HOT Rewind

Happy New Year!!!  I hope this finds you all happy and healthy and over the whole freaking holiday season.  Don’t get me wrong, it was definitely one of the best Christmas/New Years I’ve had in ages – and I’m quite thankful – but GOD!  It started at Halloween??  No, Summer?  Yeah.  Done with it.  And I still have this TREE to contend with!  Anywho…Welcome to the insanity that I believe will be 2012!It’s been fairly quiet the last week.  I managed to check out my friends, Reckless Abandon (who were terrific!), at Center Station in Berlin.  Had pictures too.  I have the sneaking suspicion tequila was involved that night.  No idea what happened to those frames.  Sorry, Sean and Christine.  I suck.  Moving on.

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!
