I photographed this show back in July for an interview I was doing with Shugo for CMJ. I never got around to finishing editing the photos mainly because I forgot about them. But I’ve found some more free time as I recover post-op so I finally got around to finishing the edits! Supporting acts for Shugo were OneOne and Mirah. Being there at this show, I was totally out of my element. The crowd was so eclectic, as was the lineup. It was an out of body experience but it was amazing simultaneously. By far, Shugo’s set was one of the coolest performances I’ve ever witnessed.
