Monday Photo Blog: Budget Rock RIP edition


October 24th, 2011 by

This past weekend marked the end of the Bay Area’s Budget Rock Fest. Ten years into it and Chris Owen, Mitch Cardwell and the whole gang wisely decided to pack it in. Don’t get me wrong — I’ve had plenty of fun at Budget Rock, but it’s good to see someone call it a day while they’re going on strong rather than dragging it out, you know? So, with that in mind, I thought I’d post a few shots from this year’s blow-out and a few hits/misses from the past few years too.

Ace photographer Kandi Champne Cook was on the scene at Gonerfest this year and graciously shared some of her favorite shots with us here at MRR’s Monday Photo Blog. By all accounts Goner Fest is always a great time…

Monday Photo Blog: Return to Indonesia


September 26th, 2011 by

Of any country besides the US, Indonesia is probably the best represented here on MRR’s Monday Photo Blog. We get a steady stream of submissions from Indonesia photographers. Today’s came back in June from A. Okhi Irawan, a longtime MRR reader. Most of these photos are from the early ’00s “where the Indonesia’s despotic goverment change into reform age, and re-shape how punks movement during that age.”

Thanks for the photos  A. Okhi!
