Documenting bands in their rehearsal spaces...the places most people never see or think about when they go to see a show or hear a favorite song.

SICK WEAPONS 11/08/2012

When I found out that Sick Weapons were going to be playing a one-off show at the U+NFestival (at the Metro Gallery this past weekend), i was totally stoked. They are definitely one of my favorite bands to come out of Baltimore in the past few years, and with a long awaited record being released the same night, there was even more of a reason to get excited. Ellie, Peter, Jesse, Dan and Sean let me sit in on the last practice(ever?) before their show Friday night at the fest. These are some shots from that evening. I think they were having fun….

BALKAN FALCON

Balkan Falcon are one of my favorite new bands in Baltimore. Matt Dahl, Greg Hamilton, and Steve Glickman have played music together for years, but this new project is the first time they have teamed up for a three-piece band. They write quirky, catchy, hooky… just all-around cool songs. I photographed them at their practice space on 26th Street in Baltimore on a Wednesday evening in August 2012.
