Miike Snow / MNDR at Terminal 5

Miike Snow
This was a challenging shoot. Unlike the last time I saw Miike Snow, the lighting was extremely unforgiving and the band decided to invest heavily in a fog machine. Nevertheless, the jackalope-loving electro masqueraders delivered a riveting set that stuck with tracks from their eponymous debut album (albeit with heavy ornamentation and tweaking) and delivered an impressive remix of Vampire Weekend's "Kids Don't Stand A Chance". MNDR opened and also performed in the dark. Still, I am pretty in love with the shot above because you can still make out Amanda's humongous glasses. I was shooting for House List -- check out a few more pics here, along with Aaron Stein's write up.
