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.
