Photography: IDLES + Preoccupations at Terminal 5

Posted: by The Editor

Since their 2018 release, Joy Is An Act of Resistance on Partisan Records, IDLES have been growing at a rapid speed. Last year they played a packed show at Rough Trade, and now graduated to playing a sold out show at NYC’s Terminal 5. The band’s message, stage presence and overall positive attitude about building a community are what draws fans to their music. Sarah was there at their last show of their U.S. tour on October 17th to capture IDLES in all of their glory. With openers, Preoccupations, the show was incredible. Everyone really came together in a sea of total strangers to make magic happen.
