As part of the Merge Records 20th Anniversary bonanza, Brooklyn based band, The Ladybug Transistor, played an off site show at the Holiday Inn in Chapel Hill, NC. They played and recorded 2 songs, one in the room and one in the hallway outside. Fun, great idea and they were a good bunch to work with, in the tight quarters,  especially since it was all being filmed and recorded for a documentary of sorts about all the goings on related to the anniversary.

They are having the Merge Fest in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, sold out long ago, and in anticipation of the event, I shot photos of the founders Laura Ballance and Mac McCaughan.
