I've been shooting Stuyedeyed's live sets at various New York venues for a few years now, so it was really cool getting to photograph them at a different spot. They played at Soda Bar in San Diego which is a short 10 minute drive from my house.
I hung out with them before and after their show and they crashed at my place that night. They told me stories from the national tour and I told them how good it felt to be on West Coast. The next day my roommate, who is a mechanic, was able to help them with their van and gave them some weed for their trip.
It's pretty cool seeing Stuyedeyed outside of New York City. I'm glad I was able to establish relationships with different bands like them over the years and be in a position now where I can provide a place to crash when they come through San Diego.
