Dave Matthews Band

Dave Matthews

After trying for years I finally got in to shoot Dave Matthews Band. And it was everything I expected. Dave took note during the Saturday night introductions that Jiffy Lube Live was the last venue they played with late saxophonist LeRoi Moore (well, back in 2008 was Nissan Pavilion).

Christina Perri at 9:30 Club

Christina Perri

Christina Perri performed at 9:30 Club last night in DC. The crowd skewed mostly female, but I wasn’t complaining. Perri certainly has the chops. She seemed genuinely excited to be here in DC and performing for us. Check out my pics below.

Christina Perri

Christina is not quite halfway through a nationwide tour, and she’s showing no signs of exhaustion or boredom. She took quite a few opportunities to chat with the crowd and make us feel like we were at a party she was hosting, and she couldn’t wait to share some new (and favorite) songs with us.

You have of course heard (and can maybe sing) Jar of Hearts and probably Arms. I did notice the males in the audience clammed up when she performed A Thousand Years which is most famous for appearing in one (or more?) of the Twilight movies. The crowd was intensely mellow (is that possible? I just thought it sounded funny) and everyone there was riding the same vibe.

The Neighbourhood, Live in Baltimore

nbhd_02

The Neighbourhood, the band behind Sweater Weather played Ram’s Head Live in Baltimore last night. While they’re still earning their chops being on the road, they put on a killer show, and had the (young female) crowd singing along to every song. They kicked off with Silver and closed with Afraid. Here’s an interesting challenge: They asked for only black & white photography, so here we go.
