I photographed the 15th Annual Oak Bluffs School Talent Show tonight (well, the second half, at least). It started with a literal bang, as six kids on six drum sets joined their music teacher (on guitar) and friend (on bass) for a wicked awesome run-through of Smoke on the Water, Fire, and Wipeout. I didn’t have a tripod (or knowledge that it was about to happen), or I would have recorded video. So good!
This was my favorite non-performance moment, though. The OB School, like all of the other town schools here, is K-8; there’s no separate middle school. And the little girl was so excited about watching an Eighth Grader (gasp!) perform.
