I got a phone call from SF Weekly, "Sorry this is last minute, can you shoot photos of Day Wave tonight?" I thought to myself, "what an awesome call!"

I discovered Day Wave in March while scouring bay area show calendars for bands going to SxSW. I was hoping to find local bands that might want to play Music City SF's Bay Area showcase. Day Wave was officially booked on my calendar for 45 minutes ... then the band realized they wouldn't arrive in Austin in time for the showcase. I was bummed that I was unable to book them, but vowed to see them as soon as possible.

Thus this was a photo assignment was PERFECT!

Hot Flash Heat Wave opened for Day Wave. I only have one question ... how do they make being in a band look so effortlessly cool? Why do some bands have to be taught how to look like a band?
