J. Tillman, aka Father John Misty, is nothing if not entertaining. He’s quite charming on stage and an able and willing frontman. He had a sold-out crowd at the 9:30 Club eating out of his hand last week in no time at all. And best of all, he lets photographers shoot his entire show! Due to my deadline and not wanting to edit any more photos than I needed to, I only stuck around for five or six songs before I left, but having that option is REALLY nice.
Shooting Notes: Tillman moves around the stage a lot, so be prepared. Lights for this show were pretty good by 9:30 Club standard, but Tillman’s hair had a tendency to fall down in his eyes while he was singing. Be sure to bring a wide lens if you want full body or 3/4 shots as he stays near the front of the stage for the most part. As I said before, you’re allowed to shoot the entire show (or at least we were).
