Yes, that beck. The one who hadn’t played in St. Louis in fourteen years. Do yourself a favor and read Bryan Sutter’s RFT review of the show here.

Cody ChesnuTT at Plush, 6.4.2014

I had no idea Cody ChesnuTT is such an energetic performer. He’s incredibly entertaining live, and not just on a musical level — he’s got moves. See him whenever you can.

The Flaming Lips at The Pageant, 6.10.2014

I’ve seen The Flaming Lips six times in the past few years, and each has been a special experience — few bands manage to pack so much good music (and visual overstimulation) into any given evening.

Slayer at The Pageant, 5.15.2014

Bucket list? You bet. Slayer is a beast of a band, and a fun-but-tricky shoot given the intense lighting and active band members. Paul Bostaph was hardest to get; his high-rise drum setup wasn’t easily penetrated. Still, I’m happy with the images I had at the end of the night.

Local Natives at The Pageant, 4.24.14

Los Angeles’ Local Natives are a fascinating group. Their indie rock can be just as pretty as Fleet Foxes, or as swaggering as Foals—they aren’t limited by one sound, rather, they revel in the opportunities afforded to them. And they happen to be electric on-stage, which never hurts.
