A Bending of Its Own Kind

Oz Arts host­ed FALL in June 2017 for “A Bend­ing of Its Own Kind”, and here are some of my favorite pho­tographs from that performance.

Those Darlins & Friends, January 2016

The last Nashville show of Those Dar­lins was late Jan­u­ary at The Base­ment East. They played with Adia Vic­to­ria and Tris­ten, both of whom were beyond excep­tion­al as well.

I’ve been going to Those Dar­lins shows for many years, well before liv­ing in Nashville, and they will be missed.

Rayland Baxter & Ruby Rabbitfoot, August 2015

Thanks to the sup­port of East of 8th, I’m able to pho­tograph plen­ty of shows — which leads to hear­ing great new music! I’d heard Ray­land Bax­ter before, but Ruby the Rab­bit­foot was total­ly new to me. Both played a great set at 3rd and Lind­s­ley in August as part of the Nashville Sun­day Night Lightning100 series. A nice space with lots of view­ing options (includ­ing boun­ti­ful bal­cony seat­ing!) Be sure to check out both Ray­land and Ruby if you ever get a chance!

Apache Relay, Milktooth and Evan P. Donohue at Exit/In. April 2015

When you leave some shows you know that it is going to be seared into the mind for­ev­er and I’d def­i­nite­ly count this one as one of them. Three great acts at one of my all-time favorite venues. Lots of superla­tives, I know — but it tru­ly was an out­stand­ing evening of rock and roll.
