Company of Thieves @ House of Blues

It’s been years since I’ve photographed a concert. On nights that concerts happen, I’m usually photographing a wedding, prepping for a wedding, exhausted from shooting a wedding, or editing a wedding.

But, when Company of Thieves announced they were getting back together for a small tour, I was all over it. It had been years since I had seen them, and I alternated between wanting to give them hugs and photographing the heck out of the show. In the end, I got to do both… and you can see some of the photos below (and thankfully, I wasn’t quite as out of practice as I had feared!).

Lindsey Stirling @ The Vic

Honestly, I hadn’t heard of Lindsey Stirling before this show.My friends got a last minute call for the opening slot, and I went to The Vic to see/photograph their set. But, since I was already there, I stayed to check out Lindsey. And I’m so glad I did. I’ve seen so many bands and concerts, that I love when I get surprised by something different. I was in awe of Lindsey’s energy, style, talent, and interaction with the audience. I wasn’t able to stay for the whole show, but I definitely would love to see more!

Tall Animals @ House of Blues

You might recognize a few of these guys from my many photos of The Dog & Everything and Last Fast Action. But, since those pictures, they’ve changed it up 100%: they put down the guitar, tossed out the bass, and lost the drums. As Tall Animals, they are focusing on upbeat, danceable electronica. It’s quite a shift, but it’s great seeing something so inspired. Plus, it’s super easy to dance to.

Check out Tall Animals on Facebook, iTunes, or in real life at the annual Fall Formal on November 24th.
