So I was fortunate enough to be able to spend the summer on tour w/ Lilith. It was such an amazing experience. It's been a bit crazy trying to catch up with life since I've been back and I'm just now really starting to be able to dive into the hundreds of images I took. Rather than post them all at once, I thought I would just start posting some of my favorites (along with a few great memories to go along with them).
Thanks to the EVERYONE on the Lilith tour for making this one of my best summers ever!
You can find all my Lilith pix (which I will be updating regularly) at:
Here's a few of my faves:
Sarah, aka "The Boss" ;)
Erykah Badu, who I was fortunate enough to be able to meet and share a very brief conversation with.
I met Lots of great musicians on this tour and shared lots of great conversations but I think everyone, even the biggest artist, has that one musician or artist they're just kind of ga-ga over. I'm a huge fan of Erykah's and actually even cover one of her songs with my band here in Austin, Hot Sauce ATX (Oops, personal plug;), so meeting her was definitely super cool for me!
So, I had never heard Grace Potter & the Nocturnals before this tour but they came out like a bolt of lightning, snapping everyone within earshot of the "B Stage" to attention and gathering such an enormous crowd in every city that she was eventually moved to the main stage. Holy Moly, i can't say enough about her and her band. They were phenomenal. I guarantee they are destined for more big things. If you haven't heard them, give a listen or better yet, catch them live somewhere. They'll rock your pants.
Each night during the finale,' Sarah would bring all the Artists of the day up onto the stage to join her in an ever changing version of the classic "Because the Night." On this night, she was joined by, among others, The Bangles, (who also put on a great show of their own, of course) and all eyes were on them.
Lastly, here's a fun one I made of our bus (Bus 8!). Special shout out to Pema for the decorations. ;)
Thanks to everyone who kept up with me and my travels via facebook. It was nice to feel the love and support on those long crazy days!
More pix coming soon!
