Live Concert Photography: Jorge Elbrecht with CMON and Scott Gilmore at Baby’s All Right 11/20/18

I’ve been adhering to social distancing guidelines and self-quarantine as much as possible over the past 90 some odd days for the most part: I’ve gone out for the occasional walk to get fresh air and exercise, to run household errands and for my mom’s medical appointments. Beyond that life has ben rather lonely and monotonous. There’s the occasional Zoom happy hour or FaceTime thing but generally there’s been social media — and my work. What else is there to really do, really?

Unsurprisingly, over the course of this site’s ten year history, I’ve managed to compile and develop a deep archive of unedited photos. As I’ve mentioned throughout this site’s history, much of my work with JOVM has coincided with working full-time, corporate jobs in book publishing as an Editorial Assistant and Acquisitions Editor. And if you add commuting back and forth to work and shows, listening to and writing about music, editing photos, going through my correspondence and even occasionally having a romantic and social life to my day, there sometimes just wasn’t enough time in my day to sleep or daydream or just do anything else.

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 that I’ve once had — and won’t get back for the foreseeable future, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

2018 begun a rather weird period that has continued onto this hellish year but, towards the end of that year, I caught acclaimed singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and Violens mastermind Jorge Elbrecht with now-defunct indie act CMON and Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Scott Gilmore at Baby’s All Right. Check out photos from that show below.
