OGRE bassist/singer Ed Cunningham levitates, apparently.
Ogre’s Ross Markonish lays down a solo during a set as openers for Dinosaur Jr. I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to capture a beam of light poking through the gap created by Markonish’s strumming arm. The stacks behind Markonish belong to J. Mascis, and weren’t being played through in this shot, something I wouldn’t learn until later that night. Nonetheless, I think the back-line stacks add to the photo rather than detract. It’s proof that Ogre can stand every bit as tall as a legend like Mr. Mascis.
