Where I was at: CBGB's June 2006 / Sonic Youth soundcheck

On June 13, 2006 - 4 months before CBGB's closed - Sonic Youth, set to release their new album 'Rather Ripped', played the club, and filmed the video for the song "Do You Believe in Rapture" that night. I was asked by director Braden King to shoot stills during their set to incorporate into the video along, with super 8mm film footage superbly shot by Jem Cohen.

This photo was taken during the sound check that afternoon, before the fans crowded in down front.
