A few months back I had the opportunity to visit Hong Kong and the city of Dongguan, China. I was there for only a few days but overall it was absolutely worth every minute and was an amazing experience. I just hope to be able to go back some day and explore the region a bit further.
Swedish hardcore punk band Refused ended the US leg of their very unlikely 2012 reunion tour at the sold out Henry Fonda Theater in spectacular fashion. I was lucky enough to snag a pair of tickets to what will probably be the bands last-ever United States gig.
The new Shoot to Kill Media website recently went live. Shoot to Kill is a full service video production company that produces content for a range of applications including broadcast television, web and live performances. The guys at STK are old friends and I had a really fun time collaborating with them.
Holy Grail is an thrash metal band with roots right here in good ol' Los Angeles, CA. Ever since a friend of mine handed me their Improper Burial EP back in late 2009 I was hooked and thought that they would be a great band to shoot.
On Wednesday the 18th, Paganfest rolled through Hollywood, CA. Headlining the tour was the Finnish folk metal band Turisas with support by Alestorm, Arkona and Huntress. This was my third time seeing Turisas, but it was their first headlining tour of North America. Turisas was fantastic as usual, the crowd was super energetic and it was nice to get to experience an extended set from them. Special thanks to Century Media Records for hooking up the photo pass, photos of Alestorm and Arkona will be posted soon.
