I don’t even know who these bands are at the moment, but I’m at the airport and wanted to share them with you. I was at the Continental Club tonight, and, as I begged on Twitter the other day, I just wanted a dark, dingy rock club with some old guys and guitars.
I guess the good thing about this gig is that it’s expanding my ability to shoot different kinds of music.
The Palm Door last night was a lot of dance, hip-hop, rap, electronic, and several DJs. The Fool’s Gold family sure puts on a fun show – even if the lighting was bad and I could barely push my way to the stage half the time.
Here we go:
The Suzan (ps, these girls from Japan were peppy and simply ADORBZ – and pretty darn good):
Last night, I was assigned to the Havana Bar in downtown Austin to shoot what turned out to be two totally separate venues that I was responsible for covering. Inside were smaller, quirkier bands, and outside in the backyard? Death metal.
Let’s just say I am going to search in earnest for earplugs for today to make sure I don’t go completely deaf during this trip.
I shot ten bands last night, so clearly, I’m missing a few in this post. However, time’s running short this morning – I’m being called in to cover another photog’s shoot this afternoon. I’ll be at the Dot Com stage in the Austin Convention Center this afternoon from 1-6 and at the Ale House from 8-2.
