Show Photos: Wandering Bears in the Hall Mall – 3/13

I caught wind of a secret show in the hall mall, and wandered in on the Wandering Bears warming up in their practice room. Fewer than 20 people jammed into the adjacent room to watch them play through a doorway. I was able to cram myself along the wall in the room with the uber-talented band to photograph them in this intimate setting. The floor was littered with pedals, shakers and Jameson bottles and the air was filled with my fav WB songs. I find it really hard to be in anything but a good mood when these folks are playing.

Catch them during Mission Creek at Gabe’s – Monday, March 28th, 8pm
