I had the chance to see Dev Hynes' most notable project, Blood Orange, put on a benefit show with some of his most well-known collaborators at the Apollo last December
. It was one hell of a night, and it would have easily made our list of the top 10 concerts we caught in 2015 if we hadn't caught the show the day before we ran the list. (And it ensured the fact that I will without question be catching Blood Orange live again when I make my way down to Bonnaroo this summer where he'll be sure to put on a killer set.)
And that got me back to thinking about the time we here at Baeble shot Dev Hynes before Blood Orange even existed. In addition to his work as Blood Orange, Dev also had a project called Lightspeed Champion that we shot at SXSW in 2008. It's a great show, and it's also worth tuning into for an appearance from a pre-Lungs
Florence Welch. You'll want to see this.
