You might recognize a few of these guys from my many photos of The Dog & Everything and Last Fast Action. But, since those pictures, they’ve changed it up 100%: they put down the guitar, tossed out the bass, and lost the drums. As Tall Animals, they are focusing on upbeat, danceable electronica. It’s quite a shift, but it’s great seeing something so inspired. Plus, it’s super easy to dance to.

Check out Tall Animals on Facebook, iTunes, or in real life at the annual Fall Formal on November 24th.

There are just some bands that are FUN. They’re bands that have an amazing stage show, are quite unique, have lots of charisma, and are always a blast to shoot. They’re bands that whenever they are in town, if I am able to, I get a photopass, regardless of how many other times I’ve photographed them.

Dragonforce.
Semi-Precious Weapons.
Foxy Shazam.

And, of course, Steel Panther.

This was a sold-out show, so obviously, I’m not the only one that thinks Steel Panther is worth hanging out with for an evening.

The Naked and Famous opened up for Crystal Castles at the HOB Lolla afterparty a while ago. Despite not knowing much about them at the time (although I see them popping up everywhere now!), I really enjoyed their set.

Crystal Castles played with the The Naked and Famous at House of Blues for a Lollapalooza “after party” (even though it was the night before Lolla). A moody and high-energy show, the set was visually beautiful and entertaining, even if it was difficult to shoot.

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).
