One of my 2012 resolutions was to make a more concerted effort to shoot local bands and the fine folks of Scarlet Tanager were kind enough to let me shoot their show last night at the Old Rock House, opening for He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister.
A few months back, Jason of Encor.es raved on Twitter about Scarlet Tanager’s debut album, American Songbird, and after deciding to pick it up it didn’t take long before I was raving about it too. Seeing the six-piece group in person certainly was a treat too, coming off like the Arcade Fire and Rilo Kiley embodied with the spirit of childhood fairy tales.
With the band seemingly showing up more and more on concert lineups around town, make sure you have a chance to catch this local gem.
-Had to pass on shooting He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister to go take care of my sick wife. Enjoy some shots of them from their previous visit with The Blow.
-Scarlet Tanager’s puppet dominated video for “Tumbleweed.” If you don’t think it’s adorable, you have no soul.
