Thurston Moore by photographer Lori Baily (more)
It pains me to have to write this post.
BrooklynVegan-contributing photographer (and friend to anyone that has met her) Lori Baily's parents were murdered in their Nebraska home this past Sunday. It was a completely random act of violence by a suspected psychopath who is now in custody.
Lori Baily is an asset to the entire music community in NYC. Whether it's checking out Thurston Moore, the 'world music' of Extra Golden or even a metal show, you'll find Lori out watching and photographing bands almost every night of the week. You saw her pictures of Iggy & the Stooges on this website yesterday. I know that her plans for this month included spending a lot of time at John Zorn's club The Stone, seeing the Melvins and checking out fellow Nebraskan Conor Oberst at Bowery Ballroom tonight.
She is also constantly helping out bands, photographers & friends in any way she can
"Lori is one of those people who will go to any means to help out a struggling artist or struggling musician. She has put us up numerous times, for free. Anything we've ever needed help with, Lori has always been a sure bet. She does a lot for free for a lot of people in the NYC music scene. We'd love to be able to return that generosity to her in this time of need."Lori's parents were the same way. Now Lori needs our help.
