("Say Anything [Else]" by Cartel)
Remember when it was cool to open up your CD player while it was mid play to see it spin like a million miles any hour? Picture that as my life. 'Been really busy. Photographed Days Difference, Cartel, We The Kings, and All Time Low on Saturday, went tubing on the Potomac River on Sunday, photographed Stereo Skyline, The Bigger Lights, Friday Night Boys, This Providence, and Hey Monday on Monday, and then yesterday I spent the day at Warped Tour. What does that all translate to? Something like 3,000 photos and little sleep. I love it. Still working on photos. Here's a little sample.
(song by A Rocket To The Moon)
So... I am by no means "famous," but this was kind of cool. Worn Free clothing was mentioned on Barricade Buzz a few months back, and they offered to send me one of their shirts. I wasn't sure what to expect, but they hooked me up with a Debbie Harry "PUNK" t-shirt... and I'm not going to lie, I love it. I ended up wearing it to my interview with A Rocket To The Moon at the 9:30 Club, and snapped a photo of the band. The folks at Worn Free happened to notice it, and added it to their blog. I'm a rockstar now (not by any means). Check it out: Worn Free blog. (warning: I am NOT a model.)
("Josey" by Hey Monday)
So back in April I had the pleasure of interviewing a band called Hey Monday when they opened for Fall Out Boy on the Believers Never Die Part Duex Tour. It was a pretty cool experience for me since we shot the footage for Barricade Buzz on their tour bus; a first for me.
They're a female led pop-punk group from Florida with a sound that's comparable to the likes of Paramore. They released their first album, Hold On Tight, last year that features the very talented vocals of lead singer, Cassadee Pope.
Anyways, I was checking out their page today and came across this video, which was shot at the show I was photographing at. Sadly, I'm not in the footage, but it was still cool to see nonetheless.
Here's video from the Merriweather Post Pavilion:
