American jam band Phish performed to the utter delight of a stupified sold-out crowd at Merriweather Post Pavilion recently, and I was there taking photos and spacing-out to the music and getting into the groove.
Courtney Barnett is the best friend everyone wishes they had — deadpan witty, desperately honest. Her songs grapple with the sorts of emotions familiar to the current generation, that balancing of self-doubt, anxiety, and the expectations for success in a world set against often overwhelming challenges.
If the term eccentricity could be personified, Perry Farrell just may be that person. He has managed to do everything in his own unique manner over a musical career that spans more than 30 years, including two major bands — Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros, a solo career, and the creation of the world famous concert festival, Lollapalooza.
Just a few weeks ago, experimental rock trio Yeasayer released Erotic Reruns, the band’s fifth studio album. Roughly a few weeks from today, Yeasayer performs at 9:30 Club on Friday, July 12, and you can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.
Phish hit the road for the summer on a 26-date tour that culminates with the band’s traditional Labor Day run of shows in Commerce City, Colorodo. Along the way, guitarist Trey Anastasio and company stop at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Saturday, June 22, and there are very few seats remaining!
On June 7, Perry Farrell released Kind Heaven, his third solo studio album, and also launched the Kind Heaven Orchestra World Tour. The highly anticipated tour arrives at City Winery DC on Wednesday, June 19. Very limited tickets remain for the show!
Another of my rock n’ roll dreams became a reality yet again. I had the pleasure of finally photographing one of my personal favorite rock bands. The hard-hitting progressive metal machine known as Mastodon stopped at MECU Pavilion in Baltimore recently, and I was there taking photos.
