ah yes, this was an early birthday present from my ma. The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins & Pearl Jam for 30 bucks!!! in a club that holds no more than a 1000 ppl no less. pretty epic lineup considering what became of all 3
Hang The DJ week 36 is up, let’s get it! 5 new tracks plus 11 tracks in honor of the shitty week I’ve had dealing with a water line break. Kicking things off with The Dirty Nil, whose excellent new album has been added to my best of the year list. We’ve got two tracks from them this week as they also dropped a ripping Metallica cover on this records as well. New single from the reunited Smashing Pumpkins. Say what you want, but I’ve always loved this band. New single from Scotland’s We Were Promised Jetpacks and two new tracks from the recently discovered Jetstream Pony and Moaning Lisa.
Now back to that water break. It sucked. Nuff’ said. So here are some water-breaking pipe-fixes-that are gonna cost me money vibes for the week. Until next time, as always, PEACE!

Sometimes a soundboard shoot is better than from the photo pit, and the visuals of this show were what made it all the better. This was not just a concert, it was an experience, and it was an honour to photograph the man, the myth, the legend, Billy Corgan, and almost the entire original lineup of the Smashing Pumpkins!
#tbt Fun fact: I spent some time in the recording industry. Much of those years was with a band that introduced me to the true definition of hard work. A time in my recording career that solidified my foundation mentally, spiritually and physically. The success and failures through the years has taught me to accept healing, and to grow stronger as a human being. Ahé héé, I’ve accepted the path I walk and look forward to where it may lead 🙏🏽
