Last Friday, we threw a little kickoff soirée for Issue 45 with our current cover star Bill Callahan at the well-appointed Paris Bar in New York's National Arts Club. After clinking Bud Selects with its distinguished members we sat down for an hour plus of Callahan's greatest livened by some drummer and a piano player (Ed. Jim White is the best drummer alive and Joanna Newsom is an earthbound angel.) We still have not fully absorbed the awesomeness of it all, but these photos help. Check after the jump for more of Bill, Joanna and Jim as well as the kids, the legends (DJ's Wildman and Boykins) and Lou and Laurie and remember to download the F45 PDF and DJ-mixed podcast while you're at it.
