Bleachers at 9:30 Club

Jack Antonoff
We had a great time at the Bleachers concert at 9:30 Club. Jack Antonoff (of fun.) brought a ton of energy and had the young crowd jumping and singing along. The way they cut into I want to get better at the end was masterful. It was an unforgettable evening. Click below for pics, and our snaplapse video.

Marvel Universe Live!

Red Skull and Capt America face off

I took the family to witness Marvel Universe Live at the Verizon Center on Sunday afternoon, and it was epic! The comic pages come to life as your favorite Marvel heroes battle it out with special effects and lots of action. I’m a fan of Feld productions, such as Ringling Bros Circus, Disney on Ice, and of course Monster Jam. But this event was unlike anything I’d ever seen. If you have a kid, or any fan of the Marvel Universe, you need to experience it like this.

One of my favorite acts to shoot, ever returned to the DC area this weekend, and I was there taking pics.

I got to shoot Slash near the beginning of my photographic career, and it was great getting to revisit such a milestone. Check out my pics below.

aka Spider-Man

Interview with Moe Alafrangy, bringing Spider-Man to life in the upcoming Marvel Universe Live coming to the Verizon Center in September.

We wanted to talk to Moe because he is a Northern Virginia native, but also because he’s Spider-Man, and it’s been awhile since we got to interview a super hero. Moe grew up in Falls Church and Alexandria, and went Annandale High School. As a kid, Moe loved Spider-Man and he wanted to be nimble and flexible like his hero. He got started in Tae Kwon Do at the age of nine, and completed his first black belt at age 14. Moe was drawn to Tae Kwan Do and the martial art tricking it features.

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.

Skinny Puppy at the Fillmore Silver Spring

Skinny Puppy

Words and Photos by Joshua Hoover

A day in the life of a concert photographer – The Joshua Edition. Get photopass, go through security while displaying the photo pass and unzipping all the camera gear with an impatient crowd behind, get in, find the side of the stage and then hover near the stage. When the lights go down we shooters scurry like cockroaches to the front of the stage, grab a quick snap of the set list and then take up our positions and wait. Once the band starts to take the stage start shooting like mad because after the third song ends so does the glamorous life of being inside the barrier come to a halt and we are cleared away, easy.

Rob Zombie in DC

11272013 - Rob Zombie (5)

Photos and words by Joshua Hoover

They stood in the cold, long line that wrapped around the block, waiting to get in as soon as doors opened to snag the perfect view. The crowd lined the rails and zealously guarded their spots on the floor. All faces were aglow with excitement. They ranged from kids as young as 6 to the most hardcore of grandparents.
