After taking some time off to visit Bozeman and Yellowstone (which were lovely, thanks!) I came back in time to find that our rock-star photographer, C.E. Elliott, was gallivanting through New Mexico en route to an Alabama Shakes concert.
The Shakes skipped over Tucson on their Southwestern jaunt, but I'm feeling better about it now that Vampire Weekend has scheduled the Rialto for Tuesday, Oct. 1 (tickets here.) Remember when we thought they were only playing Comerica in Phoenix?
But I digress.
Elliott took some fine photos of Dylan Pratt's show at the Hotel Congress patio on Friday, July 5, when I was away, so here they are. Photos of the July 9 concert to raise funds to replace Heather Hardy's stolen equipment will be along shortly.
A singer-songwriter from Phoenix, Pratt is the son of Norm Pratt, who plays in lots of projects with Bob Meighan, "Mr. Orchidfingers" Jon Rauhouse, and others.
