I caught Atmosphere touring for there great new album Mi Vida Local in Charlotte last week and was happy to get a great spot up front where I could shoot the show while barely looking down at my phone. I enjoy recording shows, but being up front I didn’t want to hold my phone up at all. The result is very little zooming but it wasn’t really necessary given my position.

Atmosphere puts on a great show; I saw them just a year ago at the same venue but was further back. The opening act Dem Atlas was a pleasant surprise– I’ve never recorded an opening band I didn’t know as much as I did this one. It was a great performance I was happy to capture here.
