Photo Gallery: SkaterCon 5

SkaterCon 5 marks the last live music I was able to capture before we all went into self-quarantine mode. For that, I am happy because it stands one of my favorite events in Arizona. It is wonderful that it was able to go off without a hitch once again this year. That is from the professional skaters to the skating competitions to the live music, it is an excellent amalgamation of things coming together for the sole goal of celebrating skating. This year brought music from McRad, 16, Boneless Ones,…

Photo Gallery: Le Tour DeVore 5

I’m back to going through photos from my backlog. This time going to January to the Le Tour DeVore. Jason DeVore, of Authority Zero, brought through a star studded cast of Howi Spangler, of Ballyhoo, Chris DeMakes, of Less than Jake, Gabo, of Fayuca, and Russ and Chris, of Meager Kings to the Yucca Tap Room. The tour entirely acoustic, giving people the opportunity to see these guys play their band’s songs and their own. That included an early peak at Chris’s first solo project live. Getting the chance to…

Photo Gallery: Escape From the Zoo at Big Surf House

What a time to start getting caught up on photos I have taken. Right now we are show less live, but plenty of online streams by a lot of our favorites. Though while shows were happening and we weren’t being asked to self-quarantine, there was an excellent folk punk show at the house known as Big Surf. In town, we had the Folk Ska Punk band, Escape From the Zoo. Joining them again on this tour would be Marissa, Jesse Sendaja’s sister, solo and this time with additionally with her…

Photo Gallery: The Adicts at the Marquee

There are bands that just make the entire set a magical experience. For me, one of the best bands at this is the Adicts. Monkey’s flair and way for the theatrics with various props bring this. Add in the happy faces of Pete Dee to Kiki Kabel while performing to add to the joyous feeling brought out in any given set. For me, it was a top of the bucket list to get the chance to take pictures of one of my favorites in punk rock, The Adicts. Though speaking…

Photo Gallery: Sore Eyes, Sad Dance Party

A small update with this one makes it a perfect photo gallery post. The evening after taking pictures for a friend’s wedding, I swung by Sore Eyes’ house show celebrating the year anniversary since “It’s A Party, Why Not?” I snapped a couple shots of Sore Eyes, Sad Dance Party, and even two with Still Drunk Still singing with Sam. There is no reason they should go without being posted, so here you go!

Photo Gallery: The Revenge

There are a few gems in the Phoenix punk scene that don’t play too often. One of them being The Revenge. Fronted by Dennis Welch, a personality in his own right, and joined by matching personalities behind him makes for one explosively fun set of punk rock. Wit is thrown, beer is thrown, and all out blast is had. Snuck into this gallery is two shots that turned out of the excellent We Were Stereo too.

Photo Gallery: Phoenix SkaterCon 4

It was my second year, and the fourth of the every growing Phoenix SkaterCon. You could see the fine tuning in the layout at the Paradise Valley Skate Park. The event is turning into an entire day as it extended to Kool Keith and an After Party of music at the Yucca Tap Room. I repeat my sentiments from last year, this is one of my favorite Phoenix events to attend. With that, I brought my camera out to the main afternoon to capture killer music and moments. Unfortunately, due…

Photo Gallery: No Lungs, Zero Degrees North, The Jaunts, and Sore Eyes

It was a night of a perfect combination of locals over at 51 West. Sore Eyes opening up with high energy. However, due to illness and down members the Jaunts went acoustic for this set. Then it was back to high energy, high flying as Zero Degrees North and No Lungs closed it out. A fantastic night of local music melting faces. Check out a few of the shots from the night below.

Photo Gallery: 88 Fingers Louie, Decent Criminal, Wewerestereo, and No Gimmick

Last month we had the pleasure of catching 88 Fingers Louie for the first time in years, and first time in general for me, in Phoenix. Joined by Decent Criminal on the tour and the excellent locals Wewerestereo and No Gimmick, this was easily one of my early favorite shows of 2019. While I’ve been busy trying to get the Concerts to Consoles show going, I fell a little behind. Despite that, I wanted to make sure you saw a little bit of this awesome night of music!
