Came across this photo, while editing my Aperture library, of The Black Keys from December 2010, when they played The Holiday Hootenanny.
A couple recent photos from a Middle Brother concert. If you haven’t given the Middle Brother album a listen yet, I’d suggest it. It’s good — there’re a couple skunks on the album — but they’re a good one to see live.
The last photo is Dynamite Walls at Belly Up.
A few weeks ago, went camping with the red head, her mom and a few others. Absolutely incredible. Although, incredibly windy. These were from the Mobilization Station™, the real photos will be up soon.
Been on a little bit of a concert terror lately with the lady and friends and family. 3 concerts in 4 days, this week with two more coming next week.
Some of the highlights so far have been Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Delta Spirit, and The Avett Brothers. Then Sunday, while the parents were on their annual California vacation, saw Local Natives—a must see and Tuesday night was Phoenix, down in San Diego. Got to say, that show kind of blew me away. I was expecting a good show, but those Frenchies took it above and beyond. Showmen, those guys, showmen.
And how ’bout those Local Natives, man … if you get a chance to see them in your town, or neighboring, I highly recommend it. High energy, instrument swapping, dancing—everything good. Go, have some suds and a good time.
Anyhoot, enough of the gushing and to the reason for all this gabble. I love taking pictures at the concerts. Almost always, I’m shooting with the Mobilization Station. Sometimes I end up with some gems, sometimes I do not—that’s just how it goes. I’m going to start putting up the my favorites in the Flickr filing cabinet. If you look over here, this will be the concert photos directory. Starting with Phoenix from Tuesday—unfortunately I didn’t get anything worthwhile at Local Natives.
With The Black Keys on Monday night, hopeful to add some more soon. From one Akron boy to another two—really looking forward to this one.
One of my favorite parts of my gig is having to go out treasure hunting for various projects and photo shoots. While in the fox holes and hot boxes that are junk stores and antique shops, I’ll snap shots with the Mobilization Station. I don’t always post them to the Mobile BS Report, but it just so happened that this is one of my all time favorite photos I’ve ever taken. It’s a toss up with this one…
Forgot to check the year on this Hamilton MFG’Co. type drawer is from, but it caught my eye from three aisles away. As soon as I was toe-to-toe with this beast, I was staring straight down all the drawer handles. The in-your-face nameplate handles and how they look infinite, the weathered wood and drawer labels were all it took to capture this moment forever. And there you go.
Here’s to junkin and type.
