Atmosphere 2018

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.

Spoon at the Orange Peel

An amazing show and a great performance, I was very lucky to be right up front in the middle. I always enjoy recording shows, but this one was especially worth recording as I’ve already watched it many times myself.

Eleven songs in total:

  1. Do You
  2. Whisper I’ll Listen to Hear It
  3. First Caress
  4. Do I Have to Talk You Into It
  5. Underdog
  6. I Ain’t The One
  7. Rent I Pay
  8. Don’t You Evah
  9. Stay Don’t Go
  10. Can I Sit Next To You
  11. Camera

Miike Snow at the Fillmore Charlotte

I record a lot of concerts and have for many years. I started with a point and shoot camera that took video and it was relatively good for video but lighting was a problem and audio was often quite bad. I’m so impressed with how each new iPhone handles the very load bass of a live concert better and better. The last show I recorded was one of the best I’ve managed and that was Spoon at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC a couple weeks ago.

Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2012

Virgin Mobile FreeFest is on its way this October 6th. I’ve gone the last couple of years and it is always an awesome time. This year, I’m most excited to see Jack White, Ben Folds Five and Skrillex. A few other bands on the list are interesting too, but most I’d not heard of. As a Spotify user, I’ve created a collaborative playlist containing the top few songs by each band in an effort to make sure I don’t regret making my way over to one of the smaller stages to catch a future favorite. Check out the playlist here!

Flood

I think it was U2’s Achtung Baby! release in 1991 when I took notice of producer Flood. I started looking through my CD collection and saw his name listed enough of my favorite releases that I started digging to put a catalog of his work together.
