Concert photos: Mayer Hawthorne with the Stepkids at the Firebird, Tuesday, May 22

The Stepkids took the stage of the Firebird last night looking like something out of a Stanley Kubrick film.

The band was dressed in crisp, clean, white shirts and white pants, with all instruments equally as neutral. A white screen hung with the word "Hello" projected onto it. As the band began their set, their white clothes began to absorb a variety of color blocks and lines, as if absorbing their own music through the colors. The Stepkids excel at taking you beyond their albums, and you genuinely are getting more from seeing the group live.

Mayer Hawthorne was not without props himself, including a large sofa chair, TV dinner table, antique phone and a bobble head in his image. Hawthorne’s initials appeared at the sides of the stage, and his trademark broken heart (taken from his most recent album "How Do You Do") was in bright red neon form.

Hawthorne's set was extensive, and he played quite a lot off both of his albums ("How Do You Do" and "A Strange Arrangement"). Almost midway through the night, Hawthorne took a photo of the crowd and posted it to his twitter feed. He then opted for a photo opportunity for the crowd, and posed for the hundreds of camera phones in the audience for a few minutes. After this was done, he asked everyone to put away their cameras so that they could enjoy the show and listen to the music without any distractions.  The crowd had no problems complying with Hawthorne’s request, and danced their way to the close of the night.
