Concerts 2010

So as I was scouring my HD I came across some shots from random shows over 2010. Figured it might be fun to share these as well as some excellent fucking music.

Hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, Andrew Jackson Jihad is a folk punk band usually consisting of the duo Sean Bonnette (guitar & vocals) and Ben Gallaty (upright bass), although occasionally they’re joined by drums or horns. Got to see them at Beat Kitchen last June and it was a fucking blast. A friend of mine had introduced me to their music back in 2008 and I was immediately struck by the sincere, grotesque and occasionally hilarious lyrics. So here are three songs because it was impossible to pick just one.

Screaming Females was another fabulous band I saw in September at Brew Not Bombs III (which is also a very awesome benefit teeming with music and microbrews). From New Brunswick, New Jersey, they’re a bit punk/screamo/guitargasm rolled into one with Marissa Paternoster (guitar & vocals), Jarrett Dougherty (drums), and King Mike (bass). Let’s just say that Marissa is my new rock goddess and leave it at that. *swoons*

Happy listening! You can see the rest of the pics here.

Plastic Beach Tour 2010

So I’ve been meaning to post these at some point. Finally had the chance to go see Gorillaz after falling in love all those years ago when their first album came out. As you can see, I got a sweet ass view from the main floor. Revel in the awesomeness that is the Plastic Tour. (And props to my little Lumix for taking such great shots for a pocket digi.) I even got some shots of Damon Albarn… *swoon*
