[Photos] The Shins + The Head and The Heart at Les Schwab Amphitheater

Sunday, May 27th, 2012, 1:36 pm by Ben Salmon

If you’re even looking at Frequency, chances are you know that the Bend Summer Concerts series kicks off this weekend at Les Schwab Amphitheater with shows by The Shins on Friday night, Tenacious D on Saturday and Beck Sunday.

I’ll be posting a bunch of photos of all three here. First up: The Shins, plus opener The Head and The Heart and part of the more than 5,200 people who showed up for the concert.

One of The Bulletin’s photographers, Joe Kline, was on hand to document the evening, and he got a ton of great shots, which you can check out below. Be sure to scroll all the way through — there’s a very sweet little photo and caption near the end!

Per Joe Kline, this couple had just gotten engaged when this photo was snapped!
The guy proposed at the end of the Blind Pilot set. Too sweet. Congrats, y'all!

    Had a fine time at The Shins, thanks again. Desperately wished the volume coulda been turned up a good couple notches. Also would really, really love to know why people insist on going to concerts, going down near the front and talking loudly through the entire thing, but eh, had a good time, glad I made it. Enjoyed Blind Pilot quite a bit.

    Gotta admit though, am the tiniest bit frustrated after reading your thoughts on Beck. I had suspicions that if I chose not to shell out Schwab ticket price for Beck after paying for two disappointing shows that this would be the one where he has fun and sneaks some surprises in to the setlist, and of course, that’s what happened. Mildly frustrating, but hey, I’m happy that everyone had a good time, and it’s definitely good to hear that Beck still has some life left in him.
