How many people does it take to make a dotmatrix project?


from the ceiling

A lot. Here’s just a glimpse inside the minds behind one element of the dotmatrix project: film. A small slew of the crew showed up late last night to edit video footage from last month’s show. Pictured here is just a portion of the film crew.

Unseen is photographer Stephen Charles, who is behind the camera here at dotmatrix hq on Elm Street. Also unseen are the musicians, Green Burro bartenders, sound engineers, photographers, volunteers, and believers in the project whose ideas are still unseen, but slowly unfolding.

This crew started at 8 pm last night and stayed until just after midnight.

A whole bunch of Buster Dillys


Sunday afternoon at the Pour House for the Original Music Showcase. Seemed like a perfect opportunity to get a few Buster Dillys on stage. So on the last song, Deep Ellum Blues, I watched as one-by-one folks jumped up, grabbed their gear, and wailed.

At the end, when everybody got real quiet, then kicked up, I thought I’d about sail off that stage and never come back again.

There is no greater feeling than instantaneous improvisation and collaboration. Original Music is back in Greensboro.
