From Laura MeekďDig a short leg of the FG Tour with us????Ē Trae Vedder (Do2W) needed no other words, and I was game. We talked it over in July, and over the next few weeks leading up to the tour, I worked on collecting film of all kinds to add to the camera bag. Film photography is quite a substantial part of my work. Iíve always loved the tones created by the...

The Favorite Gentlemen Tour is wrapping up this week. We have a few more photo features to bring you from the road. Today we're featuring Alex Gibbs' feature during the Charlotte, NC stop of the tour. Below are Gibbs' thoughts on spending time with the tour.
Message from Alex GibbsMusic in a lot of ways is where I started getting really passionate about photography. There was just something so cool about documenting bands that came through Atlanta (where I lived at the time) and friends' bands that were from the area.

The Favorite Gentlemen Tour recorded Daytrotter sessions early on in the tour's run. Today all four sessions have been released here, here, here and here. Below, Harrison Hudson reflects back on the recording.
Harrison Hudson on DaytrotterWe showed up to a non-descript house in north Nashville. We walked into the gated yard to the side of the house where the large steel studio doors stood. We met the engineers and then moved quickly to setting up. The main difference between recording live and playing live is trying not to move to much. Creating excess noise, being out of breath or most importantly, your headphones falling off, are things you want to avoid. We played our first...

The Favorite Gentlemen Tour kicks off this Thursday night in Nashville, TN. Instead of profiling the bands ourselves, we decided to let the artists do that for us, because that's where I personally like to hear about other bands - from my favorite bands. We asked a member of each band to write-up a piece about another band on the tour. Today All Get Out talk about the tour's opener, Junior Astronomers. Head to the band's AP.net profile as well to listen and download "Touching War," a new demo from the band.
All Get Out on Junior AstronomersWhen you're in a touring band there comes a moment when you stop and take an estimated guess at how many shows you've played or attended over the...
