We’re halfway through Kid Cadaver’s tour of the west coast .
The tour started Friday in San Francisco, but on Saturday morning I took a Greyhound bus up to meet up with the guys in Oakland.
There have been restless drives, a couple nights spent in the van, two AAA calls, a trip to Autozone, fancy doughnuts, pine tree vibes, the friendliest hospitality, and 4 shows.My favorite parts though have been the moments in between, the ones you don’t get a glimpse into as just a fan, photographer or friend. We're all stuck in the van for hours on end, sleeping on other people's floors, and making it through each day spending every single second of it in one another's company. You reach a certain point where you have to let all your guards down: you're barely showering, you're barely sleeping, and things are bound to get really comfortable. Being the only girl traveling with four dudes has been interesting too, if you'r wondering. I'm straight up living in a boy's world this week and I'm loving it: it's hilarious, refreshing and somehow humbling. It's humbling getting to know these guys on such a grounded level, in the most unintentional yet natural way .
I’ve loved capturing those little moments, in between the hustle of soundchecks and the long, drives. By now I’ve shot the band’s live shows countless of times, but being able to capture them unfiltered has allowed me to connect with them so much more with who they are off stage.
Here are some my favorite shots from the first half of the tour:::
