Wavves, Twin Peaks, and Steep Leans @ The Opera House – September 27, 2015

I photographed Wavves, Twin Peaks, and Steep Leans at The Opera House on Sunday, September 27. I was near the front of the stage when Wavves started their set. That’s when all hell broke loose and bodies started going up. Someone landed on me and knocked my glasses off. It was a miracle that I somehow grabbed them before they tumbled onto the floor, where they surely would have been destroyed. After that, I just wanted to escape the madness. “Get the $&@! outta my way!!” I yelled, as I plowed through a throng of teenagers. Shot on assignment for A Music Blog, Yea? You can see the full set of concert pictures right here.

The Mandevilles @ The CNE – August 22, 2015

Welland, Ontario-based roots rockers The Mandevilles are one of my favourite bands to photograph. They played three sets over the course of 3+ hours at The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) in Toronto on Saturday, August 22, and I was there to shoot it.
