The Velvet Underground had been closed down for a short while. Then someone bought it and did some renovations. Now, it’s open again! Having never officially photographed a show there, I made a specific effort to do so. The first available gig I could snag was GoldLink, with Gravez, and McCallaman, on March 12. The lighting system is definitely much better than it was before. Too bad that they kept the two openers in virtual darkness for much of their respective sets. They did a bit better when GoldLink himself came on. I got to the show a touch late, so I wasn’t able to get a spot at the front of the stage. Luckily, the side stage area was restricted to the non-general public, so I was able to shoot from there in a relatively unencumbered fashion. I shot this on assignment for A Music Blog, Yea?
