History of Rock and Roll
Lead singer and guitar player Natalie of the all girl memphis punk band NOTS were closing the night at Beerland in Austin Texas during SXSW. These girls play loud and fast. Their energy is raw and unpredictable. Natalie was all over the place putting herself in the crowd and rolling around on the floor. I was up front and happened to get this extreme close up shot of her floored. In the process I was hit in the face with her guitar and cut open my eyebrow. Luckily it was during their last song and all the girls attended my battle wound with a dirty bar rag and a cup of ice. I walked 1 mile home at 2am with blood running down my face. This shot was worth it.
