Spotlight

One more from Hollerpalooza. The music for this little street festival was continuous - and fantastic. Here's the last act of the night - local favorite Cruz Contreras delights the crowd with a spirited blend of country and bluegrass music. I took a lot of photos of the band, but I like this one the best because of the lighting. Maybe he's about to ascend in a tractor beam to the Mothership.

This looks like so much fun, Mx. Knox. One of the things I miss most about Austin -- where I grew up -- is the live music EVERYWHERE. There are so many festivals and a zillion musical venues with so many local bands that are really good. This shot reminds me of a lot of great memories.

I still love the name "hollerpalozza." That's too great.

Enough Star Trek for you. I absolutely love live music. You nailed him in the spotlight, homing beam.

Ditto from me - SPOTLIGHT is just right in the pic & title.
