Flogging Molly @ House Of Blues Los Angeles

Nearly exactly one year since I shot Flogging Molly on tour in Chicago, I managed to shoot their set at House Of Blues on Sunset Strip for their 8th annual “Green 17” tour.  And I gotta say, Los Angeles House Of Blues may be one of my new all-time favorite venues.  At least with it’s rustic, pub appeal, it seemed a very fitting venue for Flogging Molly’s brand of celtic punk.  With fantastic lighting, to boot!


Top 10 Concert Photos From 2011

 Boys Noize concert fans @ Music Box Hollywood (Justin Gill)

Top 10 Lists come out of the woodwork every year’s end, and I’m making no exception.  Here’s a list of some of my most memorable concert photos I’ve shot this year, either for aesthetic or iconic reasons.

I’m kicking off this list with the above photo, shot during Boys Noize set at The Music Box in Hollywood.  I’m including it here as it not only makes a good “lead” for a blog article about concert photos, but also because it showcases the raw energy emanating from the packed house that evening, and the fan wearing the Boys Noize shirt adds just a little bit of context :)


Flogging Molly @ Congress Theater

“They still turn the Chicago River green on St Patrick’s Day, right?” -Dave King, Flogging Molly vocalist

I caught Flogging Molly performing at Congress Theater in Chicago, on tour to support their forthcoming studio album, Speed Of Darkness

I remember several years ago seeing Flogging Molly play outdoor summer Irish Festivals to crowds of maybe 500. Now I get to shoot them playing the first night of packed out double-header concerts at Congress Theater, one of the largest movie palaces in one of the largest cities in America.

And what better timing than to kick off St. Patrick’s Day week! The band was obviously having a great time on stage, and the crowd loved it.
