A few days ago I got invited to attend the Acoustic Alliance show at Brick by Brick by Pete Thurston, my friend and former client who is a singer/songwriter. The Acoustic Alliance is a unique format put on by Listen Local SD where artists share the stage, and take turns performing songs. It had been awhile since I’d photographed any live acts, and I remembered quickly how much I enjoy it. It was a little odd being in a hard rock club and navigating around chairs, but acoustic acts don’t generally jump around and freak out onstage like some of the bands I followed when we lived in Chicago. Of course since I was there primarily to photograph and support Pete I took more photos of him, but if you were one of the artists who attended you can check out the link to all of the shots I processed from the night here.
Of course I needed to take a shot of Pete’s wife Cassandra contemplating which BBQ dish she was going to order.
Savannah Philyaw, shocked the audience when she revealed she’s only 16.
Rich McGee did not shock the audience when he revealed he was not 16.
I think someone said Jordan Reimer was sick, but you would have never known it listening to her perform.
My man Pete Thurston.
