Last week The Hold Steady played a four night run of sold out shows at the Brooklyn Bowl in New York City and I was there to capture some of the highlights in this Flickr set. My personal highlight from the week may have been Patrick from Titus Andronicus and Emilyn Brodsky dueting on “Chillout Tent”. So much so, I made a small photo album of just that song.
I shot this video with Steve Barone using his old Super 8mm movie camera. It features clips of the band’s reunion show at the D4th of July celebration outside of the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis on July 4, 2015 as well as the only practice session for the show the day before. As Steve stated, “Lifter Puller does not advocate using Super 8 for anything because it is expensive as fuck to get it processed. Use Instagram.”
The new Craig Finn album “Faith in the Future” is out now and available on vinyl. The album artwork includes a photo I took of him just outside of Nashville TN.
20 of my “behind the scenes” photos from the “Teeth Dreams” recording sessions can be found by following :: this link :: – Shot in August and October 2013 at Rock Falcon Studios in Franklin TN (just south of Nashville).
The latest in the “Views from Rock Falcon” video series I shot and edited for The Hold Steady is at the bottom of this article :: The Guardian UK. Besides the trailer (post from January linked below), this was my favorite piece to put together as it utilized a lot of my old photographs of the band as well as some never-seen-before ones by Craig Finn.
I shot and edited this footage in Nashville in August and October during the recording sessions for the new Hold Steady album. More videos including interviews with the band and the producer will also be released soon.
