Noise for the Needy has been raising money via this awesome local festival for 10 years. A great run, for many great causes along the way. So many great bands, great people, and a great event. I am so happy to have captured it via images for the last 7 years, since 2008. It’s been an honor to have photographed 7 festivals, 15 shows altogether, and too many bands to count. It’s been a special thing for me. Even after I stopped shooting music regularly in early 2012, I kept coming out for this event. For me it was that perfect confluence of art, creativity, and community coming together.
Given the finale, I can’t help but bring back some of my favorite images from years past.
I have loved shooting this festival…and I will miss it and all that it represents. I am so happy I got to be even a small part of it, capturing the moments; and a bit sad it’s all over.
But alas, it’s all in the photos…so enjoy this last stand, live from the Tractor Tavern(ok, 2weeks later, but eh?!)…
