CMJ 2014 Preview

I wasn’t going to do a preview for CMJ this year. Then, I was only going to do one which included friends. When I wen through the very difficult to scroll through CMJ site, I realized there were quite a lot of bands for me to include so this is comprehensive. I put the list together from bands I could remember off hand so I apologize to anyone I missed.

So — take a look at these great musicians — then go to CMJ.com for the schedule and check out a show.

Bear In Heaven, Young Magic, WIFE at MHOW 9/17/14

I went back for once again for some more BiH at MHOW. I had figured I would want another chance to shoot them after Bowery since it’s so hard to get decent shots with the strobes and fog. It was, generally speaking, darker in MHOW for all 3 bands and I liked my Bowery shots better.

Bear In Heaven, Young Magic, WIFE at Bowery Ballroom 9/16/14

I really love Bear in Heaven’s music and they do not disappoint with their love show but it’s a bitch to make decent photos with all the strobe and fog. Young Magic has become a fine band since I saw them last and WIFE was a solid opener.

She Keeps Bees, Eddi Front, Raccoon Fighter at Cameo 8/21/14

Great sets from all 3 bands. I cannot believe it has taken me this long to shoot She Keeps Bees (so dark in Cameo though).
