WQHS Goes to Made in America: Day 2

Channel Tres performing at Made in America 2019 Day 2.

I started Day 2 in the mid-afternoon with a visit to the Freedom Stage for Channel Tres. In my four years of attending the festival, this was the only stage at which I had never seen a set. The stage is usually reserved for electronic artists, since it has a robust set up for heavy […]

WQHS Goes to Made in America: Day 1

IDK performing at Made in America 2019 Day 1.

For the second year in a row, I had the honor of covering the Made in America Festival for WQHS. It’s my fourth year at the festival overall, making it an important part of my fall at Penn. The lineup this year made me particularly excited, and I think overall is the best that it’s […]

Wavves & Beach Fossils at Union Transfer

On Thursday night, Wavves and Beach Fossils rocked Union Transfer. By the time I got there, the crowd was already large and buzzing.

Brockhampton at The Fillmore

The performance then? Also Brockhampton. I think it’s a fairly good metaphor for the year they’ve had—moving from the Foundry […]

Blood Orange at the Fillmore

Last Thursday, Blood Orange, the stage name of Dev Hynes, entranced the audience at The Fillmore. Playing a mix of songs from his new release, Negro Swan, and hits from his older albums, Blood Orange created an aura of otherworldliness. Despite the variety in his music, the show felt cohesive: the atmosphere was simultaneously ethereal and […]

Made in America: Day 2

This is part two of my coverage of Made in America. This article discusses Sunday, Day 2. JPEGMAFIA I started the day by heading back to the Skate Stage to catch JPEGMAFIA’s set. I knew some of his music, so I thought I knew what I was getting myself into. I was very, very wrong. He […]

Made in America: Day 1

This year was my third year attending Made in America, but my first year going as a photographer. It was also the largest gig I’ve ever shot. The energy of a festival crowd is very different than that of a concert, where people have paid to see a specific artist. At a festival, people might […]
