Atlanta Boogie: I don’t know if you know, but Mike Bourne is AWESOME! Between his skills, that sweet Silvertone he’s rockin, and Paul Diffin’s upright slap bass style, Atlanta Boogie has an incredibly unique sound! We loved having these guys out at Darwin’s! Mike Bourne will be back on Friday with Stoney Brooks, come check ‘em out!

11.23.2011 Light Painting

It’s been a crazy week, to see what I’ve been up to check out www.darwinsburgers.com! Last night I met up with Kamil again for some more light painting. We scouted this location out last week but didn’t actually do anything with it. We were out here for 4 hours in the cold, but we figured out some new techniques and got some awesome shots!

All of these photos are SOOC (Straight Out Of the Camera). No Photoshop trickery or editing has been done. We used a long exposure and various sources of colored lights and techniques to achieve the effects we wanted. Keep an eye out, we’ll be doing this regularly!

11.06.2011 Smoked Sausages + Guitar Thieves Must Hang Benefit

So, what does Chef Akin cook on his days off? Deliciousness! During renovations at Darwin’s, we would often go to Williamson Brothers to go get their smoked sausages. Akin has been obsessing over it since, “I can do better than that!” The key is in the type of sausage you get. Well, we found it. Garlic pork sausages! They were DELICIOUS, and Akin is considering serving them at Darwin’s eventually. There’s still a bit more recipe tweaking to come, so keep your fingers crossed!

10.05.2011 Chomp & Stomp + The Bush Pilots

Chomp & Stomp Chili Cookoff: Mmmm…Chili cookoff… Along with a few thousand other Atlantians, I went to the Chomp & Stomp Chili Cookoff in Cabbagetown. Chili, Music, People, Artists, and lots and lots of waiting in lines.

I had a blast, and it was a fine day for standing around in a line in a park listening to Live Bluegrass. All the chili was great, what little of it I had…I waited in so many lines most of the chili was gone by the time I even got a quarter of the way through…and I was there early! I was jealous of seeing some folks walking around with a stack of 20+ cups, while I had less than 10. These were generally the drunken folks who push their way to the front..but it was all in good chili!

I met some awesome folks, saw some old friends, and made some new ones! All-in-all a good day. Afterwards, I had to go home and rest up for The Bush Pilots show!

10.04.2011 Stoney Brooks Band + Zydefunk

Stoney Brooks Band: My evening started off at Darwin’s with Stoney Brooks. I’d seen Stoney play at our Thursday Jam several times, and have always loved his Harmonica playing! But wow, he’s got a great voice! Stoney and his band were this year’s winners of the Atlanta Blues Competition! Using these awesome old acoustic instruments, these guys have an incredibly unique sound!

11.03.2011 – This Week!

I’ve had an incredibly busy week since my last post, filled with many many great photos. Between last week’s Blues Jam, Men in Blues, and our Halloween Grand Opening I’ve posted over 2 hundred images to Darwin’s Burgers and Blues blog. I’ll pick up where I left off from there:

Monday: Jim Ransone’s acoustic set. Mondays are pretty slow everywhere, I decided to save my gas and hang out with Jim.

Tuesday: I had a blast hanging out with Little G and Michael Guy Tuesday! Buddy Guy’s nephew came by Darwin’s and hung out with us, what a treat!
