In this second episode of our 5-part Mini-Docudrama, we take an in-depth look at the amazing work that Bryan Sutter and Jason Stoff, our official photographers, do for An Under Cover Weekend. These two guys have managed to further the AUCW brand by developing an exceptional and consistent visual identity for the photos of each band that we use for our site and for press opportunities, bringing both a new sense of excitement and legitimacy to An Under Cover Weekend. This year, we shot all ten bands inside of the Thaxton Speakeasy and to say that the results were incredible is a serious understatement. Scroll back through our blog to check out all of the amazing photos that they’ve taken from the last two years and check out their story, in the video below.

We have been trying to do an AUCW documentary for many years now and thanks to the incredibly generous work of Allison Babka, Kevin FitzGerald, and David Treadway, it is now a reality. Also, many, many thanks to The Silver Ballroom for giving us their entire bar for a day, to Bryan Sutter and Jason Stoff for defining the AUCW brand with their lenses, and to our amazing cast who speak so highly of our little event.
An Under Cover Weekend – The Photography features the song “All We Need” by HUMDRUM which you can download, along with 9 other amazing original songs from St. Louis’ finest bands, as a part of the AUCW6 UNcovered Mix Tape that we released with I Went To A Show.
This 5-part series was shot in a single day on 4 days notice and then edited in many sleepless nights. Our team is amazing.
