Caribou Live at The Clubhouse October 9th, 2010

The concert was scheduled to commence at 8:00pm on October 9th, but in true live-performance fashion, the show began at 9:45pm with Emerald. The set-up was sluggish and the band was the opposite of fascinating from the start. The group was a collection of three young guys (who did not even introduce themselves), and the only possible good quality about them was their guitar player.

The songs were monotonous, supplying the crowd with a cyclic serenade which could also be known as a headache. The least to say is that the concert started out almost two hours behind schedule with a particularly poor opening act.

The audience portrayed loyalty though, sticking through the struggling opening band to see the main men perform. And dedicated as they were, Caribou took stage with gracious smiles as a, “ thank you for waiting” commemoration. Dressed in all white and accompanied by their psychedelic background stood Dan Snaith, Ryan Smith, Brad Weber, and John Schmersal. Snaith settled with his drum set and his keyboard at the front of the stage while the other members became acclimated with their instruments as well.

I’m really excited to see Warpaint live after missing them the last few times they’ve come through town. After constant touring, the buzz is finally catching up to them, and with good reason.

Avi Buffalo Fall Tour

18 Aug

Avi Buffalo is the adopted name of Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg, an 18 year-old singer/songwriter and guitarist from Long Beach, CA. Avi Buffalo is also the name of the band he formed with friends and like-minded collaborators Sheridan Riley (drums) and Arin Fazio (bass).  As described by Pitchfork, “Avi Buffalo seem graceful beyond their years as songwriters. As many starkly intimate moments as they muster, a few of their tunes unfurl into near-epic lengths, gallantly breezing through moods and motifs. Snatches of Wilco’s easy early-2000s amble, Built to Spill’s curly fretwork, and Shins-y shuffle turn up everywhere here, occasionally all at once.”

Had the opportunity to see my friends band, sleepwalker, play at the clubhouse the other night and captured a few photos from their set. If you haven’t had the chance to see them play live or hear them, definitely check them out. I really enjoyed the high energy set and look forward to them playing bigger and better shows in the future.

There haven’t been many instances where I wake up the day after a show and say ‘WOW’ but that was the case this morning. Riding the wave of the post Coachella; Phoenix will definitely be getting some amazing shows and hopefully they can live up to the billing such as this.

Enjoy The Photos.

No Age

9 Apr

Over the past few months I’ve had the chance to work with some pretty cool bands but none being as authentic and genuine as NO AGE. I had the chance to photograph them while they played at the now dead Modified Arts in Phoenix, AZ for a magazine called Overt.

Here’s the photo from the shoot.
