Join us for fireside chats with photographer, JJ Gonson on the OVV. As founder of ONCE Somerville, JJ Gonson has been in and around the music business since 1985 in Boston and Portland OR. She started as a rock photographer, she has booked tours, made records and managed bands. We will discuss her life and work including her newest photography book release that accompanied a commemorative 25th Anniversary Edition of Elliot Smith's second album. The book of rare and previously unseen photographs with handwritten lyrics, and reminiscences from Smith’s friends and colleagues. Hosted by James McElhiney.

“We call ourselves independent, but what we are is interdependent. Performance is art. Art soothes and nurtures us. It makes us happy.” ONCE VV will work hard to add a warmth and hospitality to the livestream by evoking the hominess and cozy hospitality they are known for and will continue to keep the ONCE name tied to diverse and quality programming as they frontier the wild west of an online “virtual venue.”

All for ONCE and ONCE for ALL! https://bit.ly/SUPPORTONCE
