Monday Photo Blog: Three mo’ from Beau Patrick Coulon!


January 26th, 2015 by

Beau Patrick Coulon checks back in to the Monday Photo Blog with three more shots, one looking as though it’s the end of the world, bringing to mind nuclear annihilation — very Cold War-era hardcore punk, also fondly remembered as the Reagan era, and I chose that one to lead this post off. For more from Beau, check out beaupatrick.tumblr.com.

Monday Photo Blog: Ethan M. Sigmon


January 5th, 2015 by

Ethan M. Sigmon photographed the recent Southern Ties fest (now in its second year) in Wilmington, NC. Here’s four for the Monday Photo Blog. Check out his flickr page for a ton more. I particularly like the Society Sucker photo, which is why it’s at the top here. Though I do wonder what the singer from Death Before Dishonor has done to have the crowd up in his face pointing their fingers (and clenching a fist) at him.
