Voltage: Fashion Amplified 2008 in retrospect

Voltage: Fashion Amplified 2008 slid into the past on Wednesday, April 16th, leaving in its wake great memories, lots of warm fuzzies, a ton of press, and thousands upon thousands of fantastic new photos (photos and more photos) by some of the best live show photographers in the Twin Cities. As a committee member for each Voltage show since it was founded in 2004, this year’s show was so well organized I was able to to actually watch a good chunk of it for a change. More than ever, I have come to appreciate the thrill experienced not only the participants (bands, designers and models alike), but also audience, press and the photographers who document the show year after year.

This year, HowWasTheShow has chosen to present all six photo slideshows by BeeTour’s Sara Montour part of our Voltage retrospective. Sara captured everything from the zaniness of openers Zibra Zibra, to the model-baiting antics of MC/VL.

Sara’s work is also posted to her blog at
