Phoenix in Seattle 03.29.13

March 30, 2013
Phoenix joined us at the extremely cool Bavarian inspired beer and bocce bar Von Trapps on Capitol Hill Friday afternoon before their sold out show at the Paramount.  They played a couple of songs in what I consider from a photographers perspective to be the best setting ever for an End Session!  Afterward, they were gracious enough to pose for some photos before heading over to the venue to practice for their upcoming appearance on Saturday Night Live.  The members of Phoenix couldn't have been nicer and now that I have seen th em perform live I can see why they are headlining Coachella in a couple of weeks.  Big things are happening to this band and for good reason.  They are simply awesome.

Bryce showed up with a phenomenal mustache to interview the band.  That way everyone either looked or sounded French on stage! 

After the photos it was time for some serious business!  Food and Bocce!  Von Trapps is a seriously cool place with delicious food and tons of cold beer.  I cannot wait to go back!

To prevent scalpers from reselling, all tickets were to be picked up at will call.  In theory this is a great idea.  The practical application left something to be desired as everyone had to wait in line for a very long time while the will-call table frantically searched for tickets one envelope at a time.
