SOUNDS LIKE: 

THOUGHTS: When I picked up my pass for the festival, I bumped into an old friend. I asked him if there were any bands I should check out. He suggested Fartbarf … what?!?! LOL. At first I thought he was kidding, but when I checked the artist schedule, I saw that there was a band called Fartbarf and I was already in the venue where they were performing, so I decided to stick around and check them out. When they took the stage, there were wearing matching NASA astronaut jumpsuits and wore odd, creepy masks. I initally had my doubts about the band because of the costume gimmick, but as soon as they started playing, my opinion changed immediately. Their synthpunk was adrenaline stirring, and I couldn’t help but groove to their sound. I think they could do without the masks, but as long as their music rocks out, I’ll keep my mouth shut.

PHOTOS: Just got a new 50mm prime lens, and still learning how to use it, so some of these pictures could have been better in focus, but I ain’t complaining.

Sunset Strip Music Festival 2014 | 9/20/14 | Homepage

Though I’m a Los Angeles native, I had never attended the Sunset Strip Music Festival. Now in it’s seventh year, and featuring several artist’s that I had been longing to see live for a while now, I decided to apply for a press pass.

 

Though I didn’t get approved to shoot the music festival, I called one of my clients, who happened to manage one of the artists performing, and got added to the photo pass list for the acts performing Saturday, September 24th.

 

Below is a list of artists that I had the chance to check out. Links to pages with my brief thoughts, photos, Instagram videos and set lists. Hope you enjoy them!
