Live Concert Photography: The Shondes with Slingshot Dakota and Permanent Wave at Shea Stadium 9/17/16

Currently comprised of founding duo Louisa Solomon (vocals, bass) and Elijah Olberman (violin, vocals) along with newest members Courtney Robbins (guitar) and Alex Smith (drums), the Brooklyn-based punk rock quartet The Shondes have developed a reputation for an aesthetic and sound that possess elements of riot grrl/feminist punk, rock, pop and Klezmer, earnest, heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics based around Solomon’s personal experiences and the band members’ Judaism and political beliefs paired around rousingly anthemic hooks — and for a passionate live show with the brassy Solomon at the lead. The band has been touring to support their recently released, gorgeous, swooning and earnest, fifth full-length effort, Brighton and tour included their triumphant album release show at Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s Shea Stadium. Check out photos from the show.

Opening the evening was the Brooklyn-based trio Permanent Wave. Comprised of Jessica Jurgens (bass, vocals), Chicago Figueroa (guitar, vocals) and Tre D’Amborcia (drums) that specialize in a sound that possesses elements of post-punk, surf rock and disco to craft material that’s punchy and yet dance floor-friendly.
