Jeff Tweedy of Wilco

Taken at Red Butte Amphitheater, June 25, 2012.

Daily affirmation: Sometimes you just have to say WTF and do the thing you maybe shouldn’t. We learn this from the classics, in particular, Risky Business starring Tom Cruise.

  • Kate Pogue Rau

    Yep, totally worth it. Did you actually get busted, or just with Tweedy’s withering stare?

    great capture. i can’t believe he is only 44. we saw them two nights ago at Red Rocks. Great show. Wish I knew more of his music.

    • Lilly O’Handley

      I just saw them at Red Rocks on the 23rd, too! They played a helluva show. Two encores. O. M. G. When I pulled up this shot, I was transported to “that moment.” LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Amber Gregory

    I don’t doubt that you got busted! I am one of those people who gets media passes and damn you are lucky you didn’t get kicked out / your camera taken away … in SF you wouldn’t have even gotten in the door of a venue like that.

  • Laura Gaunt

    Totally worth it.

  • americanrecluse

    This is great. And, yes, worth it.

    (Insert gripe about venues/bands that do not allow photography, end with brief shout out to Yonder Mountain String Band.)

  • Paul Mayne

    Were you the guy Jeff talked to with the “big ass camera”? Right after he told the security guy to move from the front…

      Ha! Nope. I got busted well before that. But I did cheer his takedown of the security person and his recant when he saw the “big ass camera”. Time for me to level up with a media pass.
