This image was the from first house show I've photographed in months. I have been attending and photographing house shows and local concerts in Grand Rapids for the past four years, however my busy schedule has kept me away for a while. These shows were all I looked forward to: seeing friends, making new ones, and listening to some incredible musicians from around the world, all within a tiny basement, warehouse, living room, etc.

I finally got a day off to see my good friends in Moses perform alongside two other amazing bands, Reptilian (Kalamazoo, MI) and Vasudeva (New Jersey) at Witch House, a house venue in Eastown of Grand Rapids. I've had the pleasure of seeing all these acts perform multiple times, and they never fail to put on an outstanding show. I can't explain how good it felt to be back in this loud, ecstatic environment again, if only for the night.
