Playing on a beautiful summer afternoon created the perfect vibe for Bedouin Soundclash's set. Their music was enjoyed by a huge crowd, and they played a lot of their more well-known hits which the audience did not hesitate to sing along to. The day was shot on a Nikon D7000, 50mm f/1.8.

Ex-lead vocalist of hardcore band From First To Last came out full force with his latest musical project. Incredibly insane show, to the point where the barricades could no longer hold the pressure of the crowd! We shot it with a Nikon D7000, 50mm f/1.4.

Birmingham natives Alunah took the stage at the small and intimate Nottingham, Old Angel. Their brand of extremely fuzzed and desert sound is perfect for that venue. A great set and a great feel about the night. We caught it on a Nikon D200, Sigma 24-70mmD 1:2.8 EX DG.
The Queers brought their legendary punk rock show to Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern in front of a rabid audience. There was crowdsurfing, a mosh pot, and even a few scuffles, but a great show all around. Loud and fast, just as a good punk show should be. Opening were The Swabs, The Riptides and The Apers, all putting on a great show. All shot on a Pentax K10D, F 50mm 1:1.4.
