UTG PHOTOS: Flume & The Chainsmokers (4/14/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Kellie Gannon, to Highline Ballroom in New York City to photograph MTV Presents: Artists to Watch featuring The Chainsmokers and Flume on April 14, 2014.

If by now the phrase “LET ME TAKE A SELFIE!” isn’t stuck in your brain on repeat for no apparent reason, let me accidentally-on-purpose ingrain it in there just one more time. On a beautiful Monday spring evening in the city, Flume graced the stage at Highline Ballroom, with support from our friends in The Chainsmokers.

This show was part of the MTV Presents: Artists to Watch Live

UTG INTERVIEW: Jay Mohr On Stand-Up, George Carlin, And His “Hotel California”

“If anyone thinks my show was ‘pretty good,’ then I’ve completely failed.”

It’s hard to edit down an interview when the person you’re talking to is an incredible interviewer himself. Not only did Jay Mohr devote time to our conversation, but he often turned the table, asking me my opinion on various issues.

Furthermore, it is impossible to define Mohr in a succinct way, given that he’s done so many different things so well. You may recognize him as a stand-up comedian or an actor. You may have seen him on Saturday Night Live or listen to his podcast Mohr

UTG PHOTOS: Break Down The Walls Tour (3/29/14)

Under The Gun’s Head of Photography, Corbin Alvae, stopped over at the Break Down The Walls Tour on March 29 in Royal Oak, MI

Feels like it’s been awhile since I last posted a new photo set, but damn do I have some great things to share. A couple weeks ago I stopped over at one of my home venues called Royal Oak Music Theatre to check out the Break Down The Walls Tour, which featured a good amount of amazing talent.

The tour kicked off with Born Of Osiris, or as some fans refer to them, BOO. The Chicago-based …

UTG PHOTOS: Tiny Moving Parts (3/25/14)

Under The Gun photographer, Nick Karp, attended a house show on March 25 in Rochester, NY.

In the depths of a basement in the middle of Rochester, NY held a nit-pick community of kids waiting to see a punk show. Maybe it was the awkward jokes in between sets, or the relentless “selfying” with the bands, but you can tell that most of the attendees had a bond and a sense of camaraderie that is far beyond their mutual love of music.

Every local band was given the same amount of attention, and everyone stayed towards the end to watch …

I Watched Miley Cyrus Cry On Stage For 120 Minutes Last Night

Having spent the last year watching Miley Cyrus transform from Disney Channel starlet to pop music chart-topper most have seen naked so many times that they no longer consider such imagery newsworthy, I knew from the moment the announcement was made that there was no way on Earth I could pass up the opportunity to see her live when the highly-publicized Bangerz tour rolled through Boston’s TD Garden. I expected spectacle and high-gloss raunch to the highest degree, which was delivered from the start, but I did not expect to see America’s most controversial pop star spend the evening reminding …
