Massive, glittery explosions of pop cannot be denied (though confusing cultural messages can be). Beautiful girl, bubblegum ideas. In any case was a pleasure to take some photos of Taylor Swift tonight. Pics and review tomorrow via the Pitch! All photos by April Fleming
Not since my friend Becca wore out the VHS of "The Chain [reunion]" in high school have I been so into Fleetwood Mac. Total pleasure getting to take some photos of the original lineup at the Sprint Center tonight. The review by the lovely Natalie Gallagher will be up at The Pitch in the morning.
I had the total pleasure last night of getting to take some photos of one of my favorite bands, TV on the Radio. The show was a bit short at around 70 minutes, but the brevity was the only thing to complain about at a show packed with great music. Show review up at the Pitch.
The Folk Alliance conference is a beast. A huge, sprawling conference of and for folks and roots musicians, FAI can boast around 3,000 attendees this year (holy shit monster conference). It's sheer size and the number of performances make it an impossible feat to really even get a handle on. You certainly can only see a small fraction of the performances, but part of why it's wonderful is that everyone has an entirely unique experience. The Pitch has been offering great coverage of the beast here,my Wednesday night recap is here. Last night's here.
Anyway, offering up a handful of my favorite shots from the past couple of trips to FAI for those who may be interested. I love this event! Will keep returning as often as I can.
Includes photos of Destroy Nate Allen, Hembree, The Grisly Hand, The Blackbird Revue, AY Musik, Nicholas St. James, Madisen Ward & the Mama Bear, The Howlin' Brothers and Good Time Charley.
