7908: The Aspen Songwriters Festival (see previous post) was a tremendous success. Also this weekend Belly Up brought in Lukas Autry Nelson (Willie's hard-rockin' Son), Wanda Jackson, The Queen of Rockabilly,--a 2009 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, in her Aspen debut and Texas rockers Los Lonely Boys (we're to tired to go--share your pix).
Lukas Nelson has played Belly Up twice previously with his band, Promise of the Real. Its always a full-on rock show, and the band keeps getting tighter and tighter. This time Greg Stump and a BIG TIME film crew documented the whole concert. Digital shooters were everywhere including a major robotic boom-cam. Go Pro 's were abundant, head cams and fret cams and amp cams. It was a kick A$$ show and hopefuly we'll see it on the big screen in a multi-plex soon.

Yes we know some of our photos are blurry. We like 'em like that. We could upgrade our equipment, get a tri -pod or some sh*t..... thats not how its done at AspenSpin. Point and shoot baby, capture the energy...thats our thang. Lukas is a whirling dervish of Rock and Roll, and our slow camera caught the motion. Wanda was a little easier to shoot...but no less rowdy. We like our pix, hopefully you do too.
Wanda Jackson broke into the music biz in 1955. She toured with and "dated" Elvis in the fifties. She's in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She and her band, The Dusty 45's rolled into Aspen for a flashback rock n roll show. This is one 73 year old lady that can still rock. Her latest album was produced by Jack White...and she's very hot right now.
