Childbirth in NYC

Bree McKenna & Julia Schapiro of Childbirth

The Seattle band known as Childbirth performed in New York City for the first and second time on Thursday, June 9 and Friday, June 10, 2016 during Northside Festival. I spent time with the band before, during, and after their performance at Baby's All Right in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Friday. More images from that day can be found on Impose Magazine here.

I was lucky enough to spend some time with two rappers I've been following for a while: Jean Grae and Mike Eagle. For the feature on Impose, we had lunch and spent some time in two bars in north Brooklyn that I enjoy: Turkey's Nest and Barcade.

More images from the day can be found here on Impose. Thanks so much to both artists for being so cool and game for me following them around and taking pictures of them for a couple of hours.
