i’m swimming in an ocean of unedited, un-posted images. ugh.
last night, i powered thru some images, so my mind could rest and i could finish the wedding images from last saturday at some point this lifetime. these are from the last 3 shows. grammar doesn’t count, right?
SOULIVE @ THE PARADISE ROCK CLUB
i’m not a fan of jam bands. i like music, but i like words. there are no words at a soulive show, unless they get a special guest to join them. no lie. I LOVE THIS BAND. amazing show. nigel hall was fire. a great dancing show. too bad i was alone and had a giant camera with me. otherwise i’d would have been ‘getting down with the get down’. I love the end of the slideshow in the article – a little video clip of nigel hall’s james brown split.

30 SECONDS TO MARS @ THE HOUSE OF BLUES
let’s talk about jared leto, shall we? management emailed saying we could only shoot the first 3 songs from the soundboard and aisle. no pit. no problem. once we got there, security said we could shoot the whole show, no flash. no pit. no problem. so the photography posse stayed for most of the show, respecting the rules in place. towards the end, leto looked over…ran over starts screaming at me and my camera. i’m confused. thought i imagined it. moments later, he’s got his hand on another photographer’s lens, spraying his fury on him. ha! whatever dude. i just spent 2 hours sweating blood and tears at your show to get great images of your band and that’s how you treat me (us)? this ain’t hollywood. i’m no paparazzi. you’re a douche. there, i said it. freedom of speech, son. he was a douche the whole show, really. but i actually enjoyed the gig. oh well.

a little leto rage? sure nuff. he was so mad. i couldn’t figure out why. but i left and missed the end of the show.
SNOOP DOGG @ THE HOUSE OF BLUES
the following night was snoop dogg. last minute credentials granted. i mean, one-hour-before-showtime last minute. and i actually listen to snoop, so i packed my bag and headed for the train. why was snoop 90+ minutes late? scheduled to go on at 9:30…he took the stage after 11. kind of expected. but still annoying. good show though. you can’t go wrong with the chronic 2001′s NEXT EPISODE.
