St. Vincent @ The Pageant w/Sarah Neufeld } 05.27.15

St. Vincent @ The PagentWith St. Vincent’s 2014 self-titled album still one of the few albums that still dominates my 2015 listening, I jumped at the chance to photograph her headlining show last week at The Pageant. It turned out to be a stunner of a performance that left the crowd bowing to the guitar goddess. Sarah Neufeld of the Arcade Fire opened with a haunting delivery from her violin.

It was my third time shooting St. Vincent (Old Rock House in 2011, Firebird in 2009), but the first time since she’s cranked up her visual performance elements, which meant figuring out how to traverse the barrage of strobes and bright lights thrown from the stage. While still a handful, the predictability of the lights and her timed movements actually worked well for playing around with in-camera multiple exposures.
