Marmalakes @ TKAAFest - 4/6/2013
Marmalakes @ Mohawk - 4/6/2013

On Saturday, Mohawk was host to the all-day The Kids Are Alright Fest, featuring boatloads of activity to benefit families living with autism. It also included music featuring Residual Kid, Holiday, Once Per Axis, Les Rav, Befriend the Bears, Cartright, The Sour Notes, Marmalakes, and Soup.

Sadly I was only able to make it for Cartright and Marmalakes on the outside stage, and The Sour Notes on the inside stage . Pics of the inside state in another post. More pics from Cartright and Marmalakes below...

Griffinshot & Dave the Dog in 2012

I've been hounded for the last few weeks to do a 'best of' post for the shows I've been to and the pictures I've taken in 2012. After several false starts, I decided to just walk through chronologically and try and do justice to all of the wonderful shows without missing too much. Frankly I should be concentrating on posting all of the stuff I shot that never made it live instead of this (woops), but that is next on my list.

The pictures aren't meant to be exhaustive or all-inclusive of what was the best (I'm certain I've missed many things; I'm not even touching festival stuff, and I went to BELGIUM!), but here we go. Personally 2012 was quite the roller-coaster, and every show was a wonderful escape. Some of the shots may or may not be my best work - but if it's in here, then the show, band or bands there, venue and everyone else involved were some of my favorites for 2012 (at least up until November). Loved Gary Clark Jr. and Esperanza Spalding too, but since they are recent you'd find them easily enough.

Have at it. Pictures below. Apologies to anyone I've left out.

Joanna Barbera @ Mohawk - 8/9/2012
Les RAV @ Mohawk - 8/9/2012

Billed as 'Chicks Who Rawk', Thursday (8/9) saw an all female-fronted night at Mohawk with Little Brave, Joanna Barbera, and Les RAV performing. Speaking of Les RAV - you can get a free (in exchange for email and zip) song download via NoiseTrade.

Meanwhile, Little Brave will be recording a Daytrotter session today (8/13),and it will be streaming live at 4:30 CST.

Also worth noting, apparently Dan Rather Reports was filming parts of the night's performances for an upcoming episode about Austin Music.

See pictures of all three bands below (and they did 'Rawk').
