Apr 18, 10:12 PM: Virginia Tech
I wish I had something constructive to say regarding this week’s massacre at Virginia Tech. It’s difficult, and living in the DC area means this was sort of in our own backyard. Many of my friends know people at VT, including some of those who were injured. Thankfully, though, all of the people my friends know, and I know, made it out alive. Sadly, the same cannot be said for others. It’s tough.
In other news, last weekend I traveled around New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts with my friends in Telograph. I shot three of their shows with O.A.R. Some photos have been posted on my flickr and more will be forthcoming. Although I have never been a huge O.A.R. fan, I would like to say they are some of the nicest guys I’ve ever met while working shows. The band and their crew are very professional but also understanding and helpful to make sure we had everything we needed, even though we were only the opening band. So a big thanks to everyone on the O.A.R. crew. Also, it goes without saying, but Telograph did a fantastic job, and as always the band was very well organized and treated me as a professional, which is appreciated more anything. Kudos to everyone affiliated with the tour, kudos indeed.
Here’s one of the shots:
Mar 7, 10:27 PM: Norfolk, Dismemberment Plan, Telograph
Yes, there’s been a lack of updates here. I’ve been keeping myself busy, though.
Last weekend I went down to Norfolk to see my friends Dirty on Purpose and the Lymbyc Systym play at the Boot. The Boot is quite an interesting venue—a seafood restaurant by day, a rock venue by night.
Here are a couple photos:
I’ll soon have galleries posted from the Boot show, as well as the Lymbyc Systym at the Warehouse Next Door here in D.C.
In other news, the Dismemberment Plan has announced two benefit shows in D.C. The d-plan broke up in 2003, so these two shows are a Pretty Big Deal. I’ve got tickets to the Friday show, on April 27. I’ll be taking photos, of course.
The last item for this update is that Telograph will be supporting O.A.R. for five shows in April. And yes, I’ll be there to document the whole thing. Five stadium shows, it’s going to be quite an experience.

Quick update. Spent the day at the Patriot Center with Telograph, O.A.R. and Gomez.
Here’s a few shots of Telograph. More coming soon.
Great show, also.
Jan 25, 09:29 PM: Coming Up: Telograph at the Patriot Center
DC band Telograph will take the stage tomorrow night in support of Gomez and O.A.R. at the Patriot Center.
For those not from the area, the Patriot Center is an arena, which serves as the home of the George Mason University basketball team.
I’m going to be shooting the show tomorrow for Telograph, so check back here this weekend for photos. If you feel like trekking out to the Patriot Center to support a local band, feel free. Telograph will also be headlining at the Black Cat a week later on Feb. 3.
