I got the opportunity to cover NXNE for Noisey Canada. I had the chance to see LIZZO perform on a streetcar, open a pit with Pissed Jeans and cover all the outdoor shows at Yonge Dundas Square. This year, Danny Brown, Sleigh Bells, Golden Teacher, Swans and St. Vincent were all present and took the stage for NXNE 2014. All photos are on Flickr.
Landmark Events held a 'battle of the bands'-eqsue showcase last Sunday. I went to support my friend Brad, who's the drummer of a band called Running Violet. Real amazing drummer, mind you. I'm super proud of him. I also got a lot of shots of the bands and artists who played, and due to some perseverance and hard work, am now shooting Landmark's final showcase on July 19-20, 2014.
I went to see the legendary Roots last Saturday at Luminato 2014. They changed my views on concerts, so in that case, I've never seen a real concert until last Saturday. The Roots played straight through- that seriously took willpower, determination, experience and true musicianship. I personally am still in disbelief of what I witnessed. Got some amazing shots, ended up writing a concert review for Love This City.
