David Usher, The New Odds, and Shaun Verreault

July 11th, 2008

I’ve been dying to post these, but I had to wait till my site was finished and transferred!

Last month I saw an amazing 90s revival show: Shaun Verreault (Wide Mouth Mason), The (New) Odds, and David Usher played a killer line-up that had me drooling. They are all fantastic performers, but Shaun is hands down always my favorite. I was disappointed he didn’t make love to his guitar like he does with Wide Mouth Mason, but those lungs! Oh man!

What an amazing band!!

Concert photos (February to April)

Phew, I just finally caught up on going through all my live shots. I think I don’t have time to keep doing it this way anymore. I’ve been doing it the way I do it for so long that it’s hard to give up on the idea, and frankly it has always been a really great (free) marketing tool. The bands are happy to see their photos, and since they are able to copy the photos over to their MySpace pages my name gets around. My passion for concert photography was what made me decide to become a photographer and Supermarket Trashbin is what made me known. However, it might be time to move on. I still want to show my live shots, but I may have to pick the best few from every month or two, and make a quick flash gallery out of them.

Your opinion?
