Last night, Billy Talent performed at The Varsity Theater, also known as the place with the best bathrooms in America. The Canadian rock band has played Lollapalooza and Warped Tour, along with scattered shows along many of the northern American states. Since the release of their self-titled debut in 2003, Billy Talent have cemented themselves as a generation-defining rock […]
I recently got the opportunity to travel down to Colorado to work with Trampled By Turtles as their photographer at Red Rocks Amphitheater (Bucket list experience: checked). On 08/11/2016 TBT played their sold out show. I packed up and made my journey from the Minneapolis area with a few family members. Here is my story, through […]

Here’s a bunch of photos from Trampled by Turtles’ two days in Colorado. Wednesday at the Ogden was a great warm up for an amazing Thursday evening at Red Rocks. Got to meet one of the best beat writers in the NHL (and laugh about Roy leaving the Aves) both evenings. Had absolutely incredible access […]
Photos by Alexander Just Written by Maya Clark Tuesday, July 19th, hip hop lovers rendezvoused at Cabooze in Downtown Minneapolis for the likes of Warren G and openers The Perfect Rejects. I could smell the cannabis in the air about a block away, so I knew I was in the right place! It was a […]
Alpine Valley was written on the back windows of buses and station wagons, telling us where they were headed, and the license plates telling us where they were from. People descended here from as far away as New York, Florida, and California just to see them.
This past Saturday (7/9/2016) Trampled By Turtles headlined a hometown jam at Bayfront Festival Park. They brought Minnesota favorites Hippo Campus on the bill to join them. Hippo Campus started a little before 8pm and played though the sunset: Trampled By Turtles took on night shortly after to really end an amazing home town show […]
Electric Forest 2016 On the morning of June 23rd, you could hear the quiet purr of EDM in the distance. Cars lined up miles long to reach the gates of the famous Electric Forest Festival in Rothbury, Michigan.

A few months ago, one of Minneapolis’ most beloved bands announced their final tour, calling it quits after 18 years stating, “We have no idea what the future holds, but for now we are done.” Their set at the Varsity Theater gracefully spanned every album and their energy never faltered, which is impressive seeing as it was […]
A long but fun weekend photographing and camping in Telluride, CO. Which is quite possibly one of the most beautiful places on earth. Parking is an absolute disaster, but that’s what happens when 10k cars ascend on a town the size and shape of Telluride. Trying to convince the Wife that we need to go […]
8 bands. 2 stages. 1 beautiful, sun-drenched day of great vibes and even greater music. Rock the Garden – hosted by local public radio station, The Current, and modern art museum, the Walker Art Center – has easily become Minneapolis’s most-popular music festival and the unofficial kick-off to summer. And with reason: there is always a fabulous […]

Written and Photographed by Casey Carlson If you were one of the first few concert goers to escape the rain and enter First Avenue this past Wednesday, it wouldn’t have been hard for you to spot Courtney Barnett playing Ms Pacman off to the side of the steadily growing crowd. Courtney, along with a few band […]
Mod Sun headlined a sold out show at First Avenue for his favorite holiday with help from Rocky Diamonds and POS!
For many, myself included, this tour lineup was one of the biggest motivators to make it through the winter. When this show was first announced, social media exploded; partially out of excitement, and partially out of outrage that a show at The Garage most likely meant a show with stage barriers. Thankfully, The Garage heard everyone loud and […]
LAST NIGHT the OUTCRY Tour came to St. Paul at the Xcel Energy Center for an exciting night! The OUTCRY Story: “OUTCRY is the lights and sounds of a movement in progress. We believe that the “the next big thing” is here. It’s always been here. The local church. And there is no greater movement to […]

Big Gigantic is an instrumental livetronica, hip-hop and jazz influenced duo based out of Boulder, Colorado.

A week ago, So What?! Music Festival was held at QuikTrip Park in Grand Prairie, Texas. It was nothing short of astounding. From legendary acts like New Found Glory headlining, to everyone’s favorites like State Champs and Neck Deep just before. We recently flew down to Texas to partake in the festivities of the eclectic […]
Written and Photographed by Casey Carlson You don’t hear the term “revue” used much for shows these days. In its heyday, a revue typically consisted of song, dance, and a theatrical performance, All of which were present for the Secret Stash Soul Revue at the Fitzgerald Theater. Sonny Knight & the Lakers entered the stage at 8:00 to […]
On Wednesday night, adolescence and adults of all ages flooded the doors of Myth Live in Maplewood, Minnesota for the likes of Melanie Martinez and opening band, Alvarez Kings.
