Backstage at the Sinclair with Melissa Ferrick

May 14 I was out in Rochester photographing the Lilac Festival for Timber Press when I got a message from MF to ask if I could photograph her show at the Sinclair the next night. I was debating coming back the next day anyway and not spending another night there like I had originally planned...so I said yes, and after a nice long 6.5 hours in the car, grabbed my upstairs neighbor and headed to the Sinclair in Harvard Square.

I spent a little time backstage before her set started ... and it reminded me of all the shows at the Paradise that I used to sneak backstage at with my camera in college ... all the fly-on-the-wall documentary-style stuff that I love doing and hardly have the chance anymore ... of some future stories I want to capture, like this.
