A few months back I caught Failure here in San Diego on their Tree Of Stars tour. Needless to say, I was blown away by their live performance. After a sixteen year hiatus, this tour back showed they still had what it takes to play their incredable discography and sound great doing it.

I only had a roll of Kodak Ektar 100 with me and my Contax G2, that I was able to sneak past the door men at the House of Blues, you need a photo pass to use pretty much anything else but your phone, so I was unable to use my flash and had to relay on slower shutter speeds and an open lens. Not too bad considering the lighting in this venue isn’t the best. 

The return of the band Failure….Very impressed how this photography set was shot without a flash.

Some really solid releases this week. Can’t get enough of the new alt-J.

It’s a pretty good week for music releases. Looking forward to checking these tracks.
