One of the advantages of things like music festivals and SXSW is the chance that you’ll happen upon a band that you’ve never heard of before, but stops you in your tracks. Churchwood was one of those acts for me. A couple of years ago we were at the Yard Dog for the cheap Lagunitas and the Jon Langford show. We got an entire day of great music, including Churchwood. They had a great sound and put on a great show. So much that we now just spend our SXSW Saturdays at the Yard Dog and trust them to take care of us. Here are a few pictures from the 2017 and 2018 shows.
A couple of folding cameras we inherited.
The one on the right is an Agfa. I don’t know what the one on the left is. The lens is a Rodenstock. The shutter is a Pronto, made by Gauthier. The AGC logo apparently stands for Alfred Gauthier Calmbach, and also refers to the shutter (the shutter people sure got a lot of branding on this camera).
This is one of my favorite SXSW photos. On the stage is a John Langord band that’s going bananas, but these guys are just working the sound board, so you can go nuts in the audience.
For some reason, this stood out tonight. No Age, back when Fun Fun Fun was at Waterloo Park.
