I forgot to scan this picture when I first developed this set of pictures and it was almost lost until I randomly remembered it. It would have been a shame. It was the perfect night spent with a great friend. This was the night we wound up seeing Sleigh Bells at their album launch party at Le Poisson Rouge. We randomly got to meet Alexis Krauss, the lead singer, before the show, and as super fans we could not stop talking about it. Christina, a fashion designer, even wore a camo skirt she made for the occasion to match her Sleigh Bells tour shirt. Later we would have one of the best nights of our lives, culminating with dancing on stage with Alexis. This picture was taken shortly after meeting Alexis. Christina was still jumpy and jittery but I love that she’s often so calm about everything that you can’t really tell.
I’ve photographed Sleigh Bells before but the set from this night were all taken on a disposable camera. The pictures came out so much more raw, totally in line with the band’s style.
