Since joining Concerthopper, I have had some incredible opportunities to do photography at some beautiful venues in Georgia such as; The Tabernacle, The Masquerade (old and new), and Terminal West to name a few. And for this, I am most thankful for all who have helped me along the way. Most recently, I was able to shoot at a brand new venue (for me) that I have always adored and respected: The historic Georgia Theatre in downtown Athens. So join me on a photographic recap of this jam packed night full great music with both Lotus and Marvel Years!
Lotus has always been one of my favorite jam bands that can be also categorized as a jamtronic band. The band formed way back in 1999 at Goshen College in Indiana and have released ten (10) LPs, one (1) EP, and two (2) live LPs to date. During their performance you can really hear their deepest musical influences seeping through their music like; Talking Heads, Kraftwerk, Brian Eno, and Air. Want to check out some of the vibes Lotus is throwing down? Here is a link to their official Soundcloud page and see what you think. Check out the entire set list from this 2 set extravaganza performed by Lotus that even had a Tame Impala track thrown in for good measure as an encore.
Set I:Middle Road, Livingston Storm > Mikesnack, Move Too Fast > Flower Sermon, In An Outline
Set II:Cold Facts, It’s All Clear To Me Now > Tip of the Tongue, Wooly Mammoth, Ra Ako St, Umbilical Moonrise, Greet the Mind
Marvel Years (a.k.a. Cory Wythe) has taken the EDM world by storm with his exceptional blending of blues, classic rock, EDM, retro-funk, soul, jazz, and hip-hop into a groovy, funky sound that keeps the dance floor very busy. I was really excited to see what Marvel Years brought to the table during this performance in comparison to the time I saw playing for a festival crowd. And after watching this performance, I cannot wait for this year’s Shaky Beats Music Festival where we get to cover Marvel Years once again! Want to check out some of Marvel Years?
