When I was younger, I didn't listen to very many kinds of music. (But what I had was very good!) Acts like Nirvana, Seal, Savage Garden and Sugar Ray took a literal back seat, as I only heard them through the car radio as my mom drove me around. As such (and because I was only 8 years old in 1996), I completely missed Soundgarden's effect on music.

Fortunately, I have The Indianapolis Star reporter David Lindquist's review of the band's reunion tour concert, part of the May Day show on Saturday at Klipsch Music Center, to set me straight. Check out the review, in large part because it's interspersed with 10 of my photos. (Fourteen others that I sent appear here.)

So far, I've averaged an assignment per week for the Star since I finished at the Journal & Courier. I would not complain if this keeps up.

I rented a 70-200 from BorrowLenses.com for the Super Bowl before I got my own. I liked them; I think you will, too.
