Coachella 2014 | April 11 – 13

This year, I was lucky enough to get approved for a media/photo pass for the first weekend of Coachella. The photo pass allows me to take pictures from the photo pit of each stage, and being armed with an incredible lens, I’ve taken some pretty amazing pictures so far, and I can’t wait to sift through them all and post what I’ve been able … Read More Coachella 2014 | April 11 – 13

Pearl Jam | Los Angeles Sports Arena | Nov. 23-24, 2013

Pearl Jam got me drunk my freshman year of high school. Well … not literally … let me explain. I was a decently athletic kid back in the day. I played three sports and earned a varsity letter that year in Track & Field. To celebrate Spring break, the varsity letterman had a house party in the hills. A classmate of mine’s brother was … Read More Pearl Jam | Los Angeles Sports Arena | Nov. 23-24, 2013

Filter Magazine’s Culture Collide 2013 | Echo Park | 11/10/13 – 11/11/13

This year (2013), Snoop’s wife’s company, Boss Lady Entertainment, signed an artist from Poland named Iza Lach. I’m a huge fan of her sound/voice, so when I found out that she was slotted to perform several sets during Filter Magazine’s Culture Collide music festival, I was giddy. I was even more giddy when I saw the impressive number of foreign bands set to perform. I … Read More Filter Magazine’s Culture Collide 2013 | Echo Park | 11/10/13 – 11/11/13

Since I had recently looked into purchasing a pair of quality earplugs, I sparked up a conversation in the men’s room … Read More Maya Vik | Culture Collide | 11/10/13

FYF FEST | L.A. State Historic Park | August 24 and 25, 2013

The line-up for the 10th annual FYF Fest was stellar. For only $99, I was able to attend the two day festival, and though I had tried my darnedest to get a press-pass to no avail, I went guerrilla-style to catch those acts I wanted to see and take the best possible pictures I could. Links to the other acts I was able to … Read More FYF FEST | L.A. State Historic Park | August 24 and 25, 2013

      This is a three part blog entry. The link to the following day is at the bottom of the page.Oh, Coachella, how I’ve missed you.
