On Sunday, January 29th Wilco made its return to San Francisco proper for the first time in 4 years to play The Warfield, the first of three sold out Bay Area gigs. This was my first time seeing Wilco and was greatly impressed by the musicianship of the band and the sweet vocals of frontman Jeff Tweedy.
I photographed the show and my shots were published in Hidden Track, you can see them here.
The poster for the show was designed by Heads of State.
In December 2011 Chris Robinson Brotherhood played a four-night run at San Francisco’s legendary Great American Music Hall to cap off a year of touring with his new band. After two memorable nights of extended jams and Chris’ brand of blues psychedelia, the band moved into night three with a big surprise. After rocking the first set with the full band, Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead came out to fill-in on bass duties for the whole second set. The set included a fair amount of Grateful Dead tunes peppered between CRB originals.
San Francisco artist Alan Forbes designed the posters for the four-night run.
This past Saturday The Flaming Lips headlined day 2 of the annual Harmony Festival at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, CA. After a full day of music and wandering the fairgrounds with my sister and niece, I managed to make my way front row center with my Canon 40D and snapped some photos. I’ve seen The Flaming Lips a few times but never up this close. They always put on a fun show, and they sounded fantastic, especially from the front row.

Opening this Thursday at the Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco is Scene Unseen, a photography show focusing on alternative landscapes. I have six photographs in the show–all shot from airplane windows. This particular group of images was captured on flights I’ve taken over the San Francisco Bay Area and Southern Utah in a span of about six years.
I will also have pieces stocked in the Art-o-Mat machine near the front door.
The opening reception runs from 6pm – 8pm. Rayko is located at 428 Third Street @ Harrison in SF.
