Jason Isbell and his band, the 400 Unit, kicked off the night in high gear, with What Have I Done to Help and Hope The High Road back to back. “Oh, It’s gonna be a good one tonight” he said in between songs “I can feel it!” Later, Isbell dedicated Letting You Go, a slower, […]

Ive heard of Caamp, on the radio, spotify playlists, and they’ve become a familiar name on quite a few festival posters as well, including this past year’s Hinterland festival in Iowa. But I was caught off guard at the sheer number of people who packed into the Palace Theatre this past Friday to watch the […]

Photography and Written Review by Elizabeth Mann On November 15th, The Show Last Night had the incredible opportunity of capturing LANY in concert once more. Accompanied by artists Keshi and Salem Ilese, the show brought a vibrant energy to the Monday night music scene of Denver. Ilese, most known for her TikTok sound Mad At […]

“Not bad for a Tuesday night!” Said Paul Klien, to a roar of applause at the Armory. Paul, the lead singer for LANY, seemed healthy and confident last night in Minneapolis after needing to reschedule the original date two weeks ago for vocal rest. “I know we’re late, and you could have been to a […]

Sloan Struble, who makes music as Dayglow, was all smiles last night performing at First Avenue. He had every reason to be, selling out the venue for the first time to a crowd who was just as excited to see him as he was to perform.  “I was told to be very cautious not to […]

Tonight, Madison Cunningham finally got the respect and headlining show she deserves in St. Paul.  In past shows where Madison Cunningham has opened at the Palace Theatre, iv’e made note of the noise level from the audience during the show, oftentimes drowning out her singing during slower numbers. Tonight, that definitely wasn’t the case. An […]

Lately, the new definition of a highly anticipated show is one you’ve been waiting nineteen months for. Such was the case tonight for Drive By Truckers, who are back on the road to fulfill a string of tour dates put on hold due to the pandemic. And judging by the wide eyes of the trucker […]

Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, who have unfortunately been relegated to an opening act for quite some time now, provided one of the more energetic opening sets I had seen for quite some time. Thao’s solo sets have been a bit tamer, however with a full band, she took control of the stage, […]

The Fillmore, Minneapolis’s newest concert venue, does a good job of calling back to hallmarks of the original Fillmore’s past, while trying its best to fit in with the other venues of the Twin Cities. The main floor of The Fillmore is all wood, with chandeliers hanging high above, making it one of the classier […]

Ive often spoken about how intimate a venue the Cedar Cultural Center is. Beyond a seated section in the right corner, you are waist-high to the stage, with no security fence, welcome to put your beer right on the stage. So it’s fitting that such an intimate venue is chosen to host an intimate artist.  […]

I was lucky enough to photograph two of the three Denver-metro show for the Drive-By Truckers. Here’s a few images from both. Fox Theater – Boulder, CO The Gothic Theater – Denver, CO 01.  Introduction 02.  Slow Ride Argument 03.  Heroin Again 04.  Birthday Boy 05.  The Righteous Path 06.  Where The Devil Don’t Stay […]

As I meandered through the crowd as Wilco began their set on the second of 3 shows this weekend, I began to smell the familiar scent of a fall bonfire. It was a mixture of pine, burning leaves, and birch. I thought it was odd that at a venue like this, where I typically am […]

in 2019, an all woman rock band isn’t as rare of a phenomenon as it used to be, but that doesn’t make it any less cool to see. For a long time, Sleater Kinney has shown people that “WoW, WoMeN ReAlLy CaN rOcK, huh?” and have moved well beyond the stigma of having to prove […]

If you didn’t think you could mosh at a Mac DeMarco concert, I’ve got some bad news.  The night ended with a shirtless Mac on guitar, shredding “Enter Sandman” onstage, with a mosh pit opening up near the pit. Concertgoers were throwing themselves into eachother. For those not near the mosh pit, they danced and […]

People love watching someone come into the spotlight. To “make it”. And I think it mainly has to do with the fact that they want to “make it” too, in whatever their profession is. Maggie Rogers is a musician from Maryland who has “made it” by many definitions. She’s currently on a tour that began […]

April 10, 2019 Our cab driver on the previous evening told us, “You haven’t been to Nashville if you haven’t gone down to Broadway St”. Personally, I’d rather hang in dives and dumps than Blake Sheldon’s bar – or especially Kid Rock’s bar. That aside, that’s not what tonight was about. First trip to Nashville. […]

It’s been dreary here in the Twin Cities. Lots of clouds, rain, and cold. It feels more like Seattle than it does Minneapolis. And as such, Minnesotans are starting to feel it. The warmer coats have come out of storage, and the wool socks have made their way to the top of the drawer. The […]
