it’s the last post of the year for Scenes Around Jackson so you know what that means!

it means it’s time to check out the photos from the annual Esperanza Plantation Holiday Showcase!

this year was the 10th(!) anniversary! and for the 10th, just like for all previous years, they held it in the heart of Fondren, at the Pix/Capri theater!

like i’ve said for the last few years, this is clocking in at about a 100+ photo post so don’t expect a lot of commentary from me.

so sit back and enjoy photos of a rocking show!

and, as always, let’s give props to Stephen Barnett of Davaine Lighting for lighting so awesome, we need to come up with a better word than “awesome” to describe it! 🙂

so, without further ado:

The Line-Up! (in order of appearance)

T.B. LEDFORD!

– JOHNNY BERTRAM & THE GOLDEN BICYCLES!

– EL OBO!

BEAR COLONY!

Posted in Color, Digital, Esperanza Plantation Holiday Showcase, From The Archives, rock and roll by William Patrick Butler on December 15, 2009

so, as i was scrolling through my recent entries, it occurred to me that i haven’t posted many photos from live shows lately

coming up on Dec 19th is the annual Esperanza Plantation Holiday Showcase at the Pix/Capri Theater in Fondren.

getting that facebook invite reminded me that i never, actually, posted a lot of the photos i shot of last year’s Holiday Showcase.

well, time to fix that

so sit back and enjoy photos from last year’s kick-ass show.  i’m sure this year will be just as good! (and i sure wouldn’t mind shooting this year’s too.  hint hint!)

A Very Esperanza Christmas 🙂
