MUSIC PHOTOS | Richard Marx at Mill City Nights

Photos by Patrick Dunn

The usually open floor at Mill City Nights was filled with seats October 23rd creating a listening party atmosphere that nicely suited the Richard Marx concert. There were of course some ladies who were especially excited to see him perform up close, while most seemed to be appreciators of his extensive catalog of hits. It was nice to see Marx’s personality shine through as he reminisced and joked about the stories behind some of the music that most in the audience grew up around. Out in support of his new album Beautiful Goodbye, he sprinkled in some new material amidst all of his well known hits and also performed big tunes he wrote and produced for other artists including Luther Vandross, 'NSYNC and Keith Urban. The venue had a great feel and had the mix dialed in to a comfortable listening level, which enhanced the dynamic difference between sweet ballads such as “Hold on to the Night” in contrast to his up tempo infectious pop tunes including “Should Have Known Better.” It was a first-class performance and memorable show greatly appreciated by his loyal fans here in the Twin Cities.

MUSIC PHOTOS | The Rural Alberta Advantage at First Ave

Photos by Tom Baker

It's fun going into a show with no expectations. That's what happened Friday, October 17 when I went to go photograph The Rural Alberta Advantage. I had only listened to a couple of their songs, as I was only recently introduced to them by a girl that I like and she was going to the show. So, my nautral reaction was to go with her and I figured at the very least I would come out of it with a few good photos, and perhaps impress her with my camera skills and awkward dancing in a very crowded room at the same time in the hopes she'd want to see me again. I was blown away. They elated the room and created a fan in me. Without research, I couldn't name a single song or album title to save my life. Thank God for Spotify, where I will begin to do diligent listening in anticipation to the next time they come around as I will be sure not to miss them. And yes, I will be seeing the girl again as she is all the more cooler for introducing me to a such a stellar band.

MUSIC PHOTOS | Dan + Shay at Mill City Nights

Photos by Patrick Dunn

Vocal duo Dan + Shay are currently one of the most buzz worthy new groups in Country music. Having song writing credit for all the tracks on their debut album “Where it all Began” is a statement that assures they can back up the hype. Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney chose Minneapolis to kick off their first headlining tour October 9th in front of a fanatical crowd of mostly women at Mill City Nights. The venue was a good fit for the show and sounded great for their set openers “Somewhere Only We Know” and “Nothin’ Like You”. Some of the standouts were “Party Girl” and of course the song that put them on the map “19 You + Me.”
