Deb Frazin Photo Column—Fuzz

This photo was snapped on the fourth (and final) night of the Fuzz residency at The Teragram Ballroom. It was the first time I’d seen them play live since 2015, and as expected, their set was a thunderous, rumbling earthquake that whipped up the sold-out crowd into a wild eruption of pure joy.

Deb Frazin Photo Column—Smirk

This photo of Nick Vicario (Cemento, Public Eye, Crisis Man) with his band Smirk was shot when they opened for Osees at Non Plus Ultra earlier this month. I stood next to John Dwyer during their set, and Dwyer was more fired up about Smirk than anyone else in the crowd!
