Music Issue 2010: Atlanta photographers shoot Atlanta musicians 

Deerhunter, 2003 The first Deerhunter shows were always thrilling on some level because you knew to expect the unexpected. I took this shot in the summer of 2003 at the Alphabet House. Only a few people outside of the bands playing (Blame Game, Japanther, Deerhunter, the Alphabets) were on hand. On this night Deerhunter featured only Bradford [Cox] and the late Justin Bosworth — as well as a cameo from Jane of the Alphabets on saxophone. I remember them playing about 20 minutes, with Bradford abruptly ending the chaos by wielding some weird spoken word stream of conscious rant about high school into the microphone. It seemed to catch everyone a little off guard. — Michael Koenig
