So, yesterday, I took a 2 hour road trip from Washington, DC to Philadelphia, PA for Made in America, a 2-day music festival. I was working with a hip-hop based blog, so my focus was capturing the hip-hop acts, but I still planned to shoot the others.
The Summer Spirit Festival is a festival show with a nice mix of R&B/Soul music, and go-go. Perfect for a Washington, DC area audience. Headlining this year's show, was Lauryn Hill. Sorry, "Ms. Lauryn Hill".
Last Saturday, at Blind Whino, I provided photography coverage, for Brisk teas, at an event called "Brisk Bodega". It kinda reminded me of a big house party. But this time, it was inside a church - technically. "Church party"? Or nah?
I am currently on the road with singer/songwriter Anthony Hamilton. I'm sitting on the tour bus, editing photos, updating my website, eating nacho cheese Doritos, and drinking some old brown liquor. We left Philadelphia several hours ago, now headed to Indianapolis for a music festival tomorrow.
The 20/20 Experience Tour returned to the nearby city of Baltimore, MD, and I was able to score some last minute photo access, courtesy of Concert Blogger dot com. When the show was in Washington, DC not too long ago, I covered the show for their blog.
So, rapper J. Cole recently announced the 2nd run of his "A Dollar and a Dream Tour", hitting select cities, where he'll be performing his "The Warm Up" mixtape in its entirety - to celebrate the 5 Year Anniversary of the project.
