This was a special day for the Darkplace. It held its first skate contest and outdoor show together! Boys and girls brought their boards and shredded on the ramp the whole afternoon except for when the occasional band would start playing. Then the ramp became host to dancing, foot stomping, moshing and a few performers brave enough to leave the stage and join the fray. It all came with the days cool cloud coverage which luckily didn’t deposit any rain on the shredsters.
Three contests, three prizes, three bands, and it was a whole lot of fun! Another skate contest is in hot demand and is predicted to take place in September!

I present to you—A MAN WITH A GUITAR AND A GRILL!
I felt overwhelmed getting these shots. Not just because they’re of A MAN WITH A GUITAR AND A GRILL, but because I’ve wanted to share the wonder associated with the musicians that have come along and made my jaw drop. I now feel I’m getting to do that. All thanks to Patrick! Patrick loaned me his camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T2i DSLR, and I have been getting shots at all the shows I would usually attend without one. Now I get to take away a piece of them and share it. I have found Flickr to be great for this and I’m glad to claim my moniker ‘DriveAngry3D’ as a username on the site. These and more benefits are becoming known to me as I take on the role of photographer at live music shows and it’s all thanks to Patrick who believed in me when I said I wanted to film things!
