The amazing band Laura Stevenson and the Cans played a show at The Trunkspace this past Monday. I was running late getting there so my mom ended up taking me and my bike, which actually made me early. I got a chance to talk to Laura for a little bit and she is super nice. I also got a chance to talk to a couple others after the show and they are going to be glad to get back to New York. They have been on tour for five months, and I can’t even imagine that.
The first band to play was Little Ships, and of course they announced themselves by saying, “We are Little Ships”. I had to laugh, and so did a few others. Brian went back to the mike to make it known they were not little turds. The band consists of just a guitar and cello, which make them another band to show to my little brother.
Anyhow, I promised Carlos I would get the photo of him playing banjo for Laura Stevenson and the Cans up this weekend, which made me think I should try to get all of the photos up today… that won’t happen, so here are the two I do have ready…
I really like how the photo of Carlos came out… seriously awesome. By the way Carlos, if you want the non edited version, just let me know and I can send it over. I just thought this one looked immensely more cool.
I really like this photo of Laura. Yes, I know this look is cliche for some, but it really makes a photo feel more like a memory. Also, it hides some of the lameness of the original photo. I am only shooting from a point and shoot while down here, so need to find some way to compensate for no external lighting or ability to change the depth of field.
