Live Concert Photography: Yeasayer with Shana Falana at Rough Trade 4/17/19
I’ve been adhering to social distancing guidelines and to self-quarantining over the past 64 days or so — and as you can imagine, although at times, it’s been lonely and monotonous, I’ve managed to spend quite a bit of time throwing myself into work. Unsurprisingly, over the course of this site’s ten year history, I’ve managed to compile and develop a deep archive of unedited photos. (Much of my work with JOVM has coincided with working full-time, corporate jobs in book publishing. And frankly, sometimes there just wasn’t enough time in my day to commute back and forth to work, go to shows, write or 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.
Last year, I caught the acclaimed Brooklyn-based experimental rock Yeasayer with JOVM mainstay Shana Falana at Rough Trade. Check out photos from the show — one of the last Yeasayer shows they played before their split-up below.
