Portland photographer and WW contributor Megan Holmes, who is touring with Talk Normal and Zola Jesus, reports from the road in this special new tour diary series.
Let me give you a little context to my life at the moment. I've been spending the last two weeks in a whirlwind called New York. I took photos of Ida, saw an outdoor Vivian Girls show sponsored by Kate Spade, joined my friend dancing in Blue Man Group, and spent my days shuffling uptown to the Lincoln Center to cover fashion week. All of this time spent is leading up to a two week tour with Talk Normal and Zola Jesus. Last Saturday night at Webster Hall is where it all began. Thrill Jockey's metal explosion Liturgy were also on the bill. If you haven't had a chance to see them please. I hadn't had a good headbang in a while. Webster Hall has a 1500-person capacity and on this night it was filled to the brim.
