THE FIRST NIGHT

 

This project started when I was invited to the first show of a new venue that was opening in Detroit, right across the street from the Opera House. The place wasn't officially open yet and the stage was in construction but the owners wanted to get things started. The line up was peculiar. The first band was an acoustic drum circle called Orizaba, followed by the DJ Egghead who created electronic beats by spinning records. An ambient band called Cerebus-Shoal closed the show. They used everything from guitars to accordions. Struck by witnessing so many genres being displayed in one night, I decided to document this space. I wanted to watch this place evolve.
