These days anything Matt Berninger does is going to generate headlines and draw a crowd, and his latest side-project, EL VY, is no different. D.C. loves The National (remind me to tell you about the time back in 2005-ish I started a rumor that The National hated D.C. because they never played here and it got enough traction that the band formally responded to it), so of course this show as packed. And as usual with all-things-Berninger, the lighting was dark and moody. Lit almost entirely by green and red LEDs on the side of the stage, this show was a very challenging shoot. We’re talkin’ ISO 4000 with shutter speeds around 1/30.
