So proud of my friends and boyfriend in Loudness War. LW released their 3rd album The Miser this past month with Transylvania Music Company. It was their first time recording with someone besides themselves and first time getting something pressed on vinyl! To celebrate the release, we threw a record release party at The Parlor and decorated the place to match the cover. Other BR darlings, Hydra Plane, opened the show. Night of psych, fusion and heavy fuzz. It was fun. When you get the chance, check out these two bands around town. See photos from the Record Release Party below....
The Parlor was so great for being down to let us go in there and decorate it. We had 2 cars almost completely filled with any greenery we could get our hands on. Turned out sick.
Honestly, it's been a blast photographing them for this long and to see them release yet another collection of music. It's admirable how much they just keep going. You'd be crazy to think they're not sitting on so much more.
One of the best parts are the crowds full of friends and strangers who keep coming back and learn the words. Don't stop showing up.
Keep supporting local music. Buy yourself a drink. Have a good day.
I just got back from a road trip to L.A. where I went to In The Red's 25th Anniversary showcase. After seeing them at the Echo, Zig Zags toured to New Orleans and Loudness War got the chance to open for them at one of my favorite venues- Siberia in New Orleans. I bought this lomography film before our road trip just for fun and I love what it did while shooting in dark settings. This orange lighting is amazing. Made the choice to scan beyond the frame in these. Shoot film. Shoot film. Shoot film.
Blog post with pictures from L.A. coming soon. Been steadily developing, cleaning, scanning, editing...
I photographed Blues Fest last weekend for local music blog JIVE FLAMINGO. I always photograph Loudness War and had the opportunity to shoot these pals for their entire set. As always, I tag along my 35mm! This is what happened... including portraits.
Always give the first shot to your best friend...
