Photo Review – The Middle Coast

Who: The Middle Coast When: Friday, May 19, 2017 Where: Dakota Tavern, Toronto ON I was fortunate that I got the chance to check out The Middle Coast this past Friday at the Dakota Tavern in Toronto. It was my first time shooting this band and my first time shooting in the venue – and […]

Photo Review – The Anti-Queens

Who: The Anti-Queens When: April 2, 2017 Where: Cherry Colas, Toronto ON After looking long and hard to find a new drummer, The Anti-Queens finally decided on Dallas Conte.
