live music: BEST OF 2013 x LIVE MUSIC PHOTOS x PART 2

Here are my

Here we go again… another year of shooting live music under my belt. This year started out with a move to Northern California. It was very exciting in that I got to shoot in venues that I have mostly never shot in before. Met a bunch of great photographers along the way here. The types of venues I shot in ranged from one end of the spectrum to the other…from amphitheaters to tiny clubs/theaters to live music at wineries/vineyards. Even managed to squeeze in a few music festivals and some food/wine/music related events. Throughout the course of this past year, I’ve shot upwards of 220 bands in 6 different states.

Here is Part 2 in no particular order.

Check out my review in photos…
