I was excited to photograph Magic Man and The Griswolds at Denver’s Gothic Theatre for several reasons.
First, we were introduced to the latter during UMS a few years ago and was blown away. We’ve kept up with each other on social media since then but I have never been able to photograph them. Chris Whitehall’s pink hair made for fun photos, but the music, of course, is what made the show.
And then I had never seen Magic Man, ever. Lead singer Alex Caplow was all over the stage while bandmate Sam Lee kept to the shadows. It’s an arrangement that clearly works for them, and the crowd, because the place was going nuts.
These two bands are awesome, and I hope to see them together or separately again soon.
