Dates are hazy, but I believe I took this self-portrait in the mirrored facade of the venue that would shortly morph into Bowery Electric at some point in the summer of 2002. Was it open and called such at the time? I can't remember.
In any case, that's me below, markedly younger, slimmer, shorn of beard and sporting a vintage XTC shirt that I continue to cherish (thought it's slightly more form-fitting, these days). Across the street, the space that would later become the incongruously modern-looking (at the time) 326 Bowery is still just a fenced-in lot.
