Wear Many Hats Episode 34 — Justin Buschardt

Hey everyone it’s Rashad and this is Wear Many Hats presented by Dahsar where we talk about your main gig then we talk about your side hustle.

Justin Buschardt is an illustrator, musician, photographer, videographer and my favorite bartender of all time, well in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

We met when I used to work at the greatest coffeeshop / plant shop in Brooklyn called Homecoming. We used to shoot the shit, talk about bands, punk bands, Thursday, the band Thursday, on a Thursday, life, photos, his dog, and more importantly, love. Gross.

Justin is in the band called Sharkswimmer. Rips on the guitar.

As a mixed media artist, Justin is an illustrator for WNYC’s Radiolab episodes, designs for the coffee roasters Toby estate, variety, shot photos behind the scenes of my fav band Slowdive at Be Electric studios, and ran round town shooting photos as a day in the life series for Delicate Stee who I used to see all the time in Philly.

Justin, I fucking love you baby, so glad you’re on the show. You vaxxed up, sexy texan, let’s go with Justin Buschardt.

I know that you’ve gotten this before but when people say everything is bigger in Texas what do they mean since you’re from Texas


What do you shoot with?

So you do weddings now?

I used to be a concert photographer in Philly so you know I know the vibes. I used to shoot concert photography for Tame Impala, Underoath, Toro y Moi, not trying to measure dicks with ya but that’s always been my jam. Also shooting polaroids was my thing. Remember the MySpace days?


Your illuratating game 1 hundred. Cartoons galore. Would you ever do a cartoon show?

You illustrate for a bunch of coffee roasters, were you ever a barista?


Sharkswimmer, why the name? Who are you in the band with?

Let’s hear you rip a track on the guitar.

I remember when you told me about the shoot of Delicate Steve. Who would be your all time favorite to do behind the scenes shots with or a day in the life.

Broken Land

Loved seeing you at Broken Land, what’s your favorite drink to make?

Hats Off

So with everything you do I would like to bring to you our Dahsar Wear Many Hats solutions of incorporating everything together. Would you do a full blown artistry of photographing, illustrating, and designing a full bands record in the industry since labels do that now? Have you ever decided to go that direction?

Would you ever shoot a video with a shark?
