Several months ago, I shot a few quick promos of the amazing AM Taxi before their House of Blues show. For some reason, it’s taken me this long to post a few of my favorites. Whoops.

Oh, and if you’re in the Chicagoland area, make sure you go to Wicker Park Fest on July 24th to see them (and make sure to say hi to me while you’re there).

WARNING

For the record, I would like to state that this was not my idea…. but I love it.

And you all thought the Treaty of Paris Currents release show was crazy… you haven’t seen them during promos.

Treaty of Paris Promo

Joey Marcantonio

I know Joey through a mutual friend, but we met for the first time when we did these promos.  Joey is a great guy, who just loves music.  We had a lot of fun talking and getting to know each other during the shoot. I’m looking forward to working with him more in the future.

Joey just released a CD – you can download it for free (or just listen to it) here.

I haven’t been posting much, but I have been taking pictures like crazy (which is the reason I haven’t been around!). I thought I’d post just one tonight, and make it something different… something not live.

This is from a promo session I had with a singer/songwriter this past weekend…. we shot in an indie coffeehouse that he’s been going to, writing in, and performing at for the past eight years. I love when locations have meaning, other than just being “cool.”

More to come later… I have lots of fun shots from this session.

The Frantic @ The Metro

The Frantic opened up for AM Taxi and Billy Talent for this show. The whole thing was very unexpected, actually. Poison The Well was slated to play the show, but sadly, their van (and gear) got stolen that morning, and they obviously couldn’t make it…. so, Frantic got a call that afternoon about their availability, and before they knew it, they were on the bill.

It was a great show. Lots of punk, lots of rock, and just genuinely good bands. It’s rare that the entire lineup of a show is good, but this was definitely one of those shows. (more…)
