Oh Yeah Legends Awards

Belfast Music Week saw the Undertones crowned as the legends of Oh Yeah this year – the evening was great with a gig from the Undertones, and supported by Colenso Parade, and then Derry songstress Bronagh Gallagher presented them with their award!

Ooooohhhhh wee..

The MTV Mark Ronson aftershow at the stiff kitten a few weeks ago was the first job I did after a weekend of crippling back death after throwing my back out working at a gig – it may have been the serious amount of painkillers talking but I had fun (until i slipped on someones spilt drink, pharmacy fell off the stage and put my back out again – its a dangerous job this snapper lark!)

Mark Ronson takes a break from djing to have a whiskey...

...he wasn't the only one drinking the whiskey

ooh wee?

ahem???

dunno who this guy is but he had a great night 🙂

 

He did it all for the nookie…

So myself and David from Kerrang went rollin rollin rollin down to Dublin (sorry couldn’t help it) to cover the Limp Bizkit gig in The Olympia a few weeks back. A few things surprised me about this gig – first off how many LB lyrics I actually remembered from the first time round, secondly just how much I enjoyed it (I honestly don’t even remember liking them way back when but the gig was great!!) and last but not least how many dudes wore red baseball caps (Fred Durst sadly did not – his was white)

Paramore

Now i know as a “proper metaller” this may come as a surprise to a lot of you but i actually like paramore and when they played in Belfast they were great! the stage show was full of energy and despite a lot of the crowd being literally half my age I had a blast shooting it. This ran at the time as a double page review in Kerrang (I’ll stick a scan up later on) but here are some more of the shots I got on the night (there are loads coz it seems its impossible to get a bad photo of Hayley!)

sometimes one guitar just isn't enough...

...but playing 2 at once can be stressful...

... so they're sticking with one bass for the meantime!
