My last show in 2022, and perhaps for quite some time looking ahead, certainly was a good one. When Katatonia announced a run of North American shows with support from my favorite band in The Ocean Collective, as well as Cellar Darling, I knew that was something I simply couldn’t miss, no matter what else was going on in the world. Well, it turns out I put that stance to the test. The November 10 date at the Worcester Palladium fell in the middle of an unexpected move from the seacoast of New Hampshire to the heart of the White Mountains. Regardless, the long journey on a work night proved more than worth it, and offered a rewarding break from all of life’s other forms chaos. It’s not often an opportunity to photograph two of your favorite bands on the same night emerges, and this experience was certainly one to remember for some time.
