Friday night I had the chance to see In Good Nature playing their first Philly show. They were joined on this mini-tour with their label mates Pop punk band Real Talk. Real talk puts on a good set and I’d jump at the chance to see them play a space larger than a closet size basement. Now for anyone who has never heard of In Good Nature, They are a post-hardcore band from Mass who bring the energy. I had my first chance to shoot these guys a year ago in New Jersey and they are still one of my favorite photos to date. These guys put on a sick set with a mixture of “oooohs”and breakdowns and poppy beats. If they are swinging through your area I highly recommend getting out to their show. This time as I had the challenge of shooting them in a closet size basement with bare minimum lighting(Christmas lights hung from the rafters). I am so incredibly happy with the outcome of these shots. Here are both bands shots.
Monday night I had the pleasure of photographing a post-hardcore band from North Carolina called Harm. Let me start out by saying any band that brings their own lighting to a basement show is a win in my book. They energy is so amazing and they are straight up killer. The passion they put in their performance is top of the top. Just so happens they are friends with one of my favorite bands to photograph EMPTY which makes this a bit more special. Even with missing members of their band they still managed to bring the energy. On top of everything they are such amazingly nice people. Please take time out of your day to check out this killer band.
Here are the shots from monday of HARM.
