This was a really fun CMJ for me. Shot 59 bands (no repeats) — actually saw 60 but was too thirsty to get some shots of one…. So great to see so many friends — special shout out to my CMJ buddy, Amanda Hatfield – check out her photos on Brooklyn Vegan.
As always, many thanks to Dave Park at Prefix for letting me shoot this (again).
