When Jamie Stewart first announced his solo tour, one thing promised for each show was the presence of longtime collaborator David Horvitz, who would be armed with a camera and taking portrait photographs of each and every attendee.
"On a big tour, there is always 100,000,000 tons of gear to deal with... so there is never time to do a detailed parallel project. These shows will all be very intimate and microscopic, so there is space to blow up the normal mode," Stewart told XLR8R in February of this year.
True to his word, Stewart, with Horvitz' assistance, snapped show goers from Greenville to Tucson, and the pics are currently on the Xiu Xiu blog. The boys have organized them by city, so fans can easily view the many poses and fashion statements of Xiu Xiu/Stewart fans.
The best 300 photos will be published in a forthcoming book, but not before Stewart and Co head to Europe for another round of dates and, presumably, photos.
