I'm pleased to have so many incredible photography contributors to the site, but I'm going to be frank for a second... With the majority of our coverage leaning towards frumpy, static jambands, geriatric classic rockers and shoe gazing, lo-fi indie bands, every now and then we could use some images to spice things up.
Enter Escort, the seventeen piece self-proclaimed "Disco Orchestra" out of Brooklyn. Our contributor Rickie Kostiner has turned in a photo set that has to be one of the most visually alluring we've ever published, packed with the sex appeal that five dudes in dirty t-shirts hunched over guitars just won't deliver.
For their part, Escort, appearing as a part of the annual Chicago Independent Music and Movies (CIMM) Festival, delivered the goods. Flashy stage gear, outrageous sounds emanating from all corners of the stage and a surefire disco groove that all centered around front-woman Adeline Michele, who also donned a bass guitar at times throughout the night.
