delicate cutters @ motorco garage

I still believe in the record label; that is, I believe in finding the small labels curating a select roster of bands and, if you like the bands they have, trusting them to find you new ones. One of those labels, for me, is Skybucket Records out of Birmingham, who used to release the Dexateens’…

every everything: the shoes

It’s not that I have a foot fetish, it’s that I really like shoes, and also I think that the way people stand is revealing. I’m never sure what they’re revealing until later, but it’s revealing. And when it’s photos of my shoes, it’s I was here, at this moment. So I took a lot…

every everything: a wrap-up

First, I am still so tired, you guys. I am so, so tired. I have a huge bruise-slash-scrapes-slash-lump-of-pain on my right shin from where the sound case fell out of the SUV trunk on Tuesday, I have a new scrape on my right knee from where I fell off the curb into 4th Street, I have an…

girl in a coma @ local 506

I know there are a ton of bands I say this about, but Girl in a Coma really are one of my favorites to shoot — such dynamic women, such clear love for what they’re doing on stage, and such great music. I can’t go wrong shooting them, and I can’t go wrong still being…

what did you expect? an archers of loaf concert documentary

promo photos: young///savage [austin, tx]

I did a set of impromptu interviews with musicians and others at Death To False Hope Fest II yesterday, which led to an impromptu photo shoot with Young///Savage from Austin, TX. We found the ground littered with playing cards, a sure sign that Magic Michael Casey had been around the night before, and sure enough,…

the district attorneys @ local 506

The District Attorneys have put out one of my favorite records of 2012 thus far, the doowop shimmering indie rock gem Slowburner, and they didn’t disappoint last night. They’ve got an amazing chemistry on stage, the harmonies of their singers are tight and clear, and the guitar work is incredible. I adored their set. I…

goat + faun @ jessee’s

I went to see my friend Robinson play yesterday. Sometimes he plays great blues slide guitar, and sometimes he plays wild stuff on his electric guitar with a loop pedal and sometimes his lovely lady Sara sings with him. They’re both pretty awesome.
