Soft White Sixties / Baby Boomers -- 10/16/12 at Bottleneck

Hello, from Ailecia, your favorite party pics photographer! I want to give a shout out for this show! The Soft White Sixties are awesome--amazing vocals and muscianship doing that 60's r&b inspired rock n' roll thing. One of my dearest and oldest friends from Alabama is in the band, and I'd appreciate y'all supporting this new and emerging band from San Fran.

Party Pix: Foxy by Proxy Revue burlesque show at Frank's North Star Tavern

Thanks for the feedback. Sorry you don't appreciate my aesthetic. For the record I shoot with a professional camera, glass & edit in Lightroom, not Instagram. I just prefer an old skool aesthetic. And it was hella dark in there, shooting with only a 2.8. Would love to see _your_ photos, kind sir.

Behind the Lens: Camera flash can be useful even when it's sunny

Flash with a warming filter helps out with the whole vibrancy thing.

"radical politics, power-pop melodies, traditional Jewish music, and punk vitriol."

"The Shondes make bold, brassy lonely-heart rock with the snarl and swoon of classic '90s Northwestern indie--all riot grrl bluster, K Records sentimentality, and a keening, wailing violin that's more Nirvana Unplugged than Raincoats unhinged... Separating themselves from Sleater-come-latelys, the Shondes have a little bit of steampunky clatter underneath their crunching riffs and a keen ear towards the Jewish music that raised each of its four members."
-The Village Voice

“Ready for an indie break out....radical politics, inspired riffs, textured harmonies and pure sex appeal”
-Curve Magazine

“Riot grrrl radicalism wed to classically structured songs, distortion pedals, clashing vocals, and powerful lyrics.”
-The Village Voice
