The Show: ZEROFEST 2014, October 2–5.
Thus concludes the inaugural ZeroFest. What a weekend! You guys are awesome. Never underestimate just how many incredibly creative and talented and positive people there are around you all the time, kicking ass and making great art. Rest assured we're already planning the next one. We were totally prepared to learn from our mistakes, and then everything went perfectly at every moment.
Except the police action at Bermuda Triangle, of course. That was unfortunate, and we apologize to Vulture Shit, who didn't get to play, and their friends, who didn't get to see them. We also apologize to the righteously unapologetic Stephanie Browne of Bermuda Triangle, who hosted one of the best shows we've ever seen and handled those cops like a pro.
Thanks to everyone who helped organize ZeroFest, the twenty-plus bands that played (that's like eighty individual musicians!), everyone at the excellent venues that hosted us, and everyone who came out or showed support.
In fact, this seems like the perfect opportunity to introduce you all to Bettina Warshaw, who's been behind the scenes of all of this, running our social media game and basically making sure you knew when and where to be and who was going to be on stage. She's officially a part of the Square Zeros family now, and her involvement in ZeroFest was absolutely indispensable. Here she is, slugging drums for The Rizzos, literally embodying everything we do.
Without further ado, we've got four nights of craziness to document. And these are just our personal photos; expect more photos from our homeys who are better behind the lens. And hey — if you're good with a camera and ever want to help us out at one of our shows, you know where to find us at squarezeros(at)gmail(dot)com.
