The energy of an album-release show is second to none. The crowd tends to consist mostly of die-hard, mailing-list-subscribing fans, so even if it's a larger event there's always a palpable intimacy. Last Friday, I was fortunate enough to get to check out the release concert for Yumi Zouma's EP ll at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn, where they were joined by the wonderfully eccentric Jerry Paper and the dreamy pop stylings of Future of What. It was a phenomenal show, and the headliners put on a truly exuberant, joyful performance in celebration of their new music (and newly-realized international fame). Check out our photos from the night below.

 Jerry may be mixing up his quarter- and mid-life crises, or just getting them all out of the way at once. Either way, we hope the look catches on.
