So many beautiful live concert shots to share with you this week! Canadian indie rockers Stars were in Madison with Wild Nothing last Friday (October 8th) to wow the crowd at The Barrymore Theater with their lush, shimmering sound. Armed with his camera, photographer Joel Hager was there to capture every stunning moment. Enjoy his shots after the jump.
Stars is an apt name for a band that has consistently produced volumes of delightful, sparkling dream pop over the last decade. Their latest work, The Five Ghosts, has been called “soothing,” “haunting,” “fluid and organic.”
We’re so excited to see the band bring these ghosts to life in Madison this Friday (October 8th) at The Barrymore. Considering all the buzz they’ve had in indie circles over the years, we assume you are too! Read on to learn more about Stars, enter to win a pair of tickets to their rapidly approaching show, and enjoy a free mp3 download from the band.
