Cults Play San Diego

Posted on Oct 21, 2011 in Uncategorized

My niece Madeline McKenna formed a group with her boyfriend Ryan Mattos (phenomenal songwriter and musician).  They exploded on the indie music scene over a year ago with a single they recorded in their apartment in York called “Go Outside”.   The single was meant to be played just for their friends and they uploaded it on the internet.  Within weeks the single had gone viral on the internet and was even picked up by Perez Hilton who claimed that this was the next big group.  Well he was right and The Cults went on to sign on with a major record label and began to tour the world non stop since they launched.

Just this last week, I had a chance to watch the Cults again as they played one of their largest shows I had seen.  They were playing with another indie group – Foster the People and the place was absolutely packed.  I was thrilled to watch her and they even gave me a coveted “Photo Pass” which allowed me into the photographers pit and also back stage.  It was a phenomenal night and I loved every minute of it.  Check out the band photos for the Cults on the link below.
