It has been about a month since The Dreary Coast finished its run, and I’m still not entirely sure if it happened. Every time I describe it to people it sounds like I’m explaining some weird dream I had:
Well, I was in hell, but it was also sort of Brooklyn? And a bunch of my friends were there and we were in the basement of this church, because we were demons and we had to put on a play. And then I was driving this boat with all these people staring at me and we saw this funeral that happened right next to a Whole Foods.
Anyway, people who are way better writers, photographers, and videographers have already summed up the experience much better than I ever could. So please look through the press below to get a glimpse into The Dreary Coast.
