Stay Ahead of the Weather – Butchering A Back Catalog (Nervous Energies session)
Back on April 27th, 2011 I filmed this Nervous Energies session with Evan and Matt from Stay Ahead of the Weather in their practice space in Chicago, Illinois. I was up in Chicago shooting the album artwork for Evan’s solo project Into It. Over It. so I had to take the opportunity to get a couple Stay Ahead songs while the guys were around.
A few minutes after filming this session I checked my computer while the guys were rehearsing. I watched in horror as tornadoes ripped through my city of Birmingham and Tuscaloosa live on a local news feed and read friends tweets/facebook statuses about getting to safety and how crazy everything at the time was. It ended with over 200+ people in Alabama alone losting their life. A lot of the damage has been cleaned up and out of sight but there is still a ton of people needing help. Please donate to the American Red Cross – https://american.redcross.org/site/SPageServer?pagename=ntld_southern_tornadoes and volunteer in any way you can. If you would like volunteering suggestions email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be glad to try and direct you to an appropriate non-profit.
