Late last week I got a chance to see my new favorite band Fort Lean open for We Were Promised Jetpacks at the Black Cat. I declared my love for Fort Lean a few weeks ago after seeing them do a short set at U Street Music Hall. Their surf/rock/pop tunes really struck a chord (no pun intended) with me and I’ve been listened to their excellent EP ever since. I was very excited to get the chance to see them now that I was familiar with their songs.

I’m happy to report that the band lived up to my already high expectations. In a live setting the band is tight and lively and they did a great job of making an audience that was not there to see them pay attention and give them their due. Plus, they are very energetic on stage which makes my job taking photos very easy. Epic hair shots! Big things are ahead for this band, mark my words.
