I shot Sol before at Western’s Lawnstock back in early June. The guy has a great energy to his performance and is really great about involving the crowd. 

He allows photographers to be in the pit for his entire show, which is very unusual, especially as his career has been on a steady climb.

At some point towards the beginning of the set, he took a drink of his water, handed the bottle to me and said, “here have some water.” I was plenty hydrated from the free goodies in the pressroom. So I gave a photographer behind me a sip, turned to the kids in the front row (in second picture), pretended to hand the water to them, but emptied it all over them and threw it into the pit. 

Hands down the most fun I’ve had interacting with a crowd.

Sol’s a pretty great guy and an amazing lyricist. I certainly recommend checking him out.

Former child star Aaron Carter performs at WWU on April 9. The crowd, rowdy in comparison to other shows, left those near the front railing with bruises. Other audience members said they were punched and had their clothing torn while in the pit. During the show, Carter invited two girls onto the stage, one of whom he shared a kiss.

I’m so bad about keeping this blog timely. Here are some of my favorites from the first day of Sasquatch.
