RAW Connecticut's Expressions

2:13:00 PM

I think it is pretty safe to say that the all new RAW Connecticut show was a success. The New Haven Russian Lady, the new location of the Connecticut shows, was packed to the gills! There was a very different feel to this event then it's predecessor RAW Hartford. There were more artisans represented in this event. There was a more organized and uniform look. In this production you could feel the influence and personality of it's new director Jess Brey. With RAW Hartford I always felt like I was entering a rock concert type of event. It always felt very edgy and punk rock. RAW Connecticut felt more like entering a stage production. Slightly more refined, but still all about the artist.

I left the event early, having worked all day and in desperate need of food and bed. As we left Matt and I noticed a line going down the block of people eager to get in and see what RAW Connecticut had to offer. I had to smile. They were in for a treat. As you are about to see ;)

Ok I admit I am biased on my love for this one! I am a serious nerd for the Dark Side.

This one also rocked my socks right off! I love pin up girls and I love  sugar skulls.
