NOBUNNY, Shannon & The Clams, Hunx & His Punx @ The Echoplex - 3/20/2014

This post is primarily going to be focused around the NOBUNNY shots that I took at this show.  His animated dance moves and ridiculous wardrobe choices make for the most perfect subject matter to shoot.  I had a ton of fun at this show too, all three of these bands are insanely talented and a must see for you Punk/Rock-N-Roll/Pop lovers out there.

These were the best of best from that night of craziness and I'm super stoked how these photos turned out.

Jungle @ The Echo - 3/17/2014

First LA appearance for this awesome funk and soul filled band out of the UK.  When I first heard Jungle's debut EP "The Heat" about 6 or so months ago I wasn't even sure if this was an actual band.  It sort of had that sound like it could have been produced in someone's bedroom on an MPC, full of samples or self recorded instrumentation.  Adding to the mystery is the lack of information about the band or people behind it out on the interwebs, not to mention the cover of the EP being two black men lounging back on a couch decked out in full matching Adidas jumpsuits so you can only really assume that this must be the band.  What's the point of all this?  I'm not really sure, and honestly I don't really care.

To my pleasant surprise and delight, they ended up being a full 5-piece band with the two main front-men (worth mentioning that they are white) as well as the back-up vocalist that you hear in the recordings, live and in person.  This show is definitely near the top of the list so far this year.  Amazing performance, can't wait to see them again and to hear a full length from this band.

Nomads In LA

So a few years ago I started a set on my Flickr called "Nomads In LA" which is basically just a set of photos featuring random adventures around LA shooting random shit or just things I'm doing and happen to have my camera along, some might call it street photography.

Since I got my X-E2 that pretty much never leaves my shoulder I have started shooting a lot more street shit.  This camera is so much more discrete and captures the most aesthetically pleasing photos so instead of just keeping these photos hidden away in my hoard of stuff that I'll never post I'm going to start doing a weekly or bi-weekly blog post called, you guessed it, "Nomads In LA" that will feature the best of these photos or really just whatever I feel like sharing.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy experiencing these moments and capturing them and the people/places that are a part of them.
