HOT Rewind Thanksgiving Special
It’s Thanksgiving and the party season commences today, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, the biggest party night of the year. With that comes some of the best shows happening every night through the holiday.
I’ll post my normal blog on Friday but here are my picks for the next 4 days. So get your drink on Wednesday night, enjoy your Thursday, and get your turkey-and-mashed-potato-filled stomachs (and asses!) out there on Friday and Saturday night. You know you’re tired of your family! =)
Occupy a VENUE!!
I could cry about a lot of things that happened this year (as I bet a lot of us can), but I woke up this morning and could feel nothing but thankful. I have my health, wonderful family and friends, and I get to do just what I want…take lots of pictures, see lots of bands, and write this blog.
I feel so blessed as I prepare to celebrate the Season of Thanks with the people I love.
I hope you all have a peaceful holiday with family and friends and hope to see you out and about this weekend! – lsg

Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez aka lsg
Lover of music and the visual arts, Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez is the insanity behind lsg original photography. lsg specializes in artist and performer photography. She’s had the honor of photographing national bands such as Weezer, Snoop Dogg, A Simple Plan, Paramore, Whitesnake, Wye Oak, and The Antlers along with countless local bands and performers.
Hailing from Hartford, CT, Lisa is a life- long music connoisseur. Growing up, her mother exposed her to everything from The Stones to Simon and Garfunkel to Earth, Wind, and Fire to Loretta Lynn…and everything in between. No genre was left unexplored in her vinyl collection. She saw her first concert at 14…Rod Stewart at the (then called) Hartford Civic Center. Thirty years later, it’s still her favorite pastime.
Lisa has two kids (grown!) and a day job. Her loves of music and photography have melded into a second career. And her love of CT keeps her promoting and pushing for local artists and performers. Lisa spends the greater part of her free time seeing and shooting live bands, performers, and artists and art work…and purchasing vinyl!
