Bazzi Concert at The El Rey

The dudes over at Atlantic Records had me out to shoot the second of two sold out nights at the El Rey with Bazzi. I've been to a lot of shows since moving to LA, but none of them had a crowd as insane as this. You could hardly hear him over the masses screaming his word back to him. Bazzi is on tour across the US through the summer before heading across the pond to open for Justin Timberlake.

Janine Concert at Peppermint Club

Atlantic Records had me out to the Peppermint Club in LA to shoot Janine's first show with a full band. The set from the New Zealand R&B singer oozed sultriness.

Portugal. The Man Concert at White Oak Music Hall

On the brink of ACL, Portugal. The Man made a stop in Houston to play on the White Oak Music Hall lawn. Opting to project quips about their lack of on-stage banter and computer-generated sounds, the set was hyper-focused on the music; the phenomenal music. Not only were no computers used to make noise, the concert included a string, horn, and woodwind section. To make a good thing even better, Pink Floyd and Beatles covers also happened.

Young The Giant Concert at White Oak Music Hall

The first time I listened to Young The Giant they were still going by The Jakes and playing a nostalgic song about war with sweeping guitar solos that reverberated inside the walls of the Jeep I'd just gotten for my sweet 16. The first time I saw YTG live I was 19, drunk on summer (and tequila) slinging watermelon juice at Free Press Summer Fest 2012. The first time I shot YTG they were reopening FPSF 2016 after it was shut down from rain. The second time I shot YTG was last night for their last stop on the Home of the Strange Tour to a sold out crowd on the White Oak Music Hall lawn.

So you could say we go way back. As always, click 'em to see 'em big.
