The Stanley Cup Finals 2011 - Vancouver Canucks vs. Boston Bruins

Spain vs USA mens soccer at Gillette Stadium

  It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon as the United States hosted Spain in an exhibition soccer match in front of the largest crowd to watch a soccer game in the New England area as over 64,000 fans packed Gillette Stadium.  Most of the crowd cheering for Spain.  From the get go Spain, fresh off the World Cup victory, dominated the entire game beating the United States 4-0.  It could have easily been 8-0 as a few of Spain's shots either hit off the cross bar or just missed the net.

Rubber Revolver, Beat Bitters, and the Aztext

  If you weren't at Nectar's last Thursday night then you missed out on a great night of music on both floors.  Downstairs was Rubber Revolver, a band of local musicians covering the Beatles albums Rubber Soul and Revolver in their entirety.  The band consisted of Mike Pedersen, Clint Bierman, Peter Day, Joshua Glass, and Sean Preece.  Jer Coons and Zac Clark sat in for many of the songs as well.  The place was packed as the group put on an amazing performance.  Upstairs at Club Metronome the Beat Bitters returned to the stage for the first time in a year.  The Beat Bitters consisted of Kyle "Fattie B" Thompson, S.I.N, Jennifer Hartswick, David Diamond, Alex Budney, Caleb Bronze, and DJ ZJ.  The Aztext played a set in between the Beat Bitters two sets.  More photos after the break...

Eastern Conference Finals - Game 2 - Lightning vs. Bruins

  I got to shoot game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night.  What a game... lots of goals and big time hits!  I've shot a lot of regular season hockey games but I was amazed at the intensity of the game in the playoffs.  The Garden was electrified all night.  Check out more photos from the game after the break.
