Today I headed into Oakland to shoot a profile on Jesse Meeker and Eliot Curtis of Rec Center Studios for the East Bay Express newspaper. The production duo won the paper's Snuggie Music Video Contest, and were being interviewed for an article.

Happy Body Slow Brain - San Francisco (10-24-2010)

After a month or so stint on the east coast supporting Gavin Castleton, former Taking Back Sunday members Matt Fazzi and Isaac Bolivar brought their new project, Happy Body Slow Brain, home to the San Francisco Bay Area to play their CD Release show at The Rickshaw Stop.

Supported by Bird By Bird (fronted by John Devoto of The Matches), as well as Please Do Not Fight and The Girlfriend Season, HBSB pumped out a monstrous set from their debut record "Dreams of Water".

Of course, I was in attendance, and shot a few photos:

Interpol - Oakland, CA (10/18/2010)

I journeyed into Oakland to the Fox Theater last night to meet my buddy JC from TheFIVE10 Radio. He was to interview the Brooklyn band, White Rabbits, for his show. My job was to shoot for them, as well as their headliners, NYC-based Interpol. 

White Rabbits had a solid, catchy set. I felt they could have used more variety, however. But seeing that they've only released one record, that may be asking a bit much.

Interpol was astounding. A big wall of sound and lights that had you staring at the stage, fully immersed.

The Forest Through the Trees

The other day I took another trip (yet again) through the tunnel to shoot a short, but beautiful, wedding ceremony in the forests of the University of California - Berkeley. The setting was a small wooden theater among the redwoods... something that you might have seen in Return of the Jedi. It was a quaint gathering, and a lot of fun.
