The Milk Carton Kids at Napa City Winery

The Milk Carton Kids at Napa City Winery

The Milk Carton Kids are two guys – Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan – and their respective guitars, a 1954 Martin 0-15 and a 1951 Gibson J45.  Their show at City Winery in Napa was utterly breathtaking and a complete immersion in timeless soulful folk music.  The pair emerged and greeted a solitary microphone and… + Read More

The Head and the Heart: Spreckels Theatre, San Diego

The Head and the Heart: Spreckels Theatre, San Diego

The Head and the Heart write and perform music from the soul.  They write from the places in our lives where we stop to take inventory of the past, and seek wisdom to help guide our future.  The poetic, story-telling style of the Head and the Heart does recall the poetry of Robert Frost a… + Read More

Gillian Welch and David Rawlings

Gillian Welch and David Rawlings

If beautifully dark Americana music is your thing, then singer/songwriter Gillian Welch is your girl.  Gillian performs with her partner David Rawlings and, although the two prefer not to publicize their off-stage relationship, their onstage chemistry is undeniable.  Having been a fan for over 5 years, this was the first time we’d seen Gillian and… + Read More

Whiskey and Satan

Whiskey and Satan

The two have probably shared the same room once or twice… We drove up to San Francisco on a job and met some client friends at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco. One of our clients is the drummer in the headlining band which is wicked cool, because the gig was the night before his… + Read More

Built To Spill

Built To Spill

Here are a few more 20 or so photos from the recent Built to Spill show at the Belly up Tavern in Solana Beach.  I’ve been a fan of the band since I first heard them in 1994 and after 15 years…I finally got to see them in concert!  What a great show – so… + Read More

DJ Greyboy

Well…the blogs aren’t flowing as freely as we’d like them to but we have been busy with our move back from NZ and all.  It’s still a feeble excuse as we’ve got loads of images from jobs and our daily escapades that are lonely on our hard-drives and in their film-sleeves and we’re eager to… + Read More
