Monday Photo Blog: Culture Kids


August 15th, 2011 by

Cripes, I’m due to get on a plane for Alaska soon, wrapping up work shit and late in getting this week’s Photo Blog up. My apologies. This week we’re featuring a local entry, care of Michelle Ross who sent in some rad photos of the Culture Kids, shot at the Knockout in the lovely Mission District of San Francisco. It’s a short/sweet entry. In and out, no bullshit. Thanks Michelle!

Monday Photo Blog: Mayday In Indonesia


August 8th, 2011 by

Past Photo Blog contributor Dinda Advena sent another batch of photos in a little while ago, with this to say:

This is how we spend the last Mayday. It was at Bukit Tunggul, Bandung in Indonesia. The place was up hills, we built a huge camp like a soldier camp for the venue…the rest of us just build small camp themselves. It was really fun.

Looks like a killer time to me. Thanks for the submission, Dinda!

Monday Photo Blog: Atlanta Kills Shit Dead


August 1st, 2011 by

The Powers That Be at MRRHQ forwarded me a particularly killer set of GG King photos that were sent to accompany his interview. I got to emailing the photographer, Tim Song, and it turns out he (naturally) has lots of great photos of other Atlanta bands. So today we have a special Atlanta edition of the Monday Photo Blog. DIG IN!

Monday Photo Blog: Whitney House!


July 25th, 2011 by

A while ago Paul Comeau sent in some photos shot by Dave Zukauskas of some shows at the Whitney House (Hartford, CT) to go along with the Scene Report that ran in MRR #335. The photos didn’t make the issue, but we figured we’d give them time to shine here on the Monday Photo Blog.

Monday Photo Blog: Locals Rule


July 18th, 2011 by

We get more submissions for the Monday Photo Blog from places like Indonesia, former Soviet bloc countries and France than we do from our  own backyard here in the Bay Area. Not complaining — it’s always awesome to see photos of crazy punk bands from all over the world — but it is maybe a little surprising. That said, not too long ago Bryan May sent a handful of photos from the greater Bay Area.
