John Doe and the Orbs


John Doe, co-founder the of LA punk band, X, sang to a full house at the Bisbee Royale last night after Michael Blake’s talk about writing Dances with Wolves.

The orbs were as numerous as the audience who gathered to hear John Doe’s acoustic country-folk-punk songs of love and anguish.

The orbs hovered intently to not miss a word from John Doe, an actor as well as musician, who has appeared in the TV show Roswell, and movies Road House, Great Balls of Fire, and Boogie Nights, to give you a selection of his acting career.

One thing I’ve noticed about orbs is they really light up for performers who can belt out at song. Although I presume their ability to listen closely as a descriptive device, they do seem to respond to strong vibrations.

Sometimes the flash doesn’t go off and the orbs remain invisible. But the show does go on thanks to John Doe who still performs with the bands X, and The Knitters, writing and co-writing songs that earned Record of the Year from Rolling Stone for X’s Wild Gift.

For those of you who are new to this blog or would like to revisit the explanation as to what orbs are, this might be of help:


About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.
