A Night with Raw Geronimo

Laena of Raw Geronimo asked me to come by their practice space and snap some shots for old times’ sake. They were moving from their shared space in Silver Lake to a new space in Downtown Los Angeles and wanted a couple photographic mementoes.

Raw Geronimo has been pretty busy, in fact; the band just welcomed a new guitar player and are wrapping up a new record that is set to come out this July. So I shot a fresh group photo to make the new lineup official and made myself invisible as best I could so to capture Raw Geronimo in their natural habitat.

Nothing like a full wall-length mural of screaming teenage girls to get you motivated.
