When local musician Adam Wright discovers a band, he pays special attention to its aesthetics. He looks at the album artwork, photos taken at live shows and the band's music videos.

"Bands will try to do very DIY music videos where they film themselves on a phone, and it isn't very great," Wright said. "I found that if I don't like the video, I'm going to stop watching, no matter how much I liked the song. It can just turn me off from the band completely."

So about a year ago, Wright went into business offering professional photography and videography for musicians--and their budgets. On First Thursday at District Coffeehouse (219 N. 10th St.), Wright's favorite live concert photos from local and touring acts will be on display

"There are a lot of people putting out great songs and great records, but they have their friends do their promo photos and album artwork, and it's not a great representation of the quality of music they put out," Wright said. "I want people to see that the band puts in effort to make everything it releases high quality."
