Puscifer at Lisner Auditorium

You're probably familiar with Maynard James Keenan from such bands as Tool and A Perfect Circle.  His new project, Puscifer, is a musical, comical, theatrical production.  He said that he started the project because "with every breath we should all be creating something." 

I've always been a huge fan of musicians who break away from their usual style and do something different.  This was no exception - the music and visuals were fantastic and everyone in the audience laughed a lot.  I am familiar with Carina Round and found her to be perfect for this act. 

The dark lighting during the 2 songs I was approved to shoot posed a bit of a challenge as I do my best to capture facial expressions.  Here are my attempts at presenting still images of the show in the artistic fashion it was presented.

Carina Round at GW Lisner Auditorium

A friend introduced me to Carina Round when we were living in Hollywood - I then went to see her every opportunity I could and own a lot of her CDs.  She is incredibly talented, hilarious, and has such a beautiful voice.  It was so great to see her play in DC - and even cooler when a guy saw me in the lobby and told me the show was great (confession - he may have been a LITTLE drunk), but that's right, folks - I was mistaken for her.  And it totally made my day!  : )

Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience at The Fillmore

I was not expecting the amazingness that I experienced at this show.  These guys are so great that it sounds JUST like you're listening to a Led Zeppelin album.

Evan Dando at Black Cat


Still amazing after all these years! 

Aggrolites at Red Palace

I've said it before and I'll say it again and again.  I LOVE this band.  Amazing music, sweet guys, and always one hell of an awesome show!  Do yourself a favor - go see them the next time they're in town.
