Dillinger Escape Plan: Thee Parkside SF: Aug 13

The Dillinger Escape Plan brought a rare show to San Francisco's very own intimate and loved for it's "small size", venue where you can get your favorite band's sweat on your face or a foot to the head if you're lucky, on their latest tour of only smaller capacity sites.  

 

TDEP, who are on the verge of launching their sixth studio record Dissociation, due out October 14, 2016  just recently announced that they are going on “an indefinite hiatus” after the tour cycle for the upcoming album.  Their next and possibly last tour is set to run across the US and Europe before TDEP, just puts on the brakes for a bit.  Check out more show coverage on the full review on BAM Magazine!

Bay Area loved NAME opened the night...

Cobi: Bottom of the Hill, San Francisco, CA

I had a chance to sit and chat with Cobi prior to the night’s performance, and do a little lighthearted interview which he actually didn’t know was scheduled, but humbly endured...

What I found out was that the Minnesota born singer, Cobi is very modest, he didn’t gloat during the interview about winning a MTV Video Music Award (with his former band Gentlemen Hall) or how he just came off the road as a guest singer with the huge progressive trance group Above & Beyond, playing some of the world’s best venues such as Sydney Opera House and Royal Albert Hall…

Royal Jelly Jive came out Swingin' at SF's Independent!  The day was a special one for this fantastic group, (if you haven't caught these guys.. you must!), not only were they just featured at Bottle Rock 2016 but their latest album "Stand Up" also dropped today!  I was onsite to witness the magic these fine musicians bring to the stage and got an exclusive interview as well.  Check out more coverage on BAM Magazine.  

With support by Growwler & Kendra McKinley... this was a night to feel the music and dance!

Mark Blasquez: Musician Promo Session 1

I had the opportunity to work with Bay Area based musician Mark Blasquez recently as he is working on multiple upcoming and on-going projects.  We strove to capture a few shots to be used in his upcoming EP as well as portraits for his acoustic and publishing projects.   Finding that we had a  common ground of artistic ideas and vocabulary made this a great shoot and looks like we will be collaborating in the future.  Below are a few shots from our day...
