Slowness formed in San Francisco in 2008. Geoffrey Scott and Julie Lynn soon joined with producer Monte Vallier (Weekend, Young Prisms, Tommy Guerrero).

Live Photos: Blouse at Fitzgeralds in Houston TX, April 25th, 2012.

You know how I roll - the gazey effect on live photos, every time.

Blouse was absolutely lovely live; I enjoyed it thoroughly. I only snapped a handful of photos (I was busy! Plus, they didn't move around too much. Not that they needed to. But, you get it ... You do get it, right?) and you can find them below.


Blouse. Fitzgerald's. Houston, TX. April 25th, 2012.
