Phantogram at The Observatory in Santa Ana
This past Sunday I was allowed to shoot Phantogram at the Observatory in Santa Ana something that brought back nothing but nostalgia. I first heard of Phantogram when I was in High School and my friend mentioned them to me. He told me to listen to Mouthful of Diamonds and at first I was like "its ok". It was until I actually sat down and truly listened to it that I was presented with something special. Eight or Seven years later I still love listening to Phantogram and have seen them live three times over the years. Once at the Los Angeles 4th of July block party and then at the Shaun White Air + Style, and every show I have seen they impress me.
This time I got to get close, listen, see and photograph them all at once. This is an honor and an experience I will never forget. The show was sold out and the house was packed. If I were to go back in time and tell my younger self that I would be doing this, I would not believe it. This show was a blast and seeing Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter do what they do best is something that everyone has to experience.
