These Women are Thieves

From the recent Thievery Corporation run at the 9:30 Club:  Natalia Clavier (top) and LouLou Ghelichkhani (below).   And, yes, that’s the dancing metronome Hash on the right in both.   Natalia Clavier - Thievery Corporation LouLou Ghelichkhani - Thievery Corporation at the 9:30 Club

Thievery Corporation – Cutting to the Chase …. (Hash)

As I mentioned here, Thievery Corporation recently played three sold-out nights at the 9:30 Club – a reprise of last year’s run that resulted in a photo book.  Cutting to the chase, this is (bass guitar) Ashish (“Hash”) Vyas on all three nights building up to a final encore….

The Archives at The Howard

In the run-up to their album release next month, The Archives opened for Ziggy Marley last night at historic Howard Theatre.   Although I had been there for Chuck Brown’s viewing, this was the first time I’ve really shot there – great venue for musicians, fans, and photographers (!).

Band Portrait: The Archives

The Archives is an old-school, serious Reggae band with an album that will be released soon by ESL Music.

Good band portraits are as varied as other types of photography – there are no hard and fast rules (as Jay Dickman often says, “It depends!”).  I think this one works reasonably well because the band looks interesting and serious, and the background has character but isn’t distracting or modern.   The color version was good, but black and white is more old-school.
