Washed Out

Air + Style Festival 2018

Last weekend, LA was treated to Air + Style, the global snowboard and skateboard competition and music festival that features world-class action sports athletes and musicians during a two-day event series with stops around the world including Los Angeles, Australia, and Beijing.

For the most part, I focused on the music. It's been a long time since I've been to a festival where it's been possible to see every single artist; two stages and no overlap meant no tough decisions on which set to see and which set to miss. The lineup was a stellar blend of musicians I love, have and haven't seen, and a few I'd never heard of. Sometimes, less really is more.

Washed Out Concert at White Oak Music Hall

There were a lot of cool things about shooting the Houston stop of Washed Out's Mister Mellow Tour:

  1. Almost five years ago to the day, I used the song "Feel It All Around" in an admittedly shitty video I made of my friends and myself floating the San Marcos River.
     
  2. This weekend marked exactly one year of shooting at White Oak Music Hall for Pegstar Concerts and the venue alike.
     
  3. The visuals projected were dope. Taking from the visual album released alongside the audio album, various forms of animation (including collage, claymation, and real-time projection tracking) made the concert a holistic way to experience Mister Mellow and its themes. 
     
  4. They sold that mf out!
