Jackson Browne at SB Bowl 2015

Local artist, Jackson Browne returned to the Santa Barbara Bowl a couple days ago with his full band. Jackson regularly plays around Santa Barbara, always to benefit a local charity. Tonight's show benefitted Sanctuary Centers of Santa Barbara, to help people with mental health conditions.

The show was classic Jackson, but the shooting conditions were about as bad as they get. I was restricted to only two short songs from the left floor wing (far left, stage right); from that vantage point, most of the band was obscured by one thing or another, and I had to wait for Jackson to turn his head pretty far to the right, in order to get a decent shot. To make matter worse, this was an August, 7pm show with no opening act. Translation: still too much daylight for concert lighting, but otherwise, flat, dim, shadow light on stage. The photos aren't very interesting from an artistic point of view.

Anyway, you can see the small gallery on sbbowl.com/photos.
