MITSKI. AND LUCY DACUS. It's kind of a wonder my heart didn't explode for this one. Mitski, who recently announced an indefinite hiatus, celebrated Be the Cowboy with two sold out shows at Summerstage. Mitski ensures she is not quitting music, but stated, "I've been on non-stop tour for over 5 years, I haven't had a place to live during this time, I sense that if I don't step away soon, my self-worth/identity will start depending too much on staying in the game, in the constant churn." I was honored to get to photograph her last night of shows, and to experience the collective chills as she finished her set singing "Carry Me Out". Lucy Dacus' opening set was a treat of old and new songs which felt all too brief. See more from this amazing show at We All Want Someone to Shout For and on the music tab of this site!
