Laura Musselman

After several years of traveling around her native Midwest in pursuit of Northwest bands like The Long Winters and Death Cab for Cutie, SW contributing photographer Laura Musselman finally decided to relocate to Seattle. That was three years ago. After that, “I took my camera every time I went to a show,” she recalls. (It helped that she was also meeting local musicians while working her day job at Easy Street Records.) Today, going to clubs three and four nights a week, she’s avoided burn-out and become an accomplished pro. She’s chronicled the rise of local do-gooders Fleet Foxes, captured her heroes in Pearl Jam recently at KeyArena, and developed a crush on Elvis Perkins. Now she’s collected some of her favorite shots in “Give Me a Moment,” and tonight’s opening party is sure to attract some of those depicted. (21 and over.) CHRIS KORNELIS
