Photos: The Presets @ Neumos

I’ve heard people say no one dances at shows in Seattle. This is just not true, especially if you’re at a Presets concert. There were masses of people pushed together and dancing with little or no inhibition. The Presets are such a mighty band and have grown even stronger since I saw them last year with Cut Copy. They’re something to relish indeed.

Favorites of mine from the whopper of a set: I Go Hard, I Go Home, Are You the One?, Yippiyo-Ay, My People and This Boy’s in Love.

I took photos of the show and am including a few here. For more visit the following links: presets @ neumos 1, presets @ neumos 2.

Photos: Cold War Kids @ the Showbox

Cold War Kids were at the Showbox last night and our friend Josh Lovseth, photographer and writer from Sound on the Sound collaborated with us by taking some beautiful shots. I’m thrilled he worked with us – I especially like the silhouette picture. I saw Cold War Kids in December 08 and enjoyed their energetic rowdiness. Next time I hope to see them again!

Photos: Throw Me the Statue, Telekinesis, the Banyans @ the Crocodile

Throw Me the Statue recently headlined at the Crocodile and Julie Harmsen got some gorgeous photos (again! I love her) of the band and Telekinesis as well as the Banyans. Telekinesis starts a tour in May and has some pretty glamorous shows set up already in June for Vienna, Austria & Berlin, Germany. Nice.
