The Good Graces Album Release Party

Jeffry Butzer played a fantastic mix of surf and garage, but lights be dammed he faced the drummer for most of the set towards the dark area on stage.

Next up was Night Driving in Small Towns, which I have to admit, I have an unhealthy songwriter crush on. Colby and Andi write the most heartbreaking lyrics and pare them with a sunny beat that just melts my heart. Dang it you guys! They played a great mix of songs from their two main records Serial Killer, and their latest, Closure. So, Good.

I briefly stepped backstage to tuneup when they kicked into my absolute favorite tune, February. Run back out front!

i can hear my upstairs neighbor
putting down a crying baby
everybody starts a family
i can’t even pay my heating

That line just slays me everytime. Andi stood in the good light, and many pictures were taken.

The Good Graces were up next so the camera was handed off to Robyn. Giant lens in hand she shot the Good Graces for me. I do believe she's getting good at this!

This was the first time I had a chance to shoot at the Drunken Unicorn with my Nikon D90 and my new 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, and it did not disappoint as long as people were standing in the light. Looking forward to my next shoot there already.
