CMJ 2010

I went to New York last week to shoot the 2010 CMJ film and music festival. It was amazing! 1200 bands playing over a lot of different venues all around New York. I didn't get around to shooting anywhere near as many bands as I would have liked too but it was still a great week. If you would like to see all of the photos you can here

I went and saw a few bands I knew and a lot of bands I hadn't heard of before. My highlights included finally getting to see Philadelphia Grand Jury (I've some how always managed to miss their shows over here) Bad Books (made up of Manchester Orchestra and Kevin Devine) were great, as was Johnny Flynn. As far as bands I hadn't heard of before I think my favourite new discoveries of the week were River City Extension, Death On Two Wheels and Dom. Anyway here are the photos.

Ben Kweller

I haven't shot a show in ages! But lat night I went to Ben Kweller and Delta Spirit it was an amazing show! I'm not really very happy with the BK shots but the Delta Spirit ones are ok I think. In a week and a half I'm heading over to New York to shoot CMJ so there will be a lot of photos coming up in a few weeks. Also Villains of Wilhelm (who if you follow this blog you will know I've shot a lot of) are calling it a day so I'll catch some shots of their last show as well :( Anyway... here are some photos from last night.
