Jerad Finck @ Highline Ballroom, NYC – 2.20.13
February 21, 2013 | Concert Photography
After I got done filming Jerad Finck for an upcoming episode of Before The Concert, I caught his set at the Highline Ballroom on 16th Street. Jerad is from Washington and has a pop rock/singer/songwriter type of sound and I dug his set a lot. Usually he has a full band performing live but last night’s set was just Jerad. He played second and was opening for dada.
I believe Jerad performed “Can’t Stop” first, which is a catchy tune on the album but it was interesting to see what Jerad did with it solo. Whenever musicians record themselves singing or playing a beat on the side on the guitar, and then uses that as a background loop; it just amazes me that musicians can do that. I guess the little things amaze me. Jerad covered The Cure and played most of his songs off his latest album “Stuck in a Riddle.” I’m not sure, but I don’t think he played “Runaway.” That’s my favorite song that Jerad does. He performed the song “Won’t Give Up,” which you should be hearing on the radio shortly (if you still listen to the radio).
I don’t know if was band specific, but the lighting was great at the Highline Ballroom. Very colorful and wasn’t crazy. I think the lighting helped out my photos a lot. I shot around ISO 2000 just because I could and tried to move around the club as much as possible to get different perspectives of Jerad. Check out Jerad Finck’s website or maybe check out some tunes on Spotify.
