I’ve photographed Red Baraat several times in the past, including their past two Holi / Festival of Colors shows. The one in 2013 was at Webster Hall and those pictures are on PopMatters while the most recent New York City one was was held at the Highline Ballroom. The band liked my photos enough from the prior year that I shot that gig for Red Baraat which they then shared the pictures on their Facebook page. Their 2015 flyer features an image of mine from the Webster Hall gig. Tonight they will be performing at Brooklyn Bowl with Rupa & the April Fishes and the Brooklyn Raga Massive. I will be going tonight and once again taking pictures.
Of course, when photographing a full set from a band, you end up getting more shots than you end up using, so I thought why not revisit the past two years and see if I have any photo outtakes that were worth sharing. Check out a few from each show after the jump.
