The moment I started the Venice Project, I have waited for a true artist to come about and show themselves to me. Let me in on this special area and let me promote you so you can make it. This band, needs no promoting, needs no introduction, for they are the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
It was a lonely Saturday; not much to do…for I had just moved here. I was on Facebook and saw that my roommate posted on his status that they were playing across from muscle beach at 530…it was 4. I grabbed my lens off we went. Bicycle, check; 300mm lens check, 50 polarized check, off we go.
The good thing is…I live a mile from where they were filming. I biked to Muscle Beach…camera in hand…smiling as I saw the large crane. Oh lala…I saw mic stands on a roof. I am here. At this point I am probably the only one in Venice knowing this show is going to happen; except for the groupie’s waving at the friends that passed by. Grinning the devious grin as they thought they would fuck the famous…who knows. Memory Faded. Music Played. Camera Snapped. Snapped Some More. This Angle Sucks. Too Many People…This is what came out of chaos that is a music video in the middle of Venice Beach by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
