I took one for the team and skipped shooting Them Crooked Vultures so I could shoot Grizzly Bear in this time slot instead. Well, technically, only select photographers were allowed to shoot Them Crooked Vultures (as well as LCD Soundsystem, Thom Yorke, Spoon, and Gorillaz), as per their PR people, which means only one photographer from each publication. Chris really wanted to shoot them, and seeing as how they grab the copyrights to the photos anyway, I didn’t have a problem not shooting them.
As you can see, the lighting for Grizzly Bear was kind of atrocious, but I managed to get some shots that I was happy with. I couldn’t stick around for any more than my allotted three songs unfortunately – I had to go post up for a spot in the pit for Echo and the Bunnymen.
