The Posies put on a great show last night at The Neptune with a really raucous set.


The Veils @ KEXP 11-14-2016

If you are not familiar with this band, you should definitely check them out. Finn Andrews is the son of original XTC member and Shriekback founder Barry Andrews. The Veils have an amazing sound. Highly recommended.


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.


The Posies at KEXP 5-27-2016

I was lucky enough to photograph one of my all-time favorite bands today, The Posies, at KEXP’s Gathering Space. What a great show it was!

Michael Shrieve @ KEXP 3-9-2016

Michael Shrieve-8Had the great pleasure to photograph legendary drummer Michael Shrieve at KEXP yesterday. If you get a chance, check out the archived interview on KEXP.ORG. Michael told some great stories as well as demonstrated some of the rich history of funk drumming. Really interesting.

Michael Shrieve is an American drummer, percussionist, and later, an electronic music composer. He is best known as the drummer in Santana, playing on their first eight albums from 1969 through 1974. His performance at the 1969 Woodstock festival, when he was 20 years old, made him one of the youngest musicians to perform at the festival. Shrieve’s drum solo during an extended version of “Soul Sacrifice” in the Woodstock film has been described as “electrifying”.
