Digable Planets, Joey Purp and a mending leg

Last night, Digable Planets and Joey Purp performed a free show at House of Vans and it was the first event I've shot since Pissed Jeans, Mannequin Pussy and Prowler in Philadelphia. The reason for my hiatus was that I broke my right tibia in mid-March and haven't been able to stand or walk on it since the injury.  I'm on the mend and wearing a boot for another few weeks.

House of Vans announced their lineup for this summer and series kicked off with Digable Planets and Joey Purp. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to shoot with a camera, cane and medical boot in the pit but I made it work (the pit wasn't extremely crowded which also helped). The lighting on the performers made things a little tricky but I'm happy with the results (although I think last summer's photos of Digable Planets are stronger). Images from last night's fun show appear in the below gallery.  If you missed DP, they're also performing on June 21st in Red Hook for Summerstage.
