A photographic account of heavy music in Portland, Maine
A few months ago, when we scuttled this blog in a fit of self-preservation, we offered a bold prediction:
In the future, I’ll probably pop out of my Unabomber-style shack to photograph compelling shows.
Last night’s Dementia Five show was just such an occasion. The five-piece band — featuring two-thirds of local legends Ogre — re-emerged from a long hiatus and laid waste to the Empire stage. The show doubled as a cassette-release party and a triumphal grand re-opening for the band.
If you’re into fun reads, check out MaineToday’s recent interview with drummer Will Broadbent for his take on traumatic cartoons, origin stories, and the puzzling resurgence of cassette tapes.
It’s good shit.
If you hadn’t already heard, Broadbent gives killer interviews.
If you borrow these images for Facebook or whatnot, please credit us. (Watermarking sucks and we don’t wanna do it.) Also, don’t crop or alter.
Yes, we’re monsters.
