The Warped tour – Grumpy old man version

I had a booth for STEAL MUSIC BUY ART at the San Diego and Pomona Warped Tour stops this year. We learned at the IT’S NOT DEAD Festival in October that people at festivals really don’t want to buy artwork while attending a festival … They probably don’t have the money with them and if…

Pounded by the Swami

Saturday, April 9, 2016 at the Observatory in Orange County. We saw Swami John Reis and The Blind Shake along with Pounded By The Surf. There was an opening band, but we missed them … Pounded By The Surf were great … Then “Swami John Reis and The Blind Shake” came out and kicked it…

Careful there, I’ve got a new lens in the pit

I got to shoot at the Casbah (San Diego, CA) last weekend. When it’s crowded, The Casbah is a tough place to shoot, especially when Mudhoney gets the crowd going! This was my first time shooting as the¬†owner of the lens of my dreams … I’m pretty happy with it. I felt like the auto…

RFTC | The Bronx | Dead Heavens

In the spirit of trying to keep these posts less wordy, I’ll make it brief: 1. This show was awesome 2. I’ve discovered that I’m a total wuss and prefer a barricade to shoot behind 3. There was no barricade at this show due to a request from one of the rock bands. 4. These…

Death or Glory #7

I guess I’m going backwards, I posted episode #8 last week … Here’s Death or Glory #7 with Derwood Andrews from Generation X and Casey Chaos from Amen. In my mind, this episode epitomizes what Death or Glory is. It’s not an interview show, it’s a conversation between 2 people with interesting stories and you…

people ruin everything

Last week, Sept 25-26, I had the pleasure of hanging out with Scott Reynolds and Chad Price. I offered to help book them a couple shows, one of which was in San Diego, so I drove them down to the show and hung out. It was a lot of fun. We got a room at…

Write Your Obit Before Darting Across Beverly

I had never been to the Bootleg Theater before seeing The Obits there a few weeks ago. It’s an interesting venue. There are 2 rooms. You enter into a room with a big stage, a bar, some tables and stools. This is the smaller of the 2 rooms. The one thing that annoyed me about…

A steak, a baked potato and an Octagrape

On July 19 my new favorite band, Octagrape, played at The Prospector, in Long Beach. This is the second time I’ve seen them and the first time I bought my camera. Their record is GREAT, but live they take it to another level. Jaw on the floor, amazing! The entire band oozes with sweat and…
