AM Taxi @ Double Door

This was part of Treaty of Paris’ Christmas show… they invited several bands that they were friends with to perform a few acoustic songs before their headlining set. And it was amazing. Since each band only played for about 15 minutes, the night was jam packed with great local music.

Adam & Chris from AM Taxi played three songs, including an original Christmas song, and as always were fantastic.

The Dog & Everything @ Double Door

The Dog & Everything @ Double Door

For the past ten years, at the end of the year, Lucky Boys Confusion puts together a few shows called Songs From A Scene. They invite some popular locals from the year to play… it’s a big tradition in the local scene, and it’s always interesting to see the line-up. This year was the last year it was being done, so, to celebrate, they brought back some bands that played the first few years. Even though most of the bands had been broken up, they reunited for one night, which made the show pretty epic.

I had to start editing with The Dog & Everything’s set. Not only the band that I pretty much learned photography on, they have the distinction of the band I’ve seen most times live, as well as being very good friends of mine to this day. Oh, the stories I could tell of tours and backstage antics, but I’ll save that for later. Even though the line-up was not completely original, it was amazing to once again hear the songs that I heard live every weekend for several years. It was made even better by having my old school concert buddies right next to me singing along as we did when we were 21.

Gaslight Anthem @ Double Door

Gaslight Anthem @ Double Door

Gaslight Anthem is one of those bands that I kept trying to photograph for months, but for some reason or another, just could not make it out to a show. When I saw they were playing a Lolla afterparty at Double Door, I jumped at the chance to see and shoot them. I do some house photography for Double Door, so it’s nice when bands play there because it’s easy for me to get passes (hey, nothing wrong with being lazy once in a while!). (more…)
