Christkindlmarket Chicago

I've really been feeling the holiday spirit lately, so last week I ventured downtown to check out my first Christkindlmarket at Daley Plaza. Between the decorations, Bavarian pretzels, handcrafted gifts, and German beer, I was one happy lady. I hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday season - and may 2013 bring you all that you wish! Your support of my work is greatly appreciated. (Also, I'm doing a Musical Countdown to 2013 on my Facebook page, so follow along if you're interested!)

Other Lives and Indians at Schubas

It's been way too long since I've been to Schubas for a show and I've gotta say, it was good to be back. The holidays lights were up, making the music room even cozier than usual. When I reflect on all of the musical acts that've passed through Schubas over the years, I can't help but feel honored to photograph there. Oklahoma's Other Lives put on a nice, intimate show. Any band that utilizes horns, violins, and an upright bass is pretty much awesome in my book, so I suppose they didn't have to do much to woo me. Nonetheless, I have a feeling that this band isn't going to fly under the radar for much longer, so check them out! Copenhagen's Indians kicked off the evening with a really beautiful set. His music is raw and emotional and I'm looking forward to hearing more of it. Hope you like the photos - for more, click here.
