For once, I have put shooting aside for a few weeks in order to prepare for my first photo show! I was asked by the Slidebar in Fullerton, CA to display my work on Nov. 5th, 2010 during Fullerton’s Art Walk. I thought about what I wanted to showcase, since I shoot so many different styles of music, and I decided to share my work from the last 4 years of photographing the underground hardcore punk scene in the OC/LA/IE areas. I am calling the show, “BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS.”

I am very excited about this event because I have never done anything like this before. A lot of the images have never been seen before and span over 4 years and 30+ shows. These guys are my friends and now I get to share their passion with you.

I will be selling all of my show pieces for $50. They are 13×19, framed and printed on watercolor paper. Truly awesome.

I will have over 50 different 8×10’s available for $10, featuring bands like COP, Tipper’s Gore, Bad Reaction, ANS, Vitamin X, Total Fury, Bad Man, Dogends, Concussion, Cat Party, Terezodu, Timebombs, Social Circkle, Social Sickness, La Piovra, Government Warning, Friendly Neighbors, Drencoms, Media Blitz, Gross Negligence, Wasted Time, Negative Approach, and more!

I will also have show posters, screen-printed by Jeff Salisbury and hand-numbered out of 100. They will be $5 or FREE with purchase of a print.

The Show is FREE
Starts at 5:30pm til 10pm

I hope to see you on Friday!


Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

HM covers from over the years

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
