If you’re ever looking for Orlando Welsh, just look for his easy-to-spot hair—and, yes, it’s real. I’ve personally been able to find him in crowds at events from Coachella to the Vans Warped Tour, where he’s been in attendance as a professional photographer. Welsh is also a local musician, and has been in Metroid, Mingtran and Break Dance Vietnam. He now has a project with Metroid bandmate Ryan Jovian called High Fantasy (sometimes stylized as…
