One For the Bucket List

Bucket lists are things made to keep track of events, activities, or actions we want to achieve in our lives. Sometimes they are ever rotating things in and out and other times remaining pretty stationary in who sits on the top. Since I started doing photography with a DSLR camera, concert photography has created a bucket list of bands I want to photograph. One of those would be Youth Brigade, the Stern brothers who not only have left a mark with BYO Records and Punk Rock Bowling, but on East…

A lot are wonderful and usually a few can have those familiar family frustrations.

A Day at the Sidepony Express

A little over a year ago, this festival out of town was brought to my attention. Even though I knew one of the organizers, it was not until I formally met another that it truly sunk in to go. Unfortunately, last year had an overlap of our local Phoenix Ska Punk Bowling and bad combination of not taking Monday off for the longer road trip. However, this year, I took the plunge down to Bisbee and the Sidepony Express Music Festival. Sidepony Express is a festival on its 8th year…

This Is A Protest Song

It has been a while since I last attended a night of completely folk punk bands. The last time was back in June when Escape from the Zoo played the Trunk Space. Like that night, Bad Times played. Although in that case, it was just Diego. For this night, not only did we get all of Bad Times, but there was a first for me with Harley Poe and a favorite in the Homeless Gospel Choir. Opening up was the new look at Bad Times. Taking away the solo performance,…
