So this marks my first gig in Yakima. Normally the big name acts go to either the Tri-Cities, or Seattle. So when I heard Daughtry was coming, I had to jump all over that one.
To be honest, I actually got made fun of for shooting this gig by my friend Daria who said to me via Facebook, “Daughtry??? I will let this one pass, but if I find out you went to a Creed concert, Mr T and I will drive the black A-Team van over to Yakima to stage an intervention. “I pity da foo who listens to Daughtry!!!”
First up was Cavo, whom I had never even heard of, but my girlfriend knew of their music (I don’t listen to Yakima radio). They had a short set of only 5 songs, but overall the crowd ate it up.
Next up was Lifehouse, which i will say this, THEY STOLE THE SHOW! Not only were they fun to see live, but also fun to shoot. I kind of hold them up to Tonic, whom I had the privilege to shoot last year at Snoqualmie Casino. The crowd went nuts the entire time they were on stage.
Overall, it wasn’t a bad show by all means. But I feel Lifehouse should of been the headliner… Then again if Lifehouse and Tonic would tour together, I would be all over that in a minute.
