Andrew Bird – 2/28/09

andrew birdandrew bird

Wow, it’s been over a year since I last uploaded the site. No, I wasn’t dead. No, I didn’t stop photographing concerts. Yes, I was a lazy pile. I think I have pictures from about 15 shows; I’ll try to upload the best 5-7 or so. Or maybe I’ll get bored doing actual work and post more than that.

Just so you know, the site was sketchily hacked or something a while back and my Google results were all messed up, but I’ve got it all cleared up now. There is no malware hosted on this site…I promise.

Also, if you looked at this site before, you caught a glimpse of the only live pictures of Monsters of Folk on the internet! Unfortunately, now there are hundreds of others.

Anyway, on to the photos.  You can see 29 pictures from the Andrew Bird show at Slowdown on February 28, 2009 HERE. I don’t know what was up at this show, but I did some really weird stuff which resulted in lots of (intentionally?) blurry pictures. I really like how a few of them turned out though/

DeVotchKa with Born in the Flood & Basia Bulat – 5/25/08

An update…finally! I seem to have been in a winter concert hibernation, but things appear to be looking up, with at least a couple shows in the coming weeks. Anyway, here are some pictures from the Barack Obama rally at Slowdown featuring Bright Eyes, M. Ward, and Jim James, among others. There are 85 pictures HERE.

Slumber Party Bands – 11/17/07

So these pictures only took FOREVER to put up. I’m in a posting marathon right now. First up are these three, all from one awesome night of Capgun Coup (26 photos HERE), Coyote Bones (20 photos HERE), and Cursive (a whopping 66 photos HERE).

If you want to see the old-style HTML pages with savable pictures, just get to them from the links on the left side of this page.

Up next, Okkervil River, and LCD Soundsystem / The Arcade Fire…stay tuned.

Capgun Coup – 8/21/07

So I finally saw Capgun Coup, and of course took a bunch of pictures. Here are some that didn’t suck (and maybe some that do). You can see all 34 of them HERE.

Or you can view them in a fancy flash slideshow thingy HERE.Подаръци

Slowdown Opening – 6/8-6/9/07

So I went to both nights of the Slowdown opening, but I went late the first night and missed Capgun Coup, which kinda sucks, but anyway, I do have pictures of Art In Manila, The Terminals, Ladyfinger, Bear Country, and Neva Dinova. You can see all 57 pictures HERE.

Bright Eyes – 6/7/07

After weeks (was it that long? it felt like it) without my computer, I now have a new computer (it was FREE!) and can finally put these pictures up. These are from the “secret” Bright Eyes show on June 7, 2007 at the brand new Slowdown in Omaha, NE. There are 35 pictures HERE.

Pictures from the official opening are coming soon.Икониикони
