We had no idea what to expect when Glynn our booking and production genius came in and said, "How about we have Girl in a Coma come in a do a Transistor 6 Session?". I knew Girl in a Coma from my friends around town and also from the time they played Waterloo Records and had a line around the block. Calling them Local Hero's would be an understatement. We all said sure let's do it, they had a natural love for analog film as seen in their video for "Smart" - http://bit.ly/NaQ7cs
We really had no idea the kind of crowd that would surface for an unannounced surprise weekday gig at Frank http://bit.ly/MYTxx1 but we can say that it was the largest turnout we had to date. There was a line out the door and around the block and when Jenn, Nina and Phanie hit the stage you couldn'.t help but feel the connection with everyone singing the words to all the songs. We even got an amazing rendition of "Walking After Midnight" which you can hear as a bonus on the Girl In A Coma T6 Facebook page we created here: http://on.fb.me/MBMSge
This was a lot of fun that our friend Cameron who works at the Austin Lomography Store http://bit.ly/MBNzGk had all to himself as we were running around making sure a riot didn't take place due to the mass of people that were trying to get in. Cameron shot these pictures in the back room at Frank and from the looks of the shots it would seem he had the best time! Check out the gear we used and if you have questions about shots you can direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will feature some of them on our Facebook pages with answers. Please be specific about the photo in question and we will try to get back to you.
