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!).

Company of Thieves @ Double Door

I was super lucky to be able to see Company of Thieves twice in just a few month’s time span. Honestly, they’re one of those bands that I could watch every night. Love them.

If you’re in Chicago, they’re headlining Sausage Fest on June 3rd (and my buddies Treaty of Paris are playing the Fest on the 2nd, too), come on out. I’ll be there!

Company of Thieves @ The Metro

It’s been WAY too long since I’ve seen Company of Thieves. In fact, I even planned a trip to California around this concert because I didn’t want to miss them again. And I’m so glad I did because this was their first time headlining Metro, and as any Chicago band or regular concert-attendee knows, headlining Metro is a big deal. It’s the place where many Chicagoians see one of their first concerts, and is certainly one of the most historic venues in the city.

CoT is going on tour next month, so check out their tour dates, and definitely go if they’re near you. If I planned a vacation around their show, you know they’re good.
