The homie @jacobgemmell is coming through for #SonicAmbulance tonight on the East Coast and covering #manchesterorchestra. Should be awesome, and if you’re in DC, check out his show with @wildluckmusic tomorrow!! (at Amoeba San Francisco)
Rodrigo y Gabriela are truly an electrifying duo. Their mission of this tour was to play a stripped down set as if they were in your own living room and at times, it definitely felt like that. I was only allowed to shoot for their first three songs but that was enough to fall in love with both of them, separately and together. Their fingers moved so quickly up and down the strings that even at relatively fast shutter speeds, I still got some blur. Gabriela’s energy and bubbly personality was thrilling and contagious. Rodrigo’s intensity was intoxicating and together, they created a spectacle not to be missed next time they come around. They have a huge amount of chemistry due in part I’m sure to their amazing musicianship. You could hear and even see all the passion put into their work when they stared intently at their guitars or even closed their eyes and felt the music flowing through their instruments. They made it look so completely effortless. The people in front were much more respectful than the ones in back, hanging around near the bars, but that can be expected from The Fox. I was just confused as to how people would rather look at their friends than the magic that was happening on stage.
