Heavy Metal Pizza Night Round One!!!

🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕🤘🍕

Last night was pretty awesome! Didn't get a lot of metal'ers, but it was still great regardless. I brought in my VCR and a bunch of heavy metal VHS tapes and played music videos all night in the background. some of my homies came in and hung out for a long time early on before a gig. Two old ladies came in right at ten, and at first i turned them down, but they were just so sweet! I told them they can stay if they don't mind the heavy metal music. they were totally down! and they loved the photos!! 'Diamonds and Rust' By Judas Priest came on and they said it sounded familiar, so I put on the original by Joan Baez (which i never even knew existed until recently when the singer of Agent Orange made a comment on a facebook post of mine 😝) They recognized that right away!

 "Say cheese!" No, I'm not even joking, they literally said "Cheese!" 😐 i didn't even ask them to

I'm putting together a raffle for a framed photo on the wall, and they both entered their names into the drawing. Lin likes Tom Araya of Slayer, and Lane likes Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe. I think I already found my winners 😍

 How cute!!!!! 

How cute!!!!! 

A late drunkin' stumbler walked in about 1130. Said he was having a crap night. I asked him if he minded the music, and he said hell no! and told me to blast it. Then paid me $20 not to touch the volume knob again 😂😂 made him a big ass pizza for his long stumble home. Hope that made his night better, and his walk more tolerable! Cheers mate!

Ended up hanging out all night and got some chores done. Stayed open until midnight. Might just keep that going. Anyone who wants to hang can stay as long as they want on HMPN. As long as you don't have a problem with loud metal music!! Stop by on the way home from the bar and come hang out! or hang out here INSTEAD of the bar...even better 😉

We'll be there again next saturday...5pm!!! I'll have trivia and prizes. dance offs. David Lee Roth jump offs. ACDC duck walk-offs. And head bang-offs. Tell your friends!! tell your mom!!!! bring the kids!! IT'S ON!!!!

Not In This Lifetime Pt 1 (Throwback) #GNFNR

On this day in Rock n Roll history, exactly one year ago, I witnessed history in the making. I got to see the first two nights of the GUNS N ROSES reunion in Las Vegas. It was insane. I never ever thought I would ever get to witness Slash and Axl on stage together, playing music, and shooting each other smiles on stage. Mind=Blown. I cried three times that first night. Just beacause I couldn't believe what I was witnessing. They played almost all of the songs I wanted to hear. And the songs that they didn't play the first night, they played the second night. It was complete perfection in every way. The shows were sold out the instant they went on sale, and because they were the only shows that were announced at the time, ticket prices were insane. There was no way I was able to get a ticket. So, naturally, I went anyway, with barely enough cash to get there and back, and a little bit extra to spend on a crappy nose bleed ticket, I was determined to get in. I had to try at least. I would have regretted every second if I didn't. I ended up getting in both nights. With decent seats, too, I might add. It was pretty amazing, actually. I was extremely shocked, and proud of myself for pulling it off though. After the show, I only posted a handful of pictures. Because I was still in Vegas, and had to come back to reality immediately after the second show. So I just never got around to posting the rest. But here are the photos that I selected from both shows. It was very hard to narrow them down, so I am just going to post all of them. Enjoy!

PS Who is going to see them in Denver in August?? Because I don't have to spend money travelling to another state to see them, I put all my money into the tickets. I got two floor tickets, and intend to be right up front, in front of my Idol, SLASH. Hope to see you there!!!



The End (Sabbath, Bloody Sabbath)

Tonight is THE END. The very last BLACK SABBATH concert EVER. It is a sad day for music, but also a time to reflect on this amazing band's impact on us all.

I feel so incredibly lucky that I got to see them this time last year. It was my first and only time ever seeing them, but it was one of the best concerts I've ever been to in my life. And I got some pretty amazing shots for only using my compact camera.

I'm not sure what time it will air, but the band has announced they will air the final song and final bow live on their facebook. So keep an eye out for that.

What is your favorite Sabbath song? How have they impacted your life??

AFI @Gothic Theater, Denver Colorado 1.28.2017

It was such an amazing experience to be able to shoot one of my childhood favorites. AFI was nothing short of amazing, and I am still in complete disbelief from this night. After the show, I ended up getting to meet the band and give them each one of my business cards and tell them how their band inspired my brand. Such an incredible moment!! Read my review here on the For the Love of Punk website, and let me know what you think!!!!
