UTG PHOTOS: THE LUMINEERS (4/19/13)

Under The Gun sent our newest photographer, Ryan Tuttle, to the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA on April 19 to capture all the fun from The Lumineers show. Review and photos by Ryan below!

On April 19, The Lumineers played for a sold out crowd at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA in between their two weekend performances at Coachella. Aside from the Fillmore, the Greek Theatre is one of the best venues in the Bay Area. Make it a warm spring night, and you’re in for a good time.

The band’s set was comprised entirely of songs off their self-titled debut album, but they threw in one new song featuring cellist, Neyla Pekarek, on lead vocals and a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues.” The audience sang loud and proud to every single song, and the band thanked their fans for continuing to support their music. While “Ho Hey” certainly got the crowd going early on in the set, the hit of the night was their performance of “Stubborn Love.”

The band returned to the stage for an encore and proceeded to play amongst the crowd in the upper section. As they were leaving the stage, lead singer, Wesley Schultz, respectfully asked the audience to put away their cell phones and “be here with us right now.” Surprisingly, many people obliged, while others just couldn’t help themselves. Had I not already photographed during the first 3 songs, I don’t think I could’ve helped myself either. Check out all the photos below!
