Gig Photos: Pandora Holiday Showcase // Bastille & The 1975 at Pier 36, New York

Hey guys!

I can't remember ever being more excited about anything I've worked on, than I am about house in the sand.
It's one of the best feelings to watch this website grow.

Of course, this wouldn't be as dynamic without the fantastic photographers who have decided to join us.
Gina from New York recently went to photograph Bastille (who doesn't love them?) and The 1975 who played at the Pandora Holiday Showcase 2016.

We're excited to share Gina's fantastic photos with you below!

Act #1: Bastille

Bastille are a four piece band from London, UK.
They play a mixture of Alternative and Indie-Rock with Electronic elements.

Bastille, named after Bastille Day which France celebrates on July 14th, started as singer Dan's solo project back in 2010. It soon turned into the band outfit which consists of:
Dan Smith
Kyle Simmons
Will Farquason
Chris Wood

After releasing their debut single and EP themselves, the band got signed by EMI.
The attention they got from their releases, soon led to support slot, as well as slots at festivals such as England's Glastonbury.

With their second album, "Wild World", Bastille have proven that they are here to stay and create more fantastic music.
