Wye Oak at The Neptune

Wye Oak the Baltimore based band opened for The National at the Neptune in Seattle.  This is the third time I had the chance to see Wye Oak. I was able to get some shots of them at Sasquatch this last spring as well as Seattle at the Crocodile.  There has been a movement it seems in Indie bands over the last 10 years of the “2-Piece”.

Wye Oak does something that is different. Lead guitarist Jenn Wasner play guitar as loud screaming instrument meant to bleed over everything including her touching and vulnerable lyrics. Here is a link to some photos of them at The Crocodile last August.

Mariachi El Bronx

The alter ego of LA based punk band (The Brox) Mariachi el Bronx put on a great show at Sasquatch 2011 and they have been hard touring all summer and this fall. Mariachi El Bronx is more than just a kitchey spin on punk.  It is a very good meld of English lyrics with a authentic Mexican sound.  Watch some of their videos and make up your own mind.

Here are some shots from their early summer Sasquatch performance.

Sasquatch 2011 Portraits

Sasquatch Music Festival has been a blast the last two years.  But for this year I thought I would try something different.  I eased off the throttle and shot less.  Stayed more hydrated and cataloged my film better.

 

But more importantly I shot portraits.  They were simply putting people behind the Yeti stage in some grape vines and grabbing a set of shots with my Mamiya medium format camera.  What seems nice about them is the square format.  It is a shape we don’t see all that often anymore.  The not so good part is the fact that the shadows are really harsh.  Next year I will need to bring a bounce!!

 

Thanks to all the artists that allowed me to shoot them.
