Local performer, Jack Johnson, played two sold out shows at the SB Bowl this year. The first night, Bahamas opened the show as they did for much of Johnson's tour the previous year. The second night, local musicians, ALO (Animal Liberation Orchestra) opened the show. The two shows were different enough that groupies would have enjoyed them both.
Local and internationally know music sensation, Jack Johnson, played a special tribute show at the Arlington Theatre this month. It's a-typical for Jack to play such a small venue (2,000), so it was a treat to photograph him here.
I did see Mr. Johnson play at the Arlington years ago when he wasn't such an international sensation. I must admit that I was originally planning on take a few shots, watching a few more songs, then leaving early. I've seen Jack play six or seven times previously; he's great, but historically not terribly exciting. This concert changed that notion for me. I ended up staying until the last song was over, fully entertained the entire time.
I must say, Jack, you have definitely grown and upped your game. I'm looking forward to seeing you this year at the SB Bowl.
