It has been so long since I discovered Boy Hits Car, and have waited and waited and waited for a tour and a Denver date. Well, my wish finally came true, and they came to town on the Taproot tour, and just tore up the Denver crowd at Herman’s Hideaway on 050913.
I emailed the band, and they were gracious enough to hook me up with a +1 after I told them I have waited so long to see them, and they seemed truly excited to have a Denver photographer catch this set. I promised I would do my best!
I have rarely seen such a polished band, with so much energy, and this ranks up there in my top 5 or 10 perfect shows! It was like a light switch; one minute, they were setting up and tuning the acoustic, and the next they were tearing into The Rebirth and then straight into As I Watched The Sun Fuck The Ocean. Then they didn’t let up for a solid hour, making sure they made their mark on Denver, even mentioning that the last time they played here was in ’93 at the Lion’s Lair. Crap, can you imagine trying to contain all this energy in that hole in the wall?
Embarrassingly, this was my first time to catch a show at Herman’s, but I am glad my friend Sean and I were there early to catch both XFactor1 and Lost Point, too, and to get a feel for the club and the lighting. Now I just need to catch Lost Point here in town, and do their shoot some justice. 24 Gigs was just enough for a few shots of XFactor1, and hundreds of Boy Hits Car. Don’t worry, Lost Point, I’m hooked. You’ll get your chance! I only own so many memory cards!
By the way, Brandon of 54 Peaks Photography, great to meet you, and let’s shoot together again!
What can I shoot for you?
