Whenever bands that mash the cap lock perform, photographer Patrick Ainsworth will be there to document the moment.

Recently, rock band AWOLNATION returned to New Orleans and the House of Blues for the first time since playing Voodoo last Halloween. Nights later, EDM act SBTRKT played The Republic. Photographr Patrick Ainsworth was at both to capture two very different spectacles. AWOLNATION is a conventional rock show that is all about singer Aaron Bruno, while SBTRKT's main man Aaron Jerome does his best to obscure his identity.
