Carey Mercer of Frog Eyes at Fox Cabaret

Sad to hear this morning of the demise of legendary Vancouver band Frog Eyes, but eagerly awaiting full release of their final LP, Violet Psalms! 

It was a real pleasure photographing Carey Mercer’s solo set at the Fox earlier this month – Carey’s wall of sound was definitely a high point of a great lineup that also featured Hello Blue Roses & Strength of Materials (and Dan Bejar of Destroyer hovering offstage). 

Given how much his set owed to shoe gaze  – set for a revival anytime now, for those for whom it ever went away 🤣 – I couldn’t resist also including a bonus photo, gazing at Carey’s actual shoes: enjoy! 🎸 💀
