Sleigh Bells at the Fillmore in Charlotte, NC: April 28th, 2014

photoCaught Sleigh Bells in Charlotte earlier this week and it was a great show. It was short at just under an hour but tons of energy and a great performance for what was not the greatest turn out. 15 minutes before opening there were only half a dozen people on line to get in but it filled up pretty good before the show actually started. The good news for me was I got right up front for some good video in a position where I wasn’t holding it up and bothering anyone behind me. The show was super loud and the camera couldn’t handle it well but the video is great if you can deal with the distortion and occasional channel issues. I got the whole show uploaded to a playlist on YouTube… Read the rest of this entry »

DellWorld 2012, Camp Freddy Concert at ACL

DellWorld 2012 SetlistAt DellWorld 2012, the evening event was at Austin City Limits and the description was very odd and read only “Camp Freddy and featured guests from Linkin Park”. I’d never heard of Camp Freddy before, so like many, was in for a big surprise treat!

While the “core band” consists of Dave Navarro (guitar. Jane’s Addiction/Red Hot Chili Peppers), Billy Morrison (guitar. Billy Idol), Matt Sorum (drums. Guns N’ Roses/Velvet Revolver), Donovan Leitch, Jr. (vocals) and Chris Chaney (bass. Jane’s Addiction/Alanis Morissette). We were also treated to Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray), Sully Erna (Godsmack), Fred Durst (Limp Bizkit) , Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction/Porno for Pyros) and finally Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington (Linkin Park). Unbelievable. I wasn’t so close and only had my phone but I was in the front row of the balcony which made it easy for me to hold pretty steady for some video. Some full songs and some partials, this is what I got…

Update: Amy Price took some amazing pictures of the show and posted them here on Flickr.

Pumped for Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2012

Virgin Mobile FreeFest is on its way this October 6th. I’ve gone the last couple of years and it is always an awesome time. This year, I’m most excited to see Jack White, Ben Folds Five and Skrillex. A few other bands on the list are interesting too, but most I’d not heard of. As a Spotify user, I’ve created a collaborative playlist containing the top few songs by each band in an effort to make sure I don’t regret making my way over to one of the smaller stages to catch a future favorite. Check out the playlist here!

In year’s past I’ve taken lots of photos and video. (Nine Inch Nails, 2008 Show).  I’ll be doing the same again this year (may need a third battery, I always seem to run out of juice).
