Radio's 3rd Birthday

It's hard to believe it's been three years since my friend Jack Wilson opened his South Austin establishment Radio Coffee and Beer. I remember when he first told me he about his plans to open a coffee shop and live music venue, I was playing bass in his band and we had just opened some Texas shows for the Lumineers, which were some of biggest shows I had ever played. Radio has become not only a go to hang out spot for myself and many of my friends, but also a central hub for the South Austin music and art community.

For their third birthday celebration, Radio brought in a mobile half pipe and invited local skaters to come do their thing. This was my first time photographing skateboarders and I had a had an absolute blast.

Joshua Tree and Desert Hot Springs

Joshua Tree and Desert Hot Springs

First stop in California was a visit to Joshua Tree with my friend Danielle. The Desert Hot Springs apartment we stayed at had a meticulously curated 60's futuristic interior design aesthetic, and was owned and operated by a local artist/designer from LA who happened to be a really nice guy. He sourced all of the period-accurate furniture from garage sales around town, which he hits up on a weekly basis.

I wish we had more time to spend exploring Joshua Tree, it was truly special, especially just after sunset when sky turned a vivd purple. Even under a near full moon, the stars were incredible. I look forward to coming back for a moonless sky and getting some milky way shots.
