[#075]-Two shows, three great bands.

Friday night at the Journey here in Russellville [who has also hosted some other great local bands like Deas Vail], I had the opportunity to shoot one of my favorite bands, Dark From Day One and a new group I’d not listened to before, Atma. I definitely enjoyed seeing old friends and making new ones, all the while enjoying some great tunes.

Atma is a truly progressive rock band with a Pearl Jam feel.

And then Dark From Day One, who played up this younger crowd quite well.

…with a little trivia quiz to see which fan was going to blindfold Dylan [the drummer] for him to play a song of their choice, sightless!

She chose a song later on in the show…so the guys did their thing: a stellar performance as always.

It was time for the blindfolding…

And the test…

and never missing a beat. [or at least from what I could tell!]

Show #2: Dark From Day One and Hella Lula at Front Street Grill.

I was totally stoked to see some much needed advancements to the stage at Front Street. This photog was definitely a happy camper to have a really large elevated stage to get some sweet elevated shots.

First up, Hell&Lula. Another I’ve never experienced, but was sure glad I did. Upon waking today and beginning processing of last night’s shots, I bought a few of their tunes off iTunes. It seems to make greatĀ ambianceĀ to process a band’s photos to their own music. :)

And another awesome performance by the guys from Dark From Day One. With one of the most active crowds I’ve experienced with them in the River Valley Area.

Posted to sound.
