// my last minute entry for @azine // •Each year @ (aka my second home) has a Mardi Gras concert series of some really incredible artists and this year I was lucky enough that THE @ were performing AND that the performance fell on the second day of my spring break. •After a long day running around the parks with my sister and one of my best friends, we grabbed a drink and settled in next to the barricade as the sun started to set and the crowd began to gather. I’d been wanting to see Fitz and the Tantrums for a while but somehow never found the opportunity to until this night. As the show began I whipped my trusty Canon out and took in the incredible energy of the band.
@’s presence on stage gave me chills and I love that in this shot I can almost feel those chills again. •One of the coolest parts of the shows Universal hosts is that the performances don’t end until well after the park closes which creates such a wild feeling, everything else in the park is quiet and empty. All of the energy has shifted to focus on the artists on stage and the crowd singing along to all of the songs, all while the iconic Rip, Ride, RockIt lights up behind the stage.
