An Evening at Portland’s Wonder Ballroom
One of my goals after I quit my day job was to see more live music, since I could now afford to stay out cuttin’ rug all over town. I think I went to one live show, technically before I even finished my final month, and haven’t really kept up on my end of the bargain since then. I’m kicking off 2013 with better intentions, starting with Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside celebrating their new album, Untamed Beast, at the Wonder Ballroom.
I’ve never really gone to a concert with the purpose of shooting an entire set, but I love Sallie’s tunes and was asked to take a few photos. I didn’t have a lot of gear on me, and I didn’t have a lot of angles to work with, but I did have a total blast. Seeing Sallie headbang at the end of their set pretty much made my year in the middle of February.
With some more practice, I could totally see myself falling down this rock ‘n’ roll rabbit hole.
If you aren’t familiar with Sallie and her talented bandmates, I won’t even try to explain it. Just listen for yourself. Check them out on Spotify if you have to, then go buy their records. They’ll have you dancing in the living room while drinking white wine in no time.
