Indypendence Concert 2014 with Dirty Heads

Article & photos by Melodie Yvonne Ramey

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (July 4, 2014) – I promised that today I would deliver some Dirty Heads, and I am more than happy to oblige Today for your viewing pleasure I bring you a little bit more of Indypendence Day Concert 2014 in downtown Indianapolis. I will have to admit that Dirty Heads was definitely what brought me out before the fireworks on that warm summer day. They are one of my favorite bands, so you can imagine how ecstatic I was when I found out that it was permitted to bring professional cameras into the concert area. I knew I would already be in a good position to get some shots because I had tickets that would put me in front of the stage.

The concert was, of course, even better than I had expected. Dirty Heads always deliver a spectacular performance and their fans are unlike any others. The positive energy radiating from the stage and the audience on that day could have lit up all of Las Vegas. It was beautiful. They played all of their popular hits as well as some fan favorites, but the best part of the performance in my opinion was the emergence of some songs from their new album, Sound of Change.

The beautiful vibe from the newer songs definitely energized the crowd as much as they did for me. Sound of Change broadens the musical horizon for Dirty Heads and showcases the spectacular talents otherwise unexposed for this motley group of men. I hope my photos bring to you the beautiful joy and love I experienced on that wonderful Fourth of July. Now without further adieu may I present to you my beautiful experience watching Dirty Heads…

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne, lead photographer and owner of Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the age of 5, and was immediately hooked. By the age of 15 she began to turn every trip, even just to the local park, into a fantasy scene of her own imagination, and started mentoring with many local professionals. Melodie received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up listening to many amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when listening to music. Her goal was to help people SEE the music.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography. She published her first print work, a collection of images & poetry, in 2011, and has since published many more print works. Melodie currently acts as owner & lead photographer at Photographic Melodie, House Photographer for Purdue Theatre, and Tour Photographer for multiple Billboard Charts topping bands as well as freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and musicians.
