My good friend, Chris Watson, runs an incredible festival called Music Tastes Good out in Long Beach, California. The festival hosts a wide variety of musical artists, as well as chefs from the area.
I met Chris in 2005 when I discovered Dr. Dog on MySpace when they had 25 friends. Well, Chris was the owner of Park The Van Records, which Dr. Dog was on at the time. Once Chris discovered my love for Dr. Dog he reached out and asked if I would like to be part of it all. I was pretty much in charge of promotions in Chicago. I think we had only hung out about 5 or 6 times, as he lived in Philly/NOLA but we grew to be very close friends during that time. Throughout the years Chris and I became digital brothers. And I have to thank him, because through working with him and Dr. Dog - I went on to meet and work with some incredible people, a lot that I call friends.
Working with these bands is how I wanted to start taking photos. Skip forward about 13 years, he now has this incredible festival and asked me to be one of the official photographers for it!
Thanks for (maybe?) reading my very long intro. Below are a bunch of photos that I took during my weekend at Music Tastes Good
