Nomad Planets at the Grindhouse Cafe

Photos from Nomad Planets, playing at the Grindhouse Cafe in Griffith, IN. Without the drums, they fit in just fine. Not to take away from having a percussion session, just that space was limited.

Nomad Planets did a great job in this small venue. For whatever reason, I thought it very cozy, up front and personal, inviting. It felt like the Nomad Planets were on top of their music game. After the first song they had things adjusted for the size of the room. What was a bit funny was watching them close a song without a drummer. I have written it before, and will write it now once again, the song does not end until the drummer makes it so.

Here are a few photos. I did a terrible job at it this time. So do not let that take you away from ou seeing Nomad Planets when you get the chance!










Yes, I will photograph almost anything . . .



































Check out the Nomad Planets. They are one of the best, nice guys, you will ever have the pleasure of listening to and knowing.

Go visit the Grindhouse Cafe. You will not be happy you did. A great place to kick back, have a bite to eat and something to drink, and socialize.

MoonRunners Music Festival 3 - Day 2

For most of my intro to MoonRunners Music Festival 3, you can check out Day 1 by clicking here. I apologize to the musicians at the end of this day that I did not get to see and photograph. I owe you one.

Friday's event was cool. Saturday cranked it up a notch. What I was not expecting was the free buffet all day. When I am out photographing, and listening to music, I do not get that hungry. I still partook; brats, hot dogs, pulled pork, mac & cheese, and wings, and I kept the ice tea coming.

Like yesterday, the photos are mostly "as shot" with little editing, and in the sequence that I shot them in. Roaming around from the North to the South venues, and taking a detour once and a while outside. Some musician photos are early photos during sound check, then you will see the same musicians later in the blog. I mention this because it may seem a bit chaotic with the sequence of photos.

For the list of musicians for this day scroll down to the bottom of this blog post. Also, if you click on the photo it will enlarge on our screen (most computers). You can then use the left and right arrows on your keyboard to scroll through them.

This blog post, and Friday's, is picture intensive. I would not try pulling this up on your phone.


Day 2





















I am going to spotlight Hunter Grigg. A young gentlemen making his way in music, as musicians do. I believe this was his first time in Chicago, haling from Ashville, North Caroline. He's making his way into music in a great way. His Chicago debut impressed me a lot . . . he is going places . . .





































































































































































































































































































































I really liked Lucky Tubb & the Modern Day Troubadours (below). Might even travel to Austin to see them some time.
