My friend Rachel Demy has spent a decade managing tours and doing production for bands like The National, St. Vincent, Death Cab for Cutie, and many others. For all those years, she's always had a camera around her neck, seizing rare opportunities to capture fleeting moments of art, joy, sadness, and friendship on and off the stage. Tonight at 7pm, Seattle's The Piranha Shop opens a beautiful show of Rachel's photography and that of Tyler Kalberg who has documented musicians like The Head & The Heart, Damien Jurado, and Modern Kin. The exhibition, titled "Green Room," will be on display until October 4. Catch a glimpse.
GREEN ROOM exposes life on tour through the small, secret moments not seen under the house lights. Using the dichotomy between Rachel Demy’s color photography and Tyler Kalberg’s black-and-white, you see the highs and the lows, the camaraderie and the solitude, the exhilaration and the exhaustion that compose a story much deeper than the performer on stage. It’s a story of the people who make the music, and why it’s important that the long road leads home.
