Might As Well
I was a music editor at a local weekly and my job involved - or so I thought at least and one could call it research - going to see a lot of shows.
But unfortunately, we had a limited budget for freelancers and back then a photographer had to incur the cost of film & processing plus their time and energy for an assignment [uh, analog]. I felt bad only being able to pay them what I could pay them so I took to taking pictures myself (satisfying my latent desires under the guise of "job responsibility").
This is a picture of Mac McCaughan eating a fish taco. I believe this was part of a story I wrote about Merge Records turning ten.
Or maybe it was just for a new record they had released.
Back when they released new records and back when I had the time to write about people releasing new records.
