All By Himself.

Usually when the front man for a band strikes out on his own, it’s because the band has dissolved. Watch any of VH1’s “Behind the Music” episodes (do they even air those anymore?) and you’ll either hear that the band members parted ways to “explore solo interests,” or that there was a “descent into drugs… and alcohol,” and always in that grave voice of the VH1 voiceover guy, who’s almost as annoying at the Bravo guy, but not quite.

Happily, neither of these was the case. This was Chad Ebel (more honestly, his silhouette) of the Richmond band, The Florentines. He was working alone, but I understand that a few of his band mates were in attendance.

The occasion was Live at Ipanema, a once a month salute to local artists – musicians and photographers alike. This month Chad was the music and I was the photographer. It was really cool to be able to move around the space to wherever I wanted to get a better view of the headliner. I suspect that this is what a backstage pass is like. Kinda.

The lighting in Ipanema is sparse. It’s great ambience for a show but it made picture taking harder. I was happy there was enough background light to make this shot work.

You can read more about the show here, at the blog of an out-going buddy of mine.
