THEY CALL ME GRANDMA TECHNO

They call me Grandma Techno and take hundreds of pics of us together. They give me hugs and "kandi,” the beaded bracelets they make themselves. They clear a path so my mobility scooter and I can get up to the front of jam-packed stages, parting the crowds like the Red Sea. They help lift me out of my seat so I can stand to dance - while holding tight to the barricade - and boogie down beside me, grinning from ear-to-ear. They ask what I’m on and shake their heads in amazement when I answer “Nothing.” Over and over I hear, “It makes me so happy to see you here year after year. I want to be just like you when I grow up!”

 

I turned 74 in June 2016 and have not missed Detroit's electronic music festival since 2005. The photos you see here document all those years and, hopefully, will continue until I take my final breath.
