ugh…

I have a ton of posts to catch up with here on tumblr. I have been slack on my summer blogging. Work and grad school at the same time can be time consuming.

Trying to keep the sun behind forced me into different angle as I was looking for a skyline shot of Charlotte the other week.

I made it out to see Dale Watson when he came through Charlotte last month to play at the Double Door Inn

Tara and I just so happened to be going down to Charleston to see friends on the exact same weekend as Shepard’s opening and we made our way around to check out all the murals and the show. Here are a few random Iphone and slr shots. I also linked the video below of Shepard talking about his art and working on these murals. As awesome as the murals are his gallery pieces were what really stood out to me.

New Malleus for Queens of the Stone Age. I love their work! I have a Deftones print from them hanging in our living room.

I had been doodling. I wanted to try out a new pen so I needed to draw something first. I wanted to give her hair like St Vincent but then I could not remember the whole shape of her wild hair.

I got to see Glasscloud two weeks ago as they opened for Letlive and they totally won me over as a fan that night at Greene St. CLub. Great performance and their sound really grabbed me. I have been listening to them on repeat since!

I have a full gallery up over at Shutter16 magazine  but I am gonna sprinkle some images individually here on my blog as well. 

For some reason the corporate radio in Charlotte likes to play the same old radio you hear everywhere else and occasionally they have concerts with bands that they don’t play under the guise of introducing to us “new” music. This past week they brought Crosses to town to play the Fillmore Charlotte. The irony is that everyone there to see Crosses knew very well who they were because Chino Moreno is the front man. Anyway, they were amazing live! So much more depth in their sound compared to the album alone. I made my way up front and grabbed some iphone shots.

Local Natives with Moses Sumney came through Charlotte recently and I was able to cover the show for Shutter 16 magazine. Check out the full gallery over at the site.
