For the third year in a row, I made it a point to photograph a couple of the shows sponsored by the Noise for the Needy Festival. Catch images / blogs from 2008 & 2009. The Festival this year was supporting “Teen Feed” – as always another great organization that does so much good. It’s great seeing so many musicians, music lovers, and volunteers come out for the events hosted at various clubs all over the city. I volunteered this year for the two shows at Neumo’s 6/11 & 6/12…featuring The Album Leaf, Delta Spirit, Kinsky, Baths, Ezra Furman and the Harpoons, & Romany Rye.
As I as volunteering as a photographer this year for NFTN – one of my photo responsiblities was to take photos of the crowd…not always the easiest in some of the darker venues, particularly when not using a flash…but now and then something interesting occurs, the light is just right, or someone makes an interesting pose…
My favorite image from shows, is this one, all bathed in a bit of a green/cyan wash, w/the NFTN signage prominently in the background…if this isn’t representative of the event, I don’t know what is – though, given that I have no idea who the green dude is, it will never officially be, other than from this observatory editorial viewpoint…and hey, it’s not just the hulk that looks good in green;)
And I loved this one of the gal from Teen Feed – it definitely captures the spirit of the entire gig…
You can see all of my shots from the 2 gigs featured here –
Until next year!
