David Bazan

As I started writing this it struck me as strange that I haven't shared David Bazan as an artist before. He is hands down Ryno's favorite musician, and his was the first show that Ryno and I ever saw together (when Bazan was still touring under the name Pedro the Lion). If I am being completely honest, I was not immediately won over. Although, I really enjoyed the Q&A time Bazan took during his shows. However, over the course of our seven year relationship I have grown to really enjoy Bazan's music. I particularly enjoy seeing him live, and I still love the Q&A sessions.

So when Ryno told me he got tickets to see Bazan record a satellite series here in Austin, I was pretty thrilled. Early in the evening on Tuesday night Ryno, his brother and I all lined up with the other ticket holders outside the studio waiting for the doors to open. We were among the first people to get in, so we had amazing seats right off the stage but still far enough away from the cameras (most of the time). We were allowed to take photos sans flash, so I have some from the night. I was hoping to share the video, but it doesn't seem to have released yet. However, I will share it when it becomes available. Until then here is a video from their tour last year. Also, I've added some photos I took of the show.
