While I haven’t been in the concert photography game for that long, it’s been interesting to see how much can change for a band in one year. Actually, for The Head & the Heart, it’s only been nine months since selling out Blueberry Hill and earlier in the week the Seattle band filled up the Pageant with their return.
I still feel questionable every time I say it, but Black Girls are awesome. To be honest, I think this crew of funky soul popsters was my favorite band to shoot this evening. Plus, the bassist summoned some serious mojo from all his hip shaking. Take a listen to “Broadway” and I challenge you to not nod along.

Hailing from Portland, Drew Grow and the Pastors’ Wives laid down a meaner rock vibe to the bill. Standup bass, slide guitar and a lot of group shouting – makes for some fun shooting.

After deciding to check them out at their in-store at Vintage Vinyl, I dug their music enough to pick up their debut album and make my way back to it every now and then. So of course, I dug the show. And with the bands at the end of the tour, the night had an interesting air of celebration as members from other bands floated in and out to join in on songs. I don’t have much else to offer, so head over to read the show review over at Speakers in Code.
