An amazing night at the State Fair Grandstand with Brandi Carlile. She is truly awesome and I can't imagine growing tired of seeing/hearing her live. With all my Brandi postings, have I not convinced you yet to see her? :)

The lighting on the stage was dark. Really quite dark. And just not well done (lots of dark eyes). When I first looked at these images on the computer I wasn't feeling it. But then I introduced my best friend "black and white" to the images and bam... the feelings I had last night at the concert came rushing back. Feelings I'd like to bottle for those not-so-great evenings. So while these images maybe aren't perfect (most shot at ISO 3200, 2.8, 1/200), I'm kind of digging them.

Amos Lee was such an added bonus to the evening. He opened and then came on for a song with Brandi. This guy feels his music. Kind of addicted to his song "Careless" right now after hearing it last night.

Hi! I was just searching for a photo of Brandi and Amos playing together, and found your photos. I was there that night as well, and I wanted to thank you for posting these, as it was a night I'll never forget. The warm, summer breeze, their amazing voices carrying out into the night... Brandi blew my mind with every note, as did her band. Anyway, I'm no photographer, but I think these are great!
