The Cure, Robert Smith

The Cure, Robert Smith, Beacon Theater, NYC
 Wow, last minute Sunday plans and went off to photograph The Cure at The Beacon Theater, New York City. I always like photographing at the Beacon - great sight-lines, and, as with most theaters, a great shot from the balcony (which I forgot to do yesterday)....

This band has been around since the late 70's, part of the post-punk and New Wave movements in the UK. They have been given credit for stating 'gothic rock'  in the early 80's....During the early 90's they were often called the most popular 'alternative' band in the world.

  1. Great band, The Cure. And Robert Smith was a truly talented songwriter. Their song, "Friday I'm In Love" is one of the best pop songs ever written. I shard it with my teenage kids and they love it, too.
