While at Chipotle Cultivate Fest with Smallpools this summer, I also got to catch the sets of Betty Who, St. Lucia and friends from last year’s Grouplove tour, Portugal. The Man.

Handsome Ghost opened for X Ambassadors between tours a few days ago. It was a privilege to shoot with these guys! If you don’t know them, please check out their EP. Beautiful music.

One on of their pre-tour headline shows, I met up with X Ambassadors for some promo shots in Kansas City before shooting the live set. It also happened to be the official release day of their amazing debut full-length, VHS.

Always a privilege to see my favorite band play live. Their show at Uptown Theater in KCMO was my second opportunity to shoot their show. (See photos from their OKC show last year in this post.) This time around was especially meaningful as Jimmy Eat World is touring for the 10 year anniversary of “Futures“, which is also my favorite album. So excited to see them again in a few weeks at Cain’s Ballroom in OKC!

The opener was a treat as well, since Robin Vining, who has toured with Jimmy Eat World for a while now is in the band. Minibosses played a set of video game theme song covers. It was a fun time!
