They’re back in business. Grouplove released their long-anticipated new album “Big Mess” on Sept 9th, 2016, and played a few intimate shows during release week. Images from their set at El Cid in Silverlake below!
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.
It was exactly a year ago that I first went out with Grouplove, so I decided to finally post a photo journal from my time with them on the Honda Civic Tour! It was a pleasure to be around this group of people and see the relentless energy they have on stage, and passion they have for their art and fans. It was also my first time to have other girls around on tour! This post covers the Kansas City and Dallas shows (and a day off field trip to see the KC Royals).
ALSO Hannah and Christian just had a baby!! Go tell them congrats!

This summer I’ve had the opportunity to go out on tour with a really amazing group of people, who are as fun as their music. Smallpools is Sean Scanlon (vocals/keys), Mike Kamerman (guitar), Joseph Intile (bass), and Beau Kuther (drums). These guys are SO talented and have blown everyone away with their rapid success and high energy live show. It was a privilege to document every day life with them on stage and on the road. I also had a blast getting to know the crew that helped make everything possible- Kelsey Kuther (guitar tech), James Wooten (TM & FOH), and Sandor Schlaffer (merch manager). So proud of everything I’ve witnessed them accomplish and to call the whole crew friends!
These photos are just a fraction of what I covered of Smallpools on Grouplove’s Spreading Rumors US Tour. They span shows from Pomona, Tempe, Tucson, Dallas Edge Fest, OKC, and a LOT of time in the Sprinter… And there is so much more to come! I will be following up with more posts from the subsequent run with Neon Trees. Also check out my Instagram for sneak peeks from tour!
Smallpools is gearing up to release a full length album, but give their amazing first single “Dreaming” a listen while you check out this post!
Me with the guys! (Most of) the whole tour crew. (Thanks for the photo Catie!)
The first couple photos were behind the scenes of an interview with the band from Fratzke & Fratzke at the Pomona show- check the video out below!
