BDO-The Mars Volta by s9 BDO-The Mars Volta by s9
One of the shots taken at the Big Day Out Festival ([link]) here in Perth. This was during The Mars Volta's set and they had to be one of my highlights... pure psychedelic improvisation... amazing onslaught of raw energy that was humbling to watch. I'm still wondering whether the drummer was in fact a robot. Was amusing to see a few people walking away going "They didnt play *insert track name* :( " Its not like it was a suprise that they didnt do the generic setlist type performance... shouldve known prior what to expect from their live performance/journey.

This is by far my favorite picture of Cedric. He looks almost god-like here. Favorite singer of all time. Thank you for taking this.

YES!

You are very amazing! I saw this picture forever ago on the mars volta board and saved it as the wallpaper on my cell phone for the last 2 years and now I finally know who took one of my favorite pictures ever.

It's so gorgeous, AND it's cedric!

Please keep being awesome!
