Taking shots of those who turn their backs on me throughout NYC

For our seventh walk around town we have all kinds of music acts, as well as a bit of art and more. The first row starts off with a faded hand-painted statement that simply reads: “I can’t afford patches,” followed by a small Misfits’ Fiend Club patch, and ending on another hand-painted work, this time of a young Roky Erickson of 13th Floor Elevators, worn and drawn by a local sixty-five-year-old fan. Row two has Michigan/Florida band Sleeping With Sirens, a hand-painted Corrosion Of Conformity vest the wearer says dates from 1987, and a jacket of the Long Island chapter of Road Reapers Motorcycle Club. The final row contains a huge Judas Priest patch, one for Oakland, Calif. doom act Noothgrush, and wrapping it up with a nice Black Sabbath top and bottom rocker with a skull placed in between.
