A Giant Dog | Pleasure Venom | Dregs @ Hotel Vegas

Photographer Levy Castleberry

After a year and a half of silence, Hotel Vegas brought live shows back in the dramatic wild fashion we have come to expect from them. Playing to a sold-out crowd, A Giant Dog, Pleasure Venom, and Dregs gave Austin the kick in the chest it needed. Here at Anon, we have been a fan of the photography of Levy Castleberry for quite some time. We are excited to have our inaugural feature of his work being with this show; it all the more helps hit home the feeling that we as a community are getting back to championing life as a collective. It has been a hell of a road getting here but life is burning beautifully again. What a positive experience climbing out of the dark unknown, lifting and leaning on each other with a whole new sense of meaning underscoring the moment. We may not say it enough—words never could do our feelings justice—but know that getting to be a part of this with all of you fills us with an electrifying sense of belonging. A love so tangibly alive it tucks us to sleep smiling at night. This set of photographs is an ideal expression of how that love feels.
