Part 2 of my time with The Hunna was to join the Alt Nation Tour with Night Riots. (See Part 1 here.) We had a chance to get super close, and I made a new tour photog friend in Ben Zucker, which is always fun! Lots divey venues and long drives on this one.

I had the pleasure of meeting and touring with these fun lads (see that English thing I did there?) this past Fall on 3 separate tours. All the way from the UK, it was The Hunna’s first time touring around the US, and they RIP it live.
This post covers runs supporting Jimmy Eat World (what???) and The Struts, another talented group of English homies. See Part 2 here!
JIMMY EAT WORLD:
Abi has a powerful voice, personality and sense of personal style! I travel around the US with her this fall to document her shows and tour behind the scenes. She supported Pentatonix with Us The Duo on the US portion of their World Tour. We were accompanied by her talented band, Carissa (MUA extraordinaire), and her sweet parents/managers.

I’ve never seen a more supportive and proud dad than Abi’s. This post is dedicated to Don, who is loved and missed.
I’ve followed this band for a few years- ever since I discovered them via… Soundcloud, or… some obscure Facebook ad. Their music was love at first listen, and they continue to pump out tracks that give me all the feels. I’m honored to call the gentlemen and lady of Handsome Ghost my friends, and it was a pleasure to finally tour with them! I joined for about 10 days this fall in support of the Melanie Martinez #CryBabyTour, covering shows from NYC to OKC. Below are some of my favorite captures from my time on the road with this band.
Check out one of my faves off their latest EP while you scroll:
I had the pleasuring of joining Coast Modern on tour this summer, supporting The Wombats (a long-time favorite!). While with them, we hit cities in the SW, and had a few adventure/shooting/travel days in between!
I went out with Mainland for a few days in support of the Marianas Trench “Hey You Guys” Tour. Being their second tour ever as the Mainland project, it was to fun to witness the waves of new fans made after each city’s high energy set. Can’t wait to see what happens next for them. These photos span the shows in LA, Vegas, Tempe, and Dallas.
I had such an amazing time, and can’t wait to see what this crew is coming out with next! Follow me on social media (@annaleemedia) for more BTS music content.
A continuation of my tour photo journal for Grouplove on the Honda Civic Tour last fall, including Float Fest, ATL (with a no-chill Lords of Portland after party show) and Charlotte! Buds from Portugal. The Man make a few appearances here as well! Part 3 coming soon.
