Lukas Rossi and Stars Down played a concert in Santa Ana at The Galaxy Theater recently, along with another one of my favorite bands – LA Guns – so of course I had to go! Who could resist? This was the first time I’d heard this particular line up of the band, and I loved the fact that they have two guitars now! Plus Lukas sounded as good as ever – he really is a huge talent!
I’m posting a few images from this concert as a teaser, but there are more in the RockBandLounge.com slideshow… http://rockbandlounge.com/news/2010-08-20-stars-down/
This is just a selection of images – to see a slideshow with more from this concert, go to http://rockbandlounge.com/news/2010-08-20-stars-down/
It’s always fun when one of my images gets used – especially when the gig is at one of my favorite venues!
SEE Magazine – a weekly printed magazine in Edmonton, Ontario, Canada – recently did an article on Lukas Rossi and his new band, Stars Down, and it featured one of my images. And it’s currently also available online! You have to click on the image to make it bigger, but it looks good!
From the article…
Forced to define “rock star,” he says it’s someone who affects people with their music, writes honest songs, and reaches deep within to express something true to them and their fans. All of which Rossi is attempting to do with his new project, Stars Down.
I like that definition! And I love seeing my work in print…
I posted a little tease last week, but here’s more from my session with Lukas Rossi and Stars Down for RBL. We shot it in late June on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles – so if you know the area, you may recognize some of the locations…
The full slide show is at http://www.rockbandlounge.com/news/2008-07-stars-down/ – and it’s definitely worth viewing there! It’s big and bold and beautiful! And if you have any comments or questions, there’s a discussion thread on RBL at http://rockbandlounge.com/forum/topic.asp?topic_id=7184
Last Friday night I went to see a brand new band – Stars Down – featuring one of my favorite singers, Lukas Rossi. It was their very first show, and they opened for Berlin at Crash Mansion in Los Angeles. It was great! Lukas and his new bandmates play like they’ve been together forever – it was a totally polished performance. Plus, I just love seeing Lukas with a full band!
Then the next night they threw a party for their families, friends and a few of their biggest fans at The Mint. I got to go because I know a few of his biggest fans, and they got me in – and I was really grateful, because it was a fun show! The images below are all from that night!
