High on the Hog clips
The video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMXSruSbDGA&feature=channel_page) above has some clips from High on the Hog parties in the early-1980s. They are sandwiched between shots of the runaway-train of a last day of the 538 Club (in the spring of 1983), a rock 'n' roll venue. A spray-can art riot is documented.
High on the Hog was thrown down in Libby Hill Park for decades on the second Saturday of October. The last was in 2006.
This is all Super 8 footage I shot in what now seems like another life. The music has been borrowed from a fellow cross-hatching cartoonist who is coming to town later this month.
