Got a few great pictures of Chris Brewer on Saturday at the Oregon Express. Usually, I think my concert photos aren’t very good, but I’m very happy with the ones I got of Chris this past Saturday at the gig we shared with Dave Berry. I’m especially happy about these photos because Saturday was Chris’s first time on a stage in eighteen years and I’m so glad I could provide him with a few pics to use for promotions and stuff as he gets back into music! I was so impressed with how he got up there and was just completely natural unto himself. It takes guts to get up on a stage, sing your own songs, and tell your story, (no matter the size of the crowd,) and he did it like he’d never been away. Luckily, no one was yelling during his set.
Also, sorry about my long, whiny, rant yesterday. I know sometimes you’re just gonna deal with crowds like that when you play out. If I’m playing a venue where the monitors are loud enough to cut through the din of the crowd, it’s fine. When I can’t hear myself over the crowd though… Well, it’s just very annoying and it really does effect my ability to meditate on the music.
