For the 4th year in a row, this past June, I photographed the Noise for the Needy festival & events – a great local benefit organization for sure. Whether you can work a table, sing (play), attend as a fan & buy drinks(seriously! lol – a good time is always had), or photograph, its a great set of events to be a part of.
I don’t know if the images are like all the other music images or if they are special because of what the community is coming together to do? Regardless – it’s a beautiful thing. This year, the festival proceeds benefit Real Change – something if you walk around downtown Seattle, you should be well familiar with.
This year – I covered Metal Night (yeah, you heard me) and ironically enough, the next night I covered happened to be dance music – so 2 ends of the spectrum – and no “singer songwriter” bits to be seen at either…not that people didn’t write their music, but you know what I mean…I also captured images from last March’s kickoff event – which was a bit of swirling lights, dancers, electronic beats and fun.
