Live Concert Photography: Summer Thunder at Union Pool 9/3/22: Joe Bataan

Summer Thunder is a free weekly showcase, presented by Academy Records and the folks at Union Pool that features up-and-coming nationally and internationally touring acts and DJs at the Williamsburg hotspot and music venue’s back patio.

Throughout the course of the annual showcase’s run, Union Pool and Academy Records have regularly hosted the legendary avant-garde jazz outfit, Sun Ra Arkestra, the New York-based boogaloo, Latin soul and salsa composer, songwriter and pianist Joe Bataan, and an eclectic array of artists across a wide span of genres and styles.

Last Saturday, Union Pool and Academy records hosted the legendary Joe Bataan. The show was originally scheduled back in July but a fire on the property understandably forced rescheduling of many of the bills they had on their books. (Thankfully, no one was hurt as a result of the fire. But it did displace some folks. And from what I understand, a resident is still missing their beloved cats.)

I was thrilled to be able to catch the legend again. Photos from the show are below.
