My Best Photos Of 2013

10:11 am by


Photography has its ups and downs. Granted, significantly more ups than downs of course, but there are a few downs that are worth griping about. One of the major ones is that I take a couple hundred photos per show, send in a group at the end of the night, and I’m lucky to get four printed per article. You do the math; that leaves a whole shitload of photos per shoot taking up space on my macbook until they’re retired to the graveyard know as my external hard drive, sitting there getting e-dust all over them for the rest of eternity (or until my hard drive breaks).

Well, after a couple hours of searching through my photos, I’ve come up with my favorite shots from the past year. 2013 was an interesting year of shooting, allowing me to stand in photo pits during sets by such a varied roster of bands and artists. I was a few feet from both Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake; survived mosh pits at Anthrax, Rancid and Megadeath shows; fought for spots against hipsters at Yo La Tengo, Wilco, Vampire Weekend and Snow Patrol; rubbed elbows with Houston hip-hop royalty at Lil Wayne, Ice Cube, Cypress Hill, Public Enemy and Kendrick Lamar; got my classic rock fix with Heart, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Monkees and Fleetwood Mac; and was fortunate enough to photograph acts I never thought I would like Blondie, Iggy Pop, Cyndi Lauper, Ted Nugent, Juanes, Brad Paisley, Fall Out Boy, The Jonas Brothers, Courtney Love, Black Flag, The Moving Sidewalks, The Cure and so many more in between.

It’s easy to say that I’ve been lucky to have been afforded the opportunity to be able to catch so many great bands, but I’ve worked for it — I’ve worked hard as hell. I hope you enjoy the following gallery, as I’m as proud of each and every single photograph I take. I’ve taken many more than what are represented here, but these are my favorites from the past 12 months.

Dave Matthews Band & Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes @ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

10:03 am by

Dave Matthews Band

As I’m coming down from this Summerfest high I;ve been on since Saturday, I thought I’d catch up a bit on reviews before I start posting the loads of pictures from this past weekend. I had the opportunity to catch Dave Matthews Band return to the road when they started their tour off here in Houston at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. As they always do, DMB brought along a solid choice of opener in freak-folkers Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes.

Roger Waters @ Toyota Center

Roger Waters @ Toyota Center

Last night, I had the opportunity to see Roger Waters, bassist and vocalist for legendary classic rock group Pink Floyd, for the third time. First, I caught the Dark Side Of The Moon tour when it hit Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion several years back, next when Waters brought The Wall to Houston for the first time two years ago, and finally last night with another go-around of The Wall at the Toyota Center. While mostly the same as the first time, Waters changed the show up just enough to keep me enthralled again.

UtopiaFest Preview: Suzanna Choffel

11:42 am by

Austin songstress Suzanna Choffel has been entrancing audiences for over five years using her smoky vocals to tackle a blend of roots, jazz, and soul. If you’re a festival-going Texan, you’ve likely already caught her at one of the majors like Austin City Limits or Old Settler’s Music Festival – so seeing her in a more intimate, mellow setting like Utopia Fest should be a treat. Catch her Saturday at 2:30 on the Arrowhead Stage.
