TV Smith at Maxwell's.
Sometime in 2003.
Back at some point in 2003 I was able to see TV Smith play live when he opened up some shows for my friends in the World/Inferno Friendship Society. TV played a good set of his solo stuff mixed with some great tunes from his days as frontman to the legendary Adverts. I've since seen TV on several occasions, but this photo was from the first time I saw him play. Fast forward to summer of this year and I'm seeing Franz Nicolay play at Union Pool in Brooklyn. Franz was a member of World/Inferno back when they toured with TV and if I remember right, he was pretty excited about it. Anyway, so a few weeks after the Union Pool show, I'm in the darkroom making prints, and this particular shot of Franz seemed a bit familiar.

So now it's up to them to battle it out as to who has the better photo. Or they could just sing along together, like in this photo.

I forget when I made this photo.
