Happy birthday to Marcus Mumford, front man of indie folk sensation Mumford & Sons. I photographed and reviewed the band at Ak-Chin Pavilion three years ago, while it was still called Desert Sky Pavilion.
I was initially scheduled to just shoot the show, but I ended up reviewing it as well. I went into the show a casual Mumford fan who enjoyed "The Cave," but after watching the band's full set, I emerged a fan.
A mundane detail that really sticks out about the show was the insufferable traffic. I know this isn't an exciting thing to talk about, but it ended up working to my advantage, as it was the first time I wrote a concert review entirely on my cell phone while being stuck in traffic.
