John Doe & His Rock ‘n Roll Band w/ Jesse Dayton @ KEXP 6/29/2016

John Doe, former singer of the L.A. punk band X, rocked out at KEXP today with guitarist Jesse John DoeDayton.  He played five songs from his new album for a live video feed on Cheryl’s show.  Great time!  I wanted to take the band’s picture under the new KEXP sign on the side of the building, but a) they were in a hurry and b) the sign is way up high so there’s no real way to get the band close up with the image.  So… I tried out the new Photoshop Smart Masking and, hey, it worked really well.  A bit of blending and here you go.

 


Kevin Bacon at Triple Door

20160615-Bacon-_ASL1684I saw Kevin Bacon with The Bacon Brothers last night at Triple Door in Seattle. Honestly, I went because I thought it would be cool to see one of my favorite actors in person playing music. Having never heard the band’s music, I didn’t know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised.

The music was 70’s influenced Americana and the songwriting was quite strong. Kevin played guitar, hand percussion and harmonica. He really seemed to be enjoying himself. The band was extremely talented and tight. All in all, it was a really fun show. One of the highlights was when Kevin said he had always wanted to tour in a rock and roll tour bus.  When they finally rented one, he fell in love with it.  And, as he said, “What do you do when you fall in love?  You write a song.  The song is called Bus”.  Glad I went. Here are some of my images from the show…
