Mumford and Sons with The Vaccines

Had the awesome opportunity to shoot Mumford and Sons and The Vaccines last week at the Xcel Energy Center. These guys have done something really great for music in bringing folk and bluegrass into top 40 music again.  Music trends go in waves and I'm glad to see that this is where it has been heading.  Their show was great and the Vaccines were awesome, too!  My girlfriend, Lydia, had a friend on tour with Mumford and Sons and he set us up with some great seats to watch the show after I was shooting.  Had a great time. 

Mason Jennings and Cloud Cult - Twin Ports Music Festival

I was in Duluth a couple of weekends ago for the Twin Ports Music Festival.  I had the opportunity to shoot both Mason Jennings and Cloud Cult.  Both awesome Minnesota based acts.  

The second that Cloud Cult came on the stage, it started raining.  The crowed loved it.
At one point they had to stop playing because of lightning and their safety.  I was at the back of the stage when the band came off and they were upset that they had to let their fans down.  So the whole band went to the edge of the stage and played acoustic to the people who stuck around.  It was a pretty cool experience.
