keeping with the rather nefarious lighting & lustful wants of Ms. Davies, our attentions were caught by a very intriguing performance given by a puppet and his puppeteer.

Gots the melodrama fever.

Bottom Line: Unless you're excited about the scheduled bands, the $20 entry price is too steep for boredom you will endure. Skip out next year. The booths were uninspiring, sans counting Am Appy's. They were giving away tank tops and t-shirts that read "Legalize Gay". Straight up.
