Last week I was asked by my friend David Kemper to photograph his band MoonRunner as they played at the Blue Note. Also playing were local bands Richard The Lionhearted, Derek Nelson, and Al Holladay and the Lucky Stars. 'Twas a great show. I love going to local shows so much exactly because they tend to be smaller, the audience all know one another, the Blue Note crew are chilled out (so I get to go where ever I want), and they show how we communally work at our own culture. I am so glad to have been and continue to be a participant in the local music tradition.
