Murder By Death w/ Tim Barry @ The Echoplex

[Murder By Death @ The Echoplex 3/25/16]

Murder By Death (with Tim Barry) played a show as part of their current tour at The Echoplex in Los Angeles this past Friday.  They were the first band I ever saw in concert which happened to be at the same venue.  The mister took me a few years ago.  We've seen them every time they've come into town.  One of the best and most unique things about Murder By Death is that their act contains a cellist.  In my opinion, a cello really brings a darker, more somber sound to music that I'm quite fond of.

I mounted my friend's 28-200 mm telephoto lens on my DSLR in preparation for The Echoplex where I also signed my first photo release.  Did you know that some places require you to sign one?  No, me neither, but the girl at the door said it was, "In case you get famous."  Oh, I wish.  I moved around the venue a lot for part of the night to get my shots.  I love this lens for shooting so much that I'm considering saving up for my own.  I'm sure this would be a much more feasible goal if I stopped blowing my money on concert tickets, food, and makeup.

  1. Oh you took some awesome shots! Definitely worth moving around the gig to get those shots. I've never taken a proper camera to a gig before - but it looks like it can be well worth it x

  2. However, one may ask or maybe research the inquiry, with regards to the idea of across the board numbness in the acknowledgment of anything not as much as decently great intentioned connections.עורך דין תעבורה
