Five from Ten

I bought a new lens for my camera this year and while I still have a long way to go, I thought I’d look back on 2010 with some of my favorite concert photos (with accompanying notes…)

Dave Rawlings Band, Bonnaroo, 6/12/10

For the first half of 2010, I probably played the Dave Rawlings Band album A Friend of a Friend twice as many times as any other release, so I was real psyched for their Bonnaroo set. I have a lot to juggle down there, running the Bonnaroo Beacon paper amidst so much great music but this was one set I just kicked back and enjoyed from start to finish.

Allman Brothers Band, MGM Grand at Foxwoods, Mashantucket, CT 11/16/10

It was great to see Gregg and the Brothers back in action. To my eyes he looked slightly gaunt but his voice was in fine form.

moe., House of Blues, Boston, MA 12/30/10

I was supposed to spend New Year’s Eve’s Eve out in San Francisco, covering Furthur for a Relix cover story but due to snow, I remained grounded back East. So I was psyched to sneak in some moe…

Punch Brothers, Bonnaroo, 6/12/10

Gotta love the Sonic Stage at Bonnaroo, plenty of cool music in an intimate setting. Hey Annabel, you out there?

Jackie Greene, Gathering of the Vibes, 7/30/10

I’m happy with this one because it’s about as Jackie Greene-sy as it gets with the shades, the leather, the look…Plus it’s from the Gathering, which after some years away has since returned as my local New England fest…
