UTG PHOTOS: Allen Stone & Bad Rabbits at Terminal 5 (10/9/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer Kellie Gannon to photograph Allen Stone with Bad Rabbits at Terminal 5 on Thursday, October 9 in New York City.

Allen Stone should already be a household name. If he isn’t known in your household yet, shame on you. Same goes for Bad Rabbits. These incredible artists always put on the most energetic, interactive, funky shows. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing both multiple times over the past few years and every show just gets bigger and better. If you have never attended a live show for either artist, you needed to put that on …

UTG PHOTOS: Bayside & I Am The Avalanche At Music Hall of Williamsburg (10/4/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Kellie Gannon, to Music Hall of Williamsburg in New York City to photograph Bayside on October 4, 2014.

Over the years, I have seen Bayside play on a vast array of stages, some with only a handful in the crowd and some with enormous festival crowds. Seeing Bayside play Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn was a very special show. MHoW isn’t the largest venue in the city, but it was perfect for Bayside’s Brooklyn hometown show and the venue was sold out and packed to the max.

Supporting acts on this tour included Seaway

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 PHOTOS: G-Eazy & Rockie Fresh (3/27/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Kellie Gannon, to Irving Plaza in New York City to check out G-Eazy on March 27, 2014.

Having just moved to Brooklyn six short days before shooting G-Eazy at Irving Plaza, I can proudly announce that I am officially a brand-spanking-new New Yorker! I was more than excited to get a New York City show under my belt to compare how different it really was shooting in the Big Apple versus venues in Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Toledo, Columbus, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, and any other city I’ve had the opportunity to shoot shows in previously. Typically, …

UTG PHOTOS: We Butter The Bread With Butter (2/16/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Kellie Gannon, to photograph We Butter The Bread With Butter at St. Andrews in Detroit on February 16, 2014.

We Butter The Bread With Butter. Say that five times fast, I dare you. For starters, this band is my wild card pick for band to watch in 2014. As a fan of many genres, I’m always looking for new tunes and bands with a unique sound and when I started YouTube-ing around for this band’s previous work, I stumbled upon their extensive appearances at European festivals and tours and was instantly impressed. Don’t judge …

UTG PHOTOS: Tegan and Sara (2/7/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Kellie Gannon, to photograph Tegan and Sara at the Masonic Auditorium in Cleveland on February 7, 2014.

I have to admit, I’ve had a girl crush on Tegan and Sara ever since I first heard “Walking With A Ghost” a decade ago. This killer track, from 2004′s So Jealous, ended up on countless mix CDs I made that coincided with my new driver’s license and newfound freedom to cruise around and blast whatever tunes I wanted.  That was ten years ago — fast forward to now and I was more than psyched …

UTG PHOTOS: Palisades and Famous Last Words (1/29/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Kellie Gannon, to check out Palisades and Famous Last Words at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland on January 29, 2014.

It’s been a few months since I’ve attended a show with the intention of shooting photos.  For the first show in too long, I decided to check out Palisades and Famous Last Words headlining the Agora Ballroom on Wednesday, January 29 (when Peabody’s shut down in Cleveland last fall, the crew took over and renovated the Agora Ballroom). Palisades and Famous Last Words are currently co-headlining the ‘Ride or Die Tour’ sponsored by MerchNOW and …

UTG PHOTOS: THREE DAYS GRACE (8/11/13)

Under The Gun sent Head Of Photography, Kellie Gannon, to House of Blues Cleveland for Three Days Grace on August 11, 2013.

During the very music-filled and crazy busy month of August, I was able to see several incredible and musically diverse shows. One of the shows I had the chance to catch mid-month was Three Days Grace at House of Blues Cleveland on August 11.  Direct support on this tour came from fellow Vegas natives, Otherwise, as well as Trapt.…

UTG PHOTOS: SILVERSUN PICKUPS (8/8/13)

Under The Gun sent Head Of Photography, Kellie Gannon, to the Agora in Cleveland August 8 for Silversun Pickups.

Silversun Pickups headlined The Agora in Cleveland recently with direct support from Mona, who are originally Ohio natives. Silversun Pickups are always a joy onstage, both from their intense sound and presence.  I had the pleasure of catching them the last time they came through Cleveland and their set was immaculate. This show was no different!…

UTG PHOTOS: Imagine Dragons With The Neighbourhood (7/30/13)

Under The Gun sent Head of Photography, Kellie Gannon, to check out Imagine Dragons at Jacobs Pavilion in Cleveland on July 30, 2013.

Every summer, a tour comes through town that surpasses all the rest. Summer is a time for incredible shows available at outdoor venues, offering fans a chance to cherish the warm weather, summer nights, and soundtrack of their favorite bands set amidst dusk in the city. If I had to vote on a breakout tour that exceeded my expectations and was the best of summer 2013, Imagine Dragons with The Neighbourhood would be it.

Imagine Dragons headlined …

UTG PHOTOS: MAC MILLER (7/24/13)

Under The Gun sent Head of Photography, Kellie Gannon, to House of Blues Cleveland for Mac Miller on July 24, 2013.

Mac Miller descended upon Cleveland this week, bringing his version of crazy to a sold out House of Blues on Wednesday, July 24 for his Space Migration Tour. Along with Mac, Chance The Rapper and Earl Sweatshirt graced the stage and got the crowd in full blown hip hop show mode.  What’s the difference between a rock show and a hip hop show at House of Blues? Like night and day on different planets in two different universes.…

UTG MUSIC HISTORY & PHOTOS – THE SAX MAN (7/18/13)

UTG sent Head of Photography, Kellie Gannon, to House of Blues Cleveland for the filming of the final scene of The Sax Man documentary on July 18, 2013.

“It’s really good to be here this evening… it’s really good to be anywhere this evening!” – Maurice Reedus Jr.

Thursday, July 18 after a long day in the sun, heat, and humidity at the Vans Warped Tour stop in Cleveland, I hopped in a cold shower, changed into fresh clothes, grabbed the camera, and made my way down to House of Blues. I’ve been at HOB for easily about a hundred …
