Deena and The Denimoes

“I come from a very musical family and we thought it’d be cute to dress up in denim with all of our instruments.”

The Rainbow Connection

“My mom’s family band, circa 1980. My mom’s the one playing the “gut bucket” — my grandma’s face is superimposed over the whole show. In my opinion, the rainbow suspenders make the whole thing.”

House Band

“This is my family. Apparently, since my little sister didn’t have an instrument to play we just gave her a screwdriver to hold?”

The Space Lady And Son

“This is me and my Mom performing on the streets of San Francisco, circa 1994. As you can tell from this pic, I’ve been blessed with impeccable fashion sense my whole life:
✓ Cosby Sweater (before it was creepy)

✓ Knit Elf Stocking Hat

✓ Granny Glasses

✓ Star Trek Keychain Clipped To Belt Loop

Also for anyone curious, my mom is “The Space Lady,” a famous* street musican and “outsider icon.” Her Greatest Hits album was originally released on hand-made cassette tapes back in the 80’s. It was re-released by an actual record label a couple years ago and was named in Vice Magazine’s 50 Best Albums of 2014 and NME’s “101 Albums to Hear Before You Die”

*by street musican standards, anyway.”

String Theory

“I confess I’m the father in this picture. I was understandably reluctant to have my picture taken, but I must have relented on a particularly unfortunate day. The pornstache, the pudge, the restrained toddler and squashed-face baby, and the violin that nobody played….all a perfect family tableau.  I do not miss the 90s.”

Ring Around The Photo

“We were taking senior photos of our son and didn’t notice our daughter in the background, until I was editing his proofs.  She knows I am not very fond of the movie The Ring and thought it would be funny.”

“Me and the friend I built, playing the clarinet together.”

Afternoon Delight

“We were in our early 20s and thought this would be great if our boyfriends became musicians.”
