Live Concert Photography: Boys Noize at Kings’ Hall Avant Gardner 11/10/18
I’ve been adhering to social distancing guidelines and quarantines as much as humanly possible over the past close to seven months. And as you imagine over the course of this site’s decade history, I’ve managed to built up a deep archive of unedited photos.
Throughout much of this site’s history, I’ve balanced my work with JOVM with working full-time, corporate jobs in book publishing as an Editorial Assistant and Acquisitions Editor. So my daily life involved at least two hours of commuting back and forth a day; eight hours of work a day; then commuting to a show maybe three or four days a week depending on the week and what I had going on for work. Add actually working on the blog and maybe occasionally wanting a social and romantic life and sometimes there just wasn’t enough time in my day to do everything I needed or wanted to do. Because of COVID-19 lockdowns and limited options, I have nothing but time, so there are a lot of late night photo editing sessions.
Sadly, much of this work going through photos has managed to be an uncomfortable reminder of the some of the things I’ve loved so much — and won’t get back for the foreseeable future, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the fucking idiots, who won’t put something on their goddamn faces. So one more time, in case you didn’t understand: PUT SOMETHING OVER YOUR FUCKING FACE WHEN YOU GO OUTSIDE TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF COVID-19!
As I’ve been digging through my various hard drives and files, I came across this set of photos : JOVM mainstay Boys Noize at Kings’ Hall at Avant Gardner in November 2018. Of course, going through these photos reminded me of how much I miss going to night clubs and catching dope DJs do their thing live. So, if you’re out in public: PUT A COVERING OVER YOUR FUCKING FACE WHENEVER YOU’RE IN PUBLIC AND CAN’T SOCIALLY DISTANCE — AND WASH YOUR GODDAMN HANDS, YOU FUCKING SELFISH PRICKS!
