A few days ago I had the opportunity to photograph and do a video of the band Good Night, States.  They met as students at Grove City College and are based in Pittsburgh, but one of the members lives in Philly and another in New Jersey.  They are also the only band I can think of with a comma in their name.

I was excited to do this because I’ve known keyboard player Megan Lindsey since she and Tim Tobitsch opened their awesome hot dog shop, Franktuary, several years ago.

Here’s the video:

I encourage you to check out their last album Short Films on Self-Control  and to look for the followup CD entitled In the Impossible Tension.  They’ll be debuting the songs from the EP at a release party at Thunderbird Cafe in Lawrenceville on Friday, September 11 at 8p.m.
