If you’ve never heard Erin and Her Cello, you’re missing out on some of the funniest stuff out there. Seriously, I almost spit my beer out of my nose and onto my camera – twice. The thing that makes Erin’s show ridiculously entertaining isn’t her backup singers/dancers, her songs about Duane Reade counter clerks with grotesquely long fingernails, or her perfectly delivered stage banter, it’s that all of the above combine to give you some sort of lovably twisted Mr. Rogers-style children’s show where Mr. Rogers unzips his face and turns into a cute curly-haired cello player who swills wine on stage and embarrasses the children in the audience during commercial breaks. Read on for more photos and be sure to check Erin at this Saturday at the Living Room.

Shooting Notes

Since I was attending the concert as a fan and not actually working for a change, I shot this set primarily from my seat in the center aisle using  the Nikon 200-700mm VR II attached to the Nikon D3 for all but a few frames. The more I use the new 70-200mm, the more I’m impressed by it’s focusing accuracy and sharpness wide open.

Gear Used for this Shoot

• Nikon D3 Camera Body
Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II
Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
