That time Chris Weingarten and I ran into John Joseph of the Cro-Mags at the airport… 
He told us so many good old NYC hardcore stories so quickly.

Make sure you check out the photos from Day 3 of Fun Fun Fun Fest that I posted last night! 

Fun Fun Fun Highlights: Cro-Mags.

Hard Art DC 1979 is a photo show by Lucien Perkins that I donated some money to via Kickstarter a while ago. The show is insanely important to me because it features some of the first images of punk rock photography that really inspired me to become a photographer. It also features a lot of images of the band Trenchmouth that was fronted by my best friends brother Charlie Danbury. Charlie was my closest connection to the early 80’s DC punk scene which impacted my life in such a serious way as a teenager.
Over Christmas I went down to check out the Hard Art show in DC and I met the Danbury family down there. Alec MacKaye met us down there. He is featured in the images as a little boy and ended up writing much of the the text that is going to accompany the images when Hard Art becomes a book. Alec and Charlie hadn’t seen each other in 30 years and I convinced them to take this photo reenacting one of the photos right behind them.  It was a great moment.
When my grandmother died this summer I inherited a small amount of money from her. She was a lover and collector of art and I couldn’t think of anything better to spend her money on than photos from this show. I am purchasing three images from this show… one image of the Bad Brains, one image of the Teen Idles and of course one photo of Charlie Danbury and Trenchmouth. 
I could not be more excited about these photos…

Check out Badman Shark’s straight edge mix tape, “If You Aren’t Now, You Never Were”.

The opening two songs are one of my favorite hardcore bands Snapcase followed by one of my favorite hardcore songs ever Firestorm by Earth Crisis. I would also like to point out that last sentence was very ugly.

Oh, and there is also a T-shirt!

Paint It Black At Fun Fun Fun Fest.
The bassist of this band kicked my camera which seems like pretty good karma after I defended Odd Future for slapping cameras last weekend.

I found a CD with a bunch of punk and hardcore Mp3s on it at my parents house. I am pretty excited about it. 

This is NYHC’s own H20 doing Family Tree.
