Wolf & Bear Summer 2017 Tour by Eric Molyneaux

I spent most of June this year on the road with my friends in Wolf&Bear, documenting the tour along the way. It started in California, then went to Oregon, Utah, Colorado, Texas, Arizona, then back to California.  Was an awesome few weeks meeting lot of new people along the way, and lot of fun long drives in the van.
Hope to do lot more tours in the future, specially since I picked up the 16-35mm Zeiss wide angle lens along with a 3 axis stabilizer for video stuff :). Majority of this tour was just shot on my Zeiss 55mm, while it's an amazing lens, the wide angle just looks so much better in most venues.

We had a good amount of downtime some days so we usually tried to find cool little places to just chill and hangout at like this skatepark, where we did some impromptu group shots.  When we were in Colorado we got to stay at a friends house and they showed us around to a few cool spots (Wish i took more photos while wondering around town). But we did get to hike around a little bit and see some awesome views.

Here's a slideshow of some of the other photos from the tour.

Wolf & Bear Mini Tour April/May 2016. by Eric Molyneaux

I was lucky enough to tag along with my friends in Wolf & Bear on a little tour they did around CA with a date in NV and AZ. It kicked off with a hometown show in Orangevale at The Boardwalk

Next stop was in Fresno, CA at Dynamite Vinyl. Smaller venue but it was still fun and more up close and in your face which is definitely a good thing.

From Fresno we made a quick stop at In n Out then headed straight through the night to Las Vegas, NV. I wish that I took more photos while in the van, the sunrise over the mountains while driving towards Las Vegas was amazing. Finally had some time to rest when we were there. Walked the strip for awhile before we headed to the venue.

After the show we had some a little time to hangout in Vegas before we had to drive to Arizona. Ended staying up most of the night playing roulette and Black Jack. The drive to Arizona was really pretty as well. We ended up going to a tattoo shop since 3 of the members were getting tattooed that morning. Some other stuff was happening that we had to deal with but eventually we were still able to make it to the venue with time too spare.


The next morning after getting a decent night sleep for once we made our way back towards LA. On the way though we stopped by Tyler's families house and had an amazing breakfast and got to relax there for a little while before the long drive ahead.

Here's a little video I threw together of random clips I took throughout the tour as well with all raw audio :). Even in a packed van and not being able to sleep at times, this was one of the most fun times I've had. I've always wanted to do something like this and thanks to them I was able to. Hopefully i'll be able to go on bigger tours in the future.

Wolf & Bear, A Lot Like Birds, and more. - March 11th, 2016 by Eric Molyneaux

When I first saw the lineup for this show, I knew I had to make the drive to Orangevale no matter what and shoot it. I've shot most of the bands that were playing at some point in the past couple years, but a couple of them had line up changes new music released since then. A newer local band from Sacramento (A foreign affair) opened up the show, then another local band who sounded really good but sadly I didn't get to shoot played right after them.

 A Foreign Affair

Next up was Wolf & Bear who I shot 2 times prior to this show and got to be good friends with within that time. They were recording a music video during their set so they had the entire crowd going crazy and shouting along to every song. Their was even an inflatable raft that they brought so people could crowd surf in it. I managed to put down my camera for a few minutes and grab the raft myself and jump into the crowd. It was a little scary at first when the raft was tossing and turning but eventually everyone kept me up and i moved to the back of the room. The entire band always puts on an amazing energy filled shows, especially Marcus and Tyler the two vocalists of the band who have lots of crowd interaction. Here are a bunch of photos from their set.
