Those Darlins got it going on
Whatever it is that sets your rock stars apart from your standard musician, Those Darlins have it. Call it stage presence or je nais se quoi, they got it. The alternative rockers were my favorite act of the Gasparilla Music Festival (I had to leave town before Trombone Shorty played and I was really too busy concentrating on photographing the FlamingLips to enjoy the music).
Here it is almost four weeks after the festival and I’m still not even half way through editing my shots from the two-day event down in my old stomping grounds of Tampa. I haven’t had much time to blog or shoot photos, much less wade through hundreds of images. It has been a wild month with a lot going on at work and with my wife and I selling our condo, buying a new house, getting read to move.
We’re closing on our new house this Friday, so hopefully soon I’ll be able to start giving the blog the attention it needs.
