An Encounter with Caroline Polachek of Chairlift

One photo by G.  One photo by a complete stranger.  You’ll figure out which is which.

Here’s another reason I bring my camera everywhere I go… The other night I was arriving at Mercury Lounge for the late show and the band from the early show, Chairlift, was packing their gear after their set.  I’ve seen Chairlift before so I immediately recognized lead singer Caroline Polachek.  I started talking to her and asked her if she would mind taking a photo with me.  She told me to hold on as she scanned the room.  Suddenly, inspiration struck her.  She pointed to a chair and said “here’s what we are going to do – get on your knees and I am going to give birth to you for the photo.”  As you can see, that is EXACTLY what happened!  Epic.

We then took a “serious” photo, but I couldn’t help smiling.

Thanks Caroline!  That was definitely an experience for the books!
