My second assignment of 2014 couldn’t have been better. Pusha T put on an incredible performance at Echsotage last weekend, playing to a packed house despite  taking the stage at close to 1 a.m. I had no idea he was such a charismatic performer, but he really blew me away. This one is definitely going on my best of 2014 list.

SHOOTING NOTES: This was my first time at Echostage. They generally do big EDM shows there, but they’ve recently branched out and are doing more hip-hop and indie rock shows there. The venue is huge and it’s easy to get from the back of the venue to the front, something I really appreciate. There was a big pit for this show and although the lights weren’t great, I was able to get the shots I needed. It’ll be interesting to see how the lights are different next time (if) I go back.
