Jennie Book (@jenniebookphotography) is a freelance writer and photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. After growing up in a central California live music wasteland and using the local record store and the Los Angeles Times concert calendar section as her bible, she got permanently out of town in time to see seminal shows like Tori Amos at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, Nine Inch Nails at Helter Skelter in Hollywood, and Depeche Mode at the Rose Bowl.
