Not sure why this one got lost in the shuffle, but enjoy these pics from the second sold-out night of Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, featuring Atlas Genius and Night Riots. Thanks to Delmar Hall for hosting this fantastic lineup.
Winding down a stint on this year’s Warped Tour, the gentlemen of Night Riots made another stop through STL and were kind of enough to let me hang backstage and get some shots as they prepped to perform on the Journeys Stage that day.
If you want to hop in the time machine and check out photos from their previous show with K. Flay at the Demo, head over here.

Another year whizzes past by yet again! Even though parenthood is translating into less shows and less posts here, I’m still humbled by the breadth of artists I get to meet and photograph every year (albeit sometimes just for 15 seconds). So in case you missed them earlier, here’s a selection of some personal favorites. We’ll be back in a few days with some of my favorite concert shots of the year. Enjoy!
“It’s one of my favorite records this year” – said a buddy whose musical tastes I think are rad, regarding K. Flay‘s recent release Life as a Dog. The crowd congregating at The Demo undoubtedly would have said the same, with tons of hands raised and bodies bobbing along with the rapper/producer (apparently one of the top 10 you should know about).
Opening for K. Flay was the California crew, Night Riots, who certainly cast off a Disintegration-era Cure / M83 vibe run through rock filter. Great guys, who were also kind enough to take a quick stroll through the Grove for a few pre-show pics.
With a dimmer night light-wise, it seemed like a fun time to experiment with multiple-exposures, so enjoy the unorthodox set after the jump.
