Fountains of Wayne in San Diego

Posted on Oct 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

Fountains of Wayne is an excellent group out of New York City.  Now they are not your hippest NYC band given that they were formed in 1996, but there list of awesome songs and original material is impressive.  I started to listen to them in 1999, after there initial album release and I have always considered them some of the most talented song-writers in the industry. Lucky me as I discovered that they were playing at Anthology in San Diego last night.  I scooped up two tickets and saw one of the best shows of my life.  It was a great night.  I like photographing live shows but it is actually a bit difficult.  The lighting keeps changing and you are often limited to pictures based on where you are seated.   From my experience it is always best to bring your longest lens because the closer the better as far as I am concerned. Unfortunately I didn’t heed my own advice and only brought a lens focal length to 85MM which isn’t enough even when you are sitting close.  In any case, a great show and a great band.
