Great weekend of music at this year’s Northside Festival. Here’s one shot of each band and my high and low-lights.
Seeing Sharon Van Etten play for 5000 people.
Spending some time with the B Brux, Syd, Max and Matt (especially Matt who I hung out with most of the day at McCarren on Saturday).
Seeing Project Jenny Project Jan on Sunday, I had forgotten how much fun it is to photograph Jeremy.
St. Cecilia’s Church – amazing venue for sound and the photos all look good.
The double rainbow after the downpour on Friday night at McCarren and the rain stopped just before we had to shoot.
The bouncer at Public Assembly that kept me safe from the mosh pit during the Iceage show (I love him). There were people all over Ryan Muir as he shot (he can take it though).
Taking 4 trains home every night and 4 on the way on Saturday and Sunday. The MTA hates me.
Getting in trouble in St. Cecilia’s for using a flash that I didn’t have (it was another girl). Incidentally, no one ever said a word to her about it…
The downpour prior to the Beirut show – soaked is not fun (but it was kinda funny).
Not being able to stand-up anymore and missing Twin Sister at MHOW.
Jessica Amaya for being a good shooting buddy, giving me rain gear for my camea and driving me to Public Assembly after the Beirut show.
Amanda Hatfield, in addition to being one of the hardest working togs out there right now, she provided some comic relief in the rain and made a bee line path in the crowd to shoot Aaron Desser onstage with Sharon Van Etten (I followed her….).
Always good to see Dan (NYC Taper). PopTarts Sucked Toasted, Battering Room, A Heart Is A Spade, Punk Photo, I Rock I Roll, StereoactiveNYC, Ryspace, and Paper Garden Records. Nice bumping into Oberhofer, Skippy, Patrick and so many from the Fort Useless gang.
Many, many thanks to PrefixMag.com for the assignment.
