This Wednesday is the opening for a photography show Featuring the Rock Photography of Amy and Dan Halligan — really great people you’ve probably been with at shows who also have made magazines like Tablet and blogs like 10things the richest, most rewarding visual musical coverage in Seattle. If there’s a prime moving punk or great garage or excellent local metal band worth shooting, Dan and Amy has shot them. And their photos also include lots of other cool subjects. I have always been a huge fan of theirs and think that the 10things blog is one of the very best out there.
The opening party is September 16th, 8-11pm at Tigertail in Ballard.
Here’s the press release from Dan:
“Amy and Dan Halligan have been photographing and writing about punk and rock bands for twenty years. In the 1990s they published the Northwest’s largest music zine, 10 Things, and in the 2000s their photos and writing were featured in almost every issue of the alternative publication Tablet. Their photography has also been featured in publications like The Stranger, Maximum Rock’n’Roll, Blood & Thunder and Vice Magazine. The Halligan’s latest photo show, at Ballard’s Tigertail, features explosive live band photography of punk and rock bands. Shining the spotlight on both national and local music, the show includes bands like The Spits, The Fluid, The Bronx, Go Like Hell, The Hot Rollers, Zero Down and The Briefs.
The opening party promises to be a fun party featuring rock’n’roll drink specials and recorded music from the bands featured in the show, please stop by!”
