Fresh Espresso at the Capitol Hill Block Party

July 20, 2012

This was the only show I shot at Neumos on day one of the Capitol Hill Block Party.  I think picking just one I chose wisely with Fresh Espresso.  I walked into Neumos and was blasted with the pugeant aroma of sweat and stale beer.  In a freakish way I kind of liked it. 
I got there about 20 minutes early and the place was already packed.  Let me tell you, lugging two full size DSLR's, 4 lenses and other miscellanious gear makes moving around in a wide open space tricky.  Maneuvering my way to the stage in a packed Neumos with all that was nearl y impossible but I made it.  Sound check took a little extra time so they were about 20 minutes late taking the stage but it was worth it.  To be perfectly honest, I don't listen to much hip hop but I love the instant intensity that Fresh Espresso brought out.  They grabbed the light sabers from the girls and you can see the results in the photos below.  Awesome show.
