EMAROSA RECORD RELEASE SHOW – A REVIEW + PHOTO GALLERY

Hopeless Records Emarosa’ just released their highly anticipated album ‘Peach Club’ and to celebrate they held a record release show at The Hi Hat LA in Los Angeles on February 9th, 2019. For the originally post-hardcore band, ‘Peach Club’ is a huge leap into a new sound but a welcomed departure. For fans it is a way to hear their favorite band spread their wings, and Emarosa’ fans were very present at The Hi Hat LA this past Saturday showing their support for them at this sold out gig.

This is how crazy that little venue, The Hi Hat LA got at one point!

The three openers Alke, Modern Maps, and UFO UFO all brought something exciting to the table of varying degrees. Alke is a female singer-songwriter whose heartfelt lyrics and melodic vocals filled the venue, Modern Maps brought the party and had lots of fun energetic electro tracks that the crowd loved. UFO UFO kept up that same vibe with their stylistic indie rock leanings. All in all the openers brought a bit of everything for everyone.

The fans were there early for Emarosa (and in the cold or at the very least what is considered cold for California), many of them in Emarosa merch particularly ‘Peach Club‘ merch as Emarosa also held a ‘Peach ClubPop Up to celebrate the official release. I could tell from the atmosphere in the line already that these fans were devoted. In speaking with a fan who was wearing a jacket similar to lead singer Bradley Walden, she told me I was going to love the show as it was very high energy. She was right. The band tore through a relatively fast paced and fierce set that had the crowd going from start to finish. There wasn’t a member of the band that was low on energy. The entire audience was singing along word for word with front man Bradley Walden. This was a crowd despite how late it was that came here to party and to rock out. So for someone who was not familiar with Emarosa walking in, the energetic show they put on complete with band member acrobatics, lots of crowd interaction, and the fans being so happy to see their favorite band was so contagious. I not only left the show with a smile on my face, but I also left with total appreciation for a band and it’s fan base who are first and foremost all about the music.

REEL BIG FISH // ANTHOLOGY IN ROCHESTER, NEW YORK

California based ska punk band Reel Big Fish brought their high energy show fromThe Tickle My Tiki Torch Tour around to the people of Rochester, New York. The band played the rock venue Anthology on Saturday (10/20/18) to a crowd ranging of all ages. This is something that I truly love about the band as they don’t only attract their older crowd from the 1990’s, the year in which they surfaced the scene, but they also attract a crowd of teens, sometimes even younger, as the band is overall just a good time for everyone. They are one of the only bands I know of which have a horn section and yet get crowd surfers for every single song.
I got the pleasure to see the band for the second time around but this time playing their own show for an overpacked venue, the most crowded I think I have seen the 1,000 person capacity music hall. The set ranged from newer songs to songs off of some of their first few albums the band even played some covers of classics which everyone knows. From start to finish, everyone was moving and there wasn’t a single song where people stood still. Overall, I am excited to hear what the band offers us with their newest release which will mark their 29th release as a Reel Big Fish. Stay tuned for more to come from the band and check out some of the photos I took last Saturday!

OLIVIA O’BRIEN LIVE AT THE ROXY – A SHORT REVIEW + GALLERY

Hey, everyone yesterday I got the chance to photograph the concert by singer-songwriter and pop star Olivia O’Brien (with opening act Sofya Wang). Although the name may not sound very familiar yet.You have definitely heard at least one of her songs. With tracks like “RIP” which has G-Eazy on it and “Empty”, and most notably “hate u love u” which she sings with GNASH. Olivia O’Brien is definitely on the rise and her show at The Roxy (which was a very sweaty and fun one btw) was only solid proof. A short image gallery is below!
