Congrats on the gig BTW. It's always nice to see contemporary works being performed ;)
Respectable? Never! Young? Always, at heart! And I struggled with how I was going to punk out. I don't have any stereotypical punk clothing, really, and the bald spot directly atop the back of my head ruled out any mohawking or spiking of hair (nothing says punk less than a bald spot). So it was obvious I needed to shave it to the scalp. Not pictured in this shot is how I've been drawing stuff on the side of my head with an eyeliner pencil every show -- a lightning bolt, a skull-and-bones, different every night so far.
My wife happened to be telling me I needed to bin this old ratty white t-shirt at the same time I was wracking my brains for what to wear. A Sharpie attack later, and it's become a favorite among the cast and crew. Several want their own copies for after the show. I figure I'll have a Sharpie at the closing week and the after party for signatures, then I'll frame the whole thing in my home office.
Thanks for the congrats, a very fine time being had. I think some bootleg video is going to surface ere long. Saturday night's show was a complete killer, and I noticed our Criminologist had a Flip camera nestled near his chair onstage...
