With Hardwell, Le Castlevania & Paul Van Dyk, this is a stacked lineup that you will not want to miss! I’m hoping some Bingo Players gets dropped, but we will have to see what Identity brings us this year on August 17th 2012, at the Shoreline!

Warped Tour 2012 took place at a new venue this year, AT&T parking lot in San Francisco. It was very small and for the first time, Warped Tour supposedly sold out. I was lucky enough to get in with a photo pass and all thanks to Montana. I took pictures of about 15 bands and they came out great!
Yellowcard played on the main stage and killed it. Full set of pictures HERE.
Of Mice & Men’s Austin Carlile performing on the main stage at Warped Tour. For the full set of pictures, check them out HERE.
Breathe Carolina also played the main stage and fired up the crowd at Warped Tour. Full set of pictures HERE.
All Time Low jumped into the crowd and played to the fans. Full set HERE.
There a ton of pictures I took of amazing bands at Warped tour. Check thema ll out on my flickr page. Let me know what you think and share the pictures with everyone. Warped tour was amazing and I plan on taking pictures again next year.
This past Tuesday I got to check out some pretty amazing bands from all over the country play at Slim’s. Although it was a small and not very well lighted venue for photographers, the bands put on one hell of a show and I ended up getting some pretty cool pictures.
Pictured above is the Polar Bear Club from New York who put on a crazy performance! For more pictures, check out the set HERE.
Transit put on a great performance and fans were flying everywhere for them. For the entire set, check them out HERE.
The Story So Far, a local band, was the crowds favorite of the night! For more pictures, click HERE.
Unfortunately I didn’t get pictures of The Wonder Years since they wouldn’t let us take pictures on stage and the crowd was to rough to bring my camera through.
After getting featured on Live 105, doing huge things with Blow Up and now photographing exclusive mansion parties, we are definitely doing it all! Come see Montana and the rest of his crew @ Felix Da Housecat at the DNA Lounge this Friday, we will be there, will you?

I love Santa Cruz and I’ve always wanted to go to a show at The Catalyst. Luckily a great reggae band from Santa Barbra, California put on an amazing show last Sunday night. They are called Rebelution. Pep Love started the night right as the opening act, getting the crowd going. The Green came on next and rocked the stage. I’ve never heard them before but after that performance, they definitely caught my attention. The Catalyst was buzzing with excitement after The Green finished their set. What I loved about The Catalyst was the energy I felt inside. The venue isn’t huge, it has a bar, a pizza place and barricades for the drunk 21+. It was easy to be at the very front and rock out to your favorite band. Everyone was so nice around, even if most of them were under the influence of something. Peace, Love and Reggae. Finally Rebelution came on, going strong with their opener, a member on the saxophone with a spotlight shining on him. They played a 90 minute set playing new and old songs that everyone could enjoy. I knew a bunch of their songs which made shooting pictures of them even more fun. They sounded great and put you into a happy, relaxed mood that made you want to listen to them all night. For the complete sets of all the pictures from the night and previous shows, check out my galleries here.
Rebelution put on an amazing performance! If you love the reggae music and scene I recommend you listen to them immediately. More pictures of Rebelution click here.
The Green at The Catalyst putting on one hell of a show for everyone. More pictures of The Green located here.
and finally Pepe Loe, the opening act who dropped some awesome beats and rhymes to get the crowd moving. More pictures of Pep Love located here.
We are definitely stoked about this over here at Hippie Magic!!!
Yo check out my boys MANICS, literally killing it! It’s a Childish Gambino remix, definitely give it a listen.
Let Alex Drachnik do the talking in this video…
Two big things happening this night, first obviously Blow Up, and it’s going to be Jonathan Saunders birthday! So I’ve taken the liberty of doing the second half of the photo booth for my good friend Jonathan, so he can enjoy himself!
If you haven’t checked out his work yet, please do so. It’s phenomenal, you can check his page out right here! I personally want to wish Jonathan a Happy Birthday, and of course a shout out to Blow Up, it’s gonna be intense! Click the picture for more information about the event!
