2013 was the first year we took Dex to shows at Red Rocks, and one of them was Foster The People
- so the bar was set incredibly high. It was among *my* favorites of the season for sure. So, of course, I was thrilled at the opportunity to photograph the band when they returned to the best place on earth to see a concert again this year.
If Foster The People's first album, "Torches," was a cassette tape, I would have worn it out. It's the kind that suits your mood even when your mood is all over the place. And when you see this band live, you realize just how much musicality is behind their sound; it's not just some studio creation.
I love their second album "Supermodel," almost as much and, in the case of some songs, even more
than the first album. You may have heard about the mural controversy
and I was glad to see Mark Foster
and the city of LA have come to an agreement, because the artwork is gorgeous as well.
