Joseph Arthur: Photo Recap Liquid Sundays 6/6/10

June 7th, 2010 geekstar Posted in Art, Events, Friends & Fun Times, Music, Pittsburgh, SHOUT OUT!, photography 4 Comments »

Last night Joseph Arthur played an intimate set at LiquidSundays.com. Joseph Arthur has been one of my favorite artists for nearly ten years. It was the fourth time I’ve seen him live in concert and by far one of my favorite shows to date. Joseph incorporates live looping into his sets where he creates layers and layers of interesting vocal and instrument samples. This creates an amazing and unique concert experience. He also created a large painting while performing on stage. He typically only incorporates art into his shows at venues where he already has a close relationship. So this was an unexpected but appreciated addition to the show. He finished the concert by performing an impromptu acoustic encore while sitting on the merch table surrounded by family and fans.

Photo Recap: Midlake at Diesel 4/5/10

April 7th, 2010 geekstar Posted in Events, Friends & Fun Times, Music, Pittsburgh, photography 1 Comment »

Midlake was amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing this band play live. There were four guitarists on stage at all time which created a layered ethereal sound. I was very impressed by the talent among all the band members. Pretty much every musician played multiple instruments from flutes, to recorders, to keyboards, to percussion. There were always a minimum of two musicians singing at one time to create the harmony that is Midlake’s unique throwback sound. Anyways, check out the video below to get a taste of the concert. I only had my little point and shoot camera but here are a few photos from Monday’s show. I definitely recommend seeing Midlake if you have the opportunity. I was actually very surprised that show wasn’t more packed. I’m not sure if it was due to a lack of advertising or lack of radio airplay on local indie stations. I thought it was a shame more people didn’t come out to the concert. They were that good.

I just arrived back in Pittsburgh where I was greeted by way too much snow! Here are a few of my favorite photos from last week’s vacation getaway where I fortunately missed round 1 of the blizzard.
