Kevin Rotter

NYE during Chicago's Polar Vortex

Kevin Rotter

This is Kevin Rotter! Kevin plays guitar with The Copyrights. He and I met a few years ago in Chicago when he played a New Year’s Eve show. This was also the first time I had ever been to Chicago. Locals kept saying “Polar Vortex” everywhere we went. I remember that I had stupidly only packed canvas shoes on that trip; living on the West Coast, I have no need to ever dress for 14-inch snow storms. ANYWAY! Since meeting him, Kevin has always made any event we are both at better just by being there.

I took this photo at The Wooly during the Signals Midwest set at Fest 16!

Shawn McClung points his camera at the people he’s met through music. One shot, black and white, in the moment. No other rules.
