Sara Bareilles had me come out to shoot her two homecoming performances in Eureka, CA. I stayed w/ the band at her dad's house and tried to capture a little bit of home. Gallery here: Above: Sara at sound check, Javier Dunn tosses a ball at Sara's old house, Josh Day w/ a beer before the show, and the band's performance.

Fake Blood, Tommy Sunshine and Scotty B hit the Vanguard for the latest Scion house party. All 3 DJ's rocked it but Fake Blood tore the place down in his first LA performance. For photos of the DJ's and more crowd shots check the GALLERY
Above: People show dedication by waiting in the rain for the doors to open at the Scion Route "Chop Shop" screening before enjoying free beer and popcorn inside. A great film, then off to the Scion house party. GALLERY

Stacy Peralta's ("Dog Town and Z-Boys") amazing documentary about the Bloods and the Crips screened at the Stronghold and was attended by some of the original Z-Boys including Peralta himself who gave a Q+A. Check here to find out more about the film and here for my photo gallery.
Kevin Staniec and ISM Magazine came up with a cool project where talented artists created pieces about broken hearts. I photographed all of their art to be published in a book called "Untitled Love" along w/ short stories about their heartbreak. Here are two images from Saturday's book opening/signing at friend Evan Cerasoli's gallery (w/ more to come hopefully).

Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson (with Mai Bloomfield on cello) performed their amazing new song "Winter Song" together on Leno last night and I captured a few behind the scenes moments (my camera wasn't allowed anywhere near the stage). Here is a portrait of Sara and Ingrid in Sara's dressing room. Here's a gallery of photos and here is the Winter Song music video and performance (skip to 39:30).
