When the Charlie Watts Riots released their sophomore album, A Break in the Weather, back in September of 2013, it looked like the band was about to break big. Like nationally. Or even a Japanese tour.

But instead, the power popsters pulled back on the reins of stardom, and they all but stepped out of the spotlight altogether. In fact, for a while there, it seemed as though maybe CWR had quietly called it quits without telling anyone.

Fortunately, that wasn’t the case. After a hiatus from the Local 518 spotlight of nearly a year, Charlie Watts Riots emerged from hibernation last month and rattled the roof of the Low Beat as though they’d never left.

Hopefully, we won’t have to wait so long for their next show…

    Tim, great photo! I know how difficult it is to shoot at the Low Beat. You skillfully got the right moment and converted it to B & W for added drama. Very cool. Joe Putrock, my friend and one of my favorite photographers, sitting behind the drum kit, should really appreciate this shot. Be well!
