Buckcherry was so much fun at El Corazon in Seattle last night. My wife and I attended as fans and we were not disappointed. They always put on a great show and this small venue made it even more special.
Like any good photographer, I captured the action with my pocket camera and I’m glad that I did.

Photos and Review: Neil Young with Promise of the Real

Neil Young and Promise Of The Real played The Paramount on Tuesday, May 21st to a sold out, silver-fox, hippy crowd that was straight groovin’ to some ’60s tunes. The folk/rock icon wasn’t as overtly political as he was in the ’60s, but there was definitely a hint of it.  
Tuesday’s concert kicked off with Neil playing a series of songs alone, playing the piano and the guitar solo.  Young crushed 7 songs, including: “After the Gold Rush,” “Green Is Blue,” “Comes a Time,”and “Mother Earth (Natural Anthem).”  After he finished his solo, Promise Of The Real joined Neil on stage and completely rocked!  To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised how much Neil Young and Promise Of The Real could rock.  They didn’t stop for 20 songs – with 2 in the encore. 
Some fans were a little disappointed that Tuesday’s show was shorter than past shows, however, he played 3 shows in a row with 23 songs in Eugene. His show really wasn’t short for most performers, as Neil Young is known for his hours-long performances.
From start to finish, Neil was crazy energetic and he rocked the crowd as hard as any band half his age.
