My friend Mark introduced me to a great band the other night. He was doing some concert photography for The Heavenly States and he invited me along to check them out at the Continental Club. I've never photographed a band at this venue and I jumped at the chance. The Continental Club is a legendary live music club that brings in some top acts and attracts large crowds that pack this inmate venue shoulder to shoulder on weekend nights. The Heavenly States put on a fantastic show and I'm now a fan. This group features keyboards prominently in their music, which can be hit or miss with me in the rock-n-roll genres. The Heavenly States make it work quite well with some thoughtful songs and catchy melodies. Definitely a fresh and different sound to my ears. I'll look forward to catching these guys again on one of Austin's many stages.
