Lightning Bolt @ Khon's Rooftop

I’ve been meaning to get something up from the hot-as-hell rooftop Lightning Bolt show that took place at Khon’s a while back, a newer music venue in Midtown Houston, but it’s taken me this long. The show was noisy and the attendees were packed in like sardines as close to the thrashing two-some as they could possibly be. I secured my camera strap around my wrist, jumped into the pit and fortunately found a spot in between guitarist Brian Gibson and his stack of amps. Not the best place to take in the noisiest show I’ve been to in a while, but at least I could take some picture while not being raped by a pack of sweaty, smelly hipsters. As I snapped away, the duo, which also includes Brian Chippendale on drums and distorted vocals, eagerly fought off the crowd while destroying their brand of noise rock.

After escaping the mess, I enjoyed the show from the back of the crowd in the breeze of the humid Houston summer night with a cold Bombshell Blonde in each hand. I was dripping in sweat, but it didn’t matter because everyone else was too. It was a new experience for many in attendance, as Khon’s hasn’t been open for that long, and it was on a freaking rooftop with a perfect view of Downtown. I hope that Khon’s keeps having these rooftop musical events, but later in the year please, when it’s not 95 degrees at 11 pm.

As I mentioned, I happened to take a few pictures, even with sweat constantly dripping in my eyes. Check them all out after the jump.
