Ryan and the Relics at Shiner Saloon

My buddies in Ryan and the Relics had a show last night at Shiner's Saloon in downtown Austin. I realized a full year had passed since I last got to see them play at this very same spot. It was hard to believe that much time had passed - I really need to get out more often! With my camera in tow I headed down into the city to grab a beer or two and enjoy some great music. Ryan always puts on an impassioned performance and his band was rock solid. One of the cool things about Ryan's performances is that you can count on him getting some crowd interaction going by leaving the stage to give a more personal performance and maybe borrow a cell phone to use as a guitar slide. That's something you don't see at just any show.

You can check out more photos from the show on my gallery page. All photos were taken with a FujifilmX-T1 and a XF 35mm f/1.4 lens.
