As most of you know by reading this site, that I am a self confessed, unapologetic HIM fan. Guess what? In case you didn’t know, their 8th studio album, Tears On Tape will be released this month already to very strong reviews. I’ll be heading to Los Angeles and Chicago to cover their mini promo tour here in the USA. Stay tuned for photos from my adventures and a review in mid May!

I was very fortunate to get to photograph VOLBEAT at Piere’s Entertainment Center in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Having been the fifth time I’ve seen the band perform live, VOLBEAT continues to put on a killer live show. Their relentless North American touring has made this Denmark based band a force to be reckoned with in the United States with well over a million fans on Facebook and multiple hits playing on every rock radio station. It was a pleasure to see former Anthrax guitarist, Rob Caggiano shred along with the boys as Volbeat’s new addition to the band. He fit in like a glove and his stage personality was infectious and fun and he along with the rest of the guys were very cool to hang out with after the gig.
As of April 8th, VOLBEAT’s sixth studio album Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies is available now in stores and on iTunes. I would personally like to thank VOLBEAT and their management for the photo opportunity. If you’re looking for a rockin’ good time to spend with your friends and like to get rowdy with heavy guitar action and a little Johnny Cash on the side, check Volbeat’s tour dates and catch a show near you!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Austin, Texas — Nocturnity Events and the Vampire Court of Austin, in conjunction with Lady A’s Vampire Social Club, Sinister Visions, and the Nightshade Vampire Boutique, have formally announced the preliminary lineup for the inaugural Austin Vampire Ball. The Austin Vampire Ball, which will take place October 17th through October 20th, 2013, is the first of its kind in the Bat Capital of Central Texas and promises a decadent weekend of live music, wine tastings, a traditional masquerade ball, a costume contest, as well as many other additional events to keep their patrons delightfully occupied throughout their stay.
This year’s theme, the Bad Moon Masquerade, will consist of two main nights of music at the legendary alternative nightclub Elysium (705 Red River Rd. Austin, TX, 78701) in downtown Austin. Friday October 18th, will be the opening “Bad Moon Rising” event featuring music by DJ’s Ravnos and Elecius, Hearts Fail, and “horror burlesque” by the Blood Sirens. Earlier in the afternoon on Friday patrons may also partake of a special wine tasting at Uncorked with music by Solomon Schneider of Dear Lioness. The following evening, Saturday, October 19th, will be the traditional masquerade event, the “Bad Moon Masquerade”, and will feature music by Dead Tree Duo, Diminished 7, DJs Ravnos and Elecius, a costume contest hosted by Lady A, as well as another headlining act yet to be announced.
Global Fear Enterprises with Matt Valentine and Michael Faust (both past contestants on the SyFy Channel’s “Face Off”) will be Official Sponsors of the 2013 Austin Vampire Ball. They will be contributing special prizes to the Costume Contest, as well as actors in special effects makeup which attendees of the Ball will be able to take their photos with! In addition the Austin Vampire Ball will be teaming up with the legendary haunted house experience House of Torment to bring additional actors and atmosphere to the Bad Moon Masquerade this year.
Both nights will also include a special VIV area (Very Important Vampire), which will have bottle service, a private bar, catered food, and more. The VIV Ticket includes a special VIV registration swag bag, tickets to the Museum of the Weird and the Haunted ATX Hearse Tour, access to the VIV section at both the “Bad Moon Rising” and “Bad Moon Masquerade” nights, entrance into the afternoon wine tasting on Friday, and an autographed photo of the Vampire Court of Austin.
