Noise for the Needy 2013 ~ Ballard Style

Well, I can’t believe it had been over a year since I had last shot a music gig…my last outing being last years Noise for the Needy benefit – this years, was just the impetus I needed to go back out – as I have shot it every year since I got my first dSLR in 2008. I felt great, it was challenging, it was a bit back breaking, and it made me itch for it it all a bit, again…

That all said – the reason I go out every year for NFTN, is that it feels good, it’s for a good cause – and great people all get together to make it happen. Simply put, it’s a great thing to be part of. This years like the others supports a local charity – this year it was the Ballard Food Bank, thus all the shows were at Ballard venues – and I volunteered to shoot the weekend shows at the Tractor Tavern. It was going to be dark, I knew, but all considered it was the venue in which I knew I could make it work…

Before I show off this years set, reminisce – 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.

Now, the bands that were covered included Pretty Broken Things, Case Studies, Horse Feathers on Saturday the 22nd, and C-Leb & the Kettle Black, Cracker Factory, Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown Sunday the 22rd. By far the most fun to shoot was Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown closing the show on Sunday…but they were all great fun, offering unique looks, and great music.

My faves from the weekend…
