Goodbye Healthy Times Fun Club
Yesterday marked the last show of Healthy Times Fun Club.
This is a collection of photographs that I’ve taken at Healthy Times shows over the last few years. Taking photos with that horrific green background always posses a challenge and sometimes I feel like every shot looks exactly the same. But that’s just part of the charm of the place I suppose.
Despite that incessant green backdrop, Healthy Times has been a really fantastic spot for independent music in Seattle since it started way back in 2007 (originally in the bottom floor of a Wedgewood house). It’s been very important for me personally and undoubtedly many others over the years. We played our first Song Sparrow Research show with cello and glockenspiel at Healthy Times. And when Welcome to the Potato Famine was coming out, it was really the only venue where I had any interest in doing our record release show.
Well before I go on too long I just want to give a colossal thanks to Jake and Rebecca and Malia and all the other wonderful people who put so much time and effort into making the place what it was.
Now look for the back of your head in these photographs!
Back in Seattle after a month in Spain. If anyone ever feels uninspired or stale or not sure what to do with their lives in general, I highly recommend traveling. I took a lot of photos with my Pentax K1000 (which was gifted to me by Nash when he was moving from Seattle). Here are some of my personal favorites. They don’t necessarily represent everything I saw or everyone I met or spent time with, but they are simply photos that, to me, convey the feelings associated with this trip and traveling in general.
