This monochrome set of Steve Syx and his band was taken at Ruta Maya Cafe in Austin, which I believe has actually moved to a new location since these photos were taken a few weeks ago. It was a cool space for live music, and there were good opportunities for some interesting camera angles (some of my favorite shots of Steve were taken peeking out from a curtain behind the stage). I don't know what will be replacing Ruta Maya, if anything, but I hope it stays a music venue.
As for Steve and the boys, although you guys only get to see the moody black and white shots, I can tell you that they are musicians that clearly enjoy what they do. It's always a pleasure for me to shoot performers that are having a good time on stage.
