I got a phone call from SF Weekly, “Sorry this is last minute, can you shoot photos of Day Wave tonight?” I thought to myself, “what an awesome call!”
I discovered Day Wave in March while scouring bay area show calendars for bands going to SxSW. I was hoping to find local bands that might want to play Music City SF’s Bay Area showcase. Day Wave was officially booked on my calendar for 45 minutes … then the band realized they wouldn’t arrive in Austin in time for the showcase. I was bummed that I was unable to book them, but vowed to see them as soon as possible.
Thus this was a photo assignment was PERFECT!
Hot Flash Heat Wave opened for Day Wave. I only have one question … how do they make being in a band look so effortlessly cool? Why do some bands have to be taught how to look like a band?
