Happy birthday, Dave Edwardson!

Dave Edwardson neurosis roskilde festival

Dave Edwardson of Neurosis at 2017 Roskilde Festival

@OfficialNeurot @neurosisoakland @RelapseRecords

Born exactly two months after I was, and possibly at the same hospital (assuming he was born in the east bay), seeing Dave Edwardson walk though the crowd at Copenhell on warm-up day six months ago on his way to the backstage area made me realize it was going to be an awesome day (despite my jet lag).

I would love to see Neurosis do a European tour in July next year.

Circle of Life … or something

Clutch @ 2018 Roskilde Festival

@COPENHELL #copenhell #rf18 @orangefeeling #clutch #roskildefestival @clutchofficial

Clutch is one of the more recent bands that have been added to the 2019 Copenhell lineup. But that’s not where my history with Clutch begins. Earlier this year they played at Roskilde Festival on one of the more enjoyable and memorable evenings of my existence (in part because of the company I was with, Dark Tranquillity being one of my favorite bands, and being blown away by seeing NIN for the first time). But that’s not where the story begins either…

Way back in 2008 we were headed to Copenhagen for me to teach at Copenhagen Business School for the first time. (2019 will be my sixth time in twelve years.) Copenhell didn’t exist yet, and I had never heard of the Roskilde Festival so I didn’t go (which is sad because many great bands played that year including Neil Young, Judas Priest, Radiohead, At The Gates, Slayer, Dengue Fever, and Black Mountain). Anyway, as we were queued up in an airport line in the USA to check our bags to Copenhagen it was obvious that we were in line right behind a band as they had all of their gear, etc. I asked them who they were, and they told me they were Clutch. I had never heard of them before. They were going to play at that same 2008 Roskilde Festival. Seeing them live, for the first time, 10 years later at the very same festival was serendipity or ironic or something.

CELESTE @ 2018 Roskilde Festival

@orangefeeling #RF18

It’s not easy shooting a band who plays in the pitch blackness, with nothing but head lamps for lighting. Today’s photo was nearly an instant delete (as it was just a small red light as a jpg). However, when I pulled up the RAW file and lightened it a bit this pattern over the image appeared. Anyone know the source of this design? Given that it isn’t coming from the light, is it from my camera’s sensor, the lens, or just a ghost?

Throwback Thursday

SUMAC @ Roskilde Festival (Pavilion stage)

@SUMACband @SigeRecords @bbcbubblegutz #rf16 @orangefeeling @sargenthouse @SargentHouseEU

Today’s photo of SUMAC at the 2016 Roskilde Festival is from more than a couple years ago. The guy on the left, Brian Cook, is best known for his work in Russian Circles, a band I was fortunate enough to see for the first time last night in Portland at the Crystal Ballroom (photos coming).

Happy birthday, Aage Konstantin!

Waiting for the band going on at 1:30 a.m.

#rf17 @orangefeeling @Cultofluna_off

Only nine more months of waiting… 😉
