.1:25am.. Death Before Dishonor Magazine. I got an email just now from a guy named Ben Reader, who is a photographer in Melbourne Australia, telling me how much he liked my photos he saw of Boys Night Out in a magazine called Death Before Dishonor. I had totally forgotten that I sent them photos a while back to use in the magazine so it was really cool to know they finally used them. In the same issue they also used photos of The Cancer Bats, Atreyu, and Every Time I Die. I got Ben to take photos of the pages with my pictures in them so I could post them on the site. Hopefully I can get my hands on a copy of the magazine sometime soon as well.
.1:25am.. The Carps. The other day I went to see The Cool Kids at the WrongBar here in Toronto and I ran into my friend Jahmal who plays drums and sings in a band called The Carps. I met Jahmal last time The Cool Kids came through Toronto and The Carps opened up for them. I also had done some promo photos for them the night of the show and I never ended up putting one on my site so I decided to go way back and post this photo from that shoot.
If you don’t know who The Carps are then I recommend you go to their Myspace by clicking HERE. I am not even sure how I would go about describing the type of music they play other than by saying its really awesome.
.1:33am.. Alexisonfire. Like I said in my last post, I was going to the Alexisonfire show at The Sound Academy yesterday and bringing my camera along as usual. I missed the two opening bands but I still managed to make it with a little time before Alexisonfire went on.
I am going to try to keep the writing to a minimum with this post because there are a whole lot of photos.
.1:33am.. Skate 4 Cancer Myspace. I just got a text from Rob telling me to check out the Skate 4 Cancer Myspace page so I went to have a look and I saw that they have used a photo I took of him in the main banner.
.1:33am.. Protest The Hero on MTV Live. Yesterday I posted the Fuze Magazine page with my Protest The Hero photo and right after I went out for coffee with my friend Dee from I Hate Sally. We were talking for a while when Protest The Hero was somehow brought up and she had remembered they were supposed to be playing on MTV Live at 6pm and that she was supposed to go. I had no idea they were even playing so I made a few calls and managed to get hooked up with access to photograph the show with about 45 minutes to get there.
Like I said in my last post, Protest has a new album coming out on Tuesday called Fortress which everyone should go and pick up. They are having a listening party for the album tomorrow night which I am hoping I am able to make it to.
Along with Protest, MTV Live also had Degrassi: The Next Generation’s, Adamo Ruggiero on the show talking about his recent coming out about the fact that he is gay.
Now if all of that wasn’t enough for you, I have posted more of the photos on Former Transformer which you can check out by clicking HERE
.2:51pm.. Fuze Magazine. I was just sent this months issue of Fuze Magazine from Germany with one of my photos of Protest The Hero in it. I dont understand a single word in this magazine but its still kinda cool that my photos are being spread around the world.
Protest The Hero have a new album coming out this coming Tuesday called Fortress. I have heard most of the songs and I gotta say, if you liked what they did on Kezia, you will go nuts for Fortress.
