I had been curious about Tinted Windows for a while, since it is such a star-filled group. The band is made of up Hanson’s Taylor Hanson, Smashing Pumpkin’s James Iha, Fountains of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger, and Cheap Trick’s Bun E. Carlos. Since I missed the band at SXSW, I made sure to check them out when I heard that they were coming to Double Door. (more…)
This is the second time I’ve had the privilege to take photos of an OkGo show, and like the first time, they didn’t disappoint.
For those who aren’t aware of OkGo, they are the crazy band who had that treadmill video for “Here We Go Again” a while back. They are also Chicago boys, which makes me love them just a little more. (more…)
A quick one from last night’s show at Double Door.
It’s been a while since I’ve shot OkGo (the last time was almost a year ago, at Grant Park), and I almost forgot what a great show they put on. And by great show, I mean LOTS of confetti.
More to come soon!

He interacts with the audience by telling jokes or calling people out; shows are not a performance, they’re one big party. (more…)
