Will Simmons and The Upholsterers

How I spent Saturday: Watching crime shows, taking a long nap, and then waking to do a band photo shoot in the North Side. Along the way we saw a fist fight on the corner of 40th and Butler streets, talked about the weather and I took mental note of all the places along the way for future photo stories (under a rail bridge, an empty storefront in Lawrenceville, an empty row of houses along Penn – must write the rest of these later before I forget). I always get a little nervous before doing a photo shoot with other people, but these boys were so easy and fun to work with that I forgot pretty quickly I was nervous at all. facebook.com/upholsterers

Lots of fun these washed out photos which are nicely composed (love the first one which is so vertical). Dunno why but I am reminded of first Beatles photos and that of course makes me happy.Many thanks.

Hi Michael – Thanks for stopping by! I’m glad you said the Beatles, because the boys were going for a Monkees kind of feel to this shoot (whether they realized it or not!).

Definitely looks like 70s time capsules. The sculpture adds to that mood.
