Wild Flag

This was taken with limited space and time in about 30 seconds before the band went on for Wicker Park Fest Sat. I don't really think it's one of my better portraits because of the time constraints but either way, see this band live! So much fun energy and again their full length record is coming out soon on Sept. 13th on Merge records.
