Laura Austin Videograss Premiere

Last weekend was a wild one. I made the trek up to Oregon for the premieres of Videograss’ new movie “Bon Voyage” at Mt. Hood and another in Portland.The weekend entailed…stage diving, broken furniture, lots of alcohol, block parties, cops, dancing, mind blowing snowboarding, and my camera with evidence of most of this disappearing at the end of it all.
