My schedule at work has changed due to a recent promotion. So, i haven't had as much time as i'd like to shoot photos. I shot these last week.

I've always been a fan of music by Shelby Cinca. I saw Frodus play when i was 17 years and have been a fan ever since. Frodus's "and we washed out weapons in the sea" is one of those records that has never left consitant rotation for me. I recently downloaded ('cause it's the only way you can get it) Shelby's new project Man and Wasp. I think it's some of his best work.

playlist for today:
man and wasp - close the world, open the next
refused - shape of punk to come
go it alone - histories

Converge & Neurosis: Seattle Washington 2/16/08

I had the opportunity to photograph converge and neurosis this past weekend. Both bands have been a huge inspiration artistically and musically so I was excited, to say the least. The club asked that i not shoot with a flash about 2 songs into Converge’s set so I shot most of the live images at ISO 1600. The images still came out underexposed so I pushed it during post editing which gave the images a grainy, dark, ominous feel; fitting for both bands. Much thanks to Jake Bannon for allowing me to shoot.

20" X 30" Prints will be available for $125 each. E-mail me at salo@odeum.org if you're interested.

This weekend, while in seattle, i got to hang out with my friend BJ. We chatted it up over a few drinks about old times. It's always nice catching up with people you don't get to see as often as you'd like. It's even nicer to see them doing well. Here's to old friends.
