In as transient a city as Washington, DC, it's not often that you encounter a true DC native. Or three of them who have been friends since the fourth grade, started a band together, went off to college in three different states and then returned to take their band to the next level.
Ladies and gentlemen...meet Mission South. That is their (much abbreviated, second hand) story.
I know. AMAZING, right?!
I first met Mission South last year, when I had the chance to photograph them at my favorite little rural airport. These guys are absolutely amazing across the board. They are great guys and great musicians.
When I realized that Mission South would be playing at the camera-friendly Black Cat last month, I decided it was time to break in my new 70-200mm lens. It was an amazing show, and I have some shots to share here! More importantly, you have the chance to check them out live for yourself this Thursday, February 7 at DC 9. And lastly, for those of you who are interested in film photography, I will be posting some shots I took at the concert with my Pentax K1000 later this week. More film!
But for now...enjoy these shots and hope to see you at the show Thursday...
