DECEMBER 14 2016

Whether or not this was a chilly December evening, I'll never fully remember, as I quickly basked in the warmth of the chaos of the family-style-reunion that blossomed as Together Pangea (LA) and Twin Peaks (Chicago) rolled into Nashville's Exit-In that afternoon. Bands, photographers, and friends alike, all together in one place - including members of White Reaper, NE-HI, Cage the Elephant, Daddy Issues, and Chrome Pony, and photographers CJ Harvey, Kelsey Reckling, Jesse Fox, (and myself!), all present, documenting throughout the night. One truly never to be forgotten.

Temples, Live at Grimey's for Original Fuzz by Emily Quirk

Temples

Temples

Back in February, Temples was days away from the release of their new album Volcano when they made a pit-stop in Nashville to play an in-store performance at Grimey's Records as part of promo for the record. We at Original Fuzz were able to grab a few minutes of an interview with them, and photos from the show are here

And a few more...

The Black Angels and A Place To Bury Strangers by Emily Quirk

A Place To Bury Strangers

A Place To Bury Strangers

On April 26, A Place To Bury Strangers and The Black Angels kicked off the Death March Tour together in Nashville at The Basement East, surrounding the release of The Black Angels' new album Death Song. It was a night of psychedelia with explosive, swooning, and haunting guitars, plus a three hour light show of lasers, projections, and strobes, both beautiful and at times seizure-inducing. I'm still seeing the rainbows of color bouncing through the thickest walls of fog.

My photos from the show are in the current issue of Original Fuzz magazine 👁 here ! 👁

HI & NE-HI by Emily Quirk

Hello, hello, to all! It's been a while. Life's been busy, full, and fast-paced in the realm that exists beyond this screen. Where here it may appear that I've been absent, I assure you that's not how I've been living.

I'm preparing to share with you all I've been working on these past ~8 months. Multiple tours across the United States, studio and day shoots with artists, the current state of political activism, visual work for Original Fuzz, a week of South By Southwest, many, many shows back home in Nashville, TN (where I'm located once again), and so much more. 

Tonight, I want to bring it back to the beginning of this year, in January, with Ne-Hi from Chicago, Illinois, when they rolled through Nashville to play The High Watt. Tonight, they'll be doing this once again, and I hope you'll join me there! 8pm, with FACS and Date Night 

and more to come soon!

Big Freedia for Urban Outfitters by Emily Quirk

Big Freedia for Urban Outfitters

Back in May I had the honor of shooting Big Freedia, THE Queen Diva, in New Orleans for #UOPride month and the "About A Band" series for Urban Outfitters! Full story, interview, and photos below! 

If you know nothing about the New Orleans bounce scene, educate yourself! It's one of the most inspiring, freeing, and positive worlds of music existing today! EXPRESS YOURSELF!

YOU ALREADY KNOW!

Down with the Pudge by Emily Quirk

A major portion of my recently attended shows have been centered around Pudge, the freshest punk band emerging out of New Orleans. I tried to keep a count of how many of their shows I've attended since their first show at Heaven's Gate in February, but the count's been lost on me. I spent this past week on the road with them in the Northeast, Midwest, AND AT SKATOPIA! !!! Keep your eyes peeled for all those photos and maybe some extra treats to come from that experience. Here's photos from scattered shows since March to tide you over. 

ALSO, back in May, Antigravity Magazine did an interview with Pudge featuring my photos.

All photos I've shot of Pudge are viewable HERE
