01.20.2012 Toy Devil’s Album Release (Toy Devils)

Toy Devil’s had their album release party at Vinyl featuring Brain, Sneaky Hand, Winter Ransom and of course Toy Devils as the headliner. I had a blast seeing all my friends in one spot and seeing fellow photographer Kamil in the green room. I started off at Darwin’s to shoot Swamp Funk, then headed into town in time to catch Winter Ransom as they were getting on stage. After Winter Ransom, Toy Devils TORE up the stage and put on a helluva show!

Nophest 08.27.2011

Nophest was a 3 day music festival in East Atlanta village. I made it out Saturday to go see Toy Devils and Sneaky Hand. I caught Signs of Iris from Greenville and another 2-piece set named S&M in between sets.

My day started out at Eastside Lounge with Toy Devils. I’ve always been a fan of Eastside Lounge. Before I was shooting concerts, I was shooting artists. Two were some friends of mine who did most of the murals at ESL. You can check out some more of their work at ipoopletters.com.

Toy Devils put on a loud, energetic show as always. I loved it! Apparently the furniture store neighbors weren’t used to having musical acts on during the daytime and pitched a big hissy fit. The owner ended up blocking off Eastside Lounge with his truck and put signs up complaining about the “noise”.

After Aaron, the owner of ESL calmed him down, the music continued. Signs of Iris was pretty good, although I was a little disappointed to hear 2 cover songs in their short set.

S&M was an interesting 2-piece featuring a guy on bass and loop pedals, and an operatic singer also on keyboard. It sounded very new-age/world music-ish.

We finished up our drinks and headed out in search of food. We ended up throwing darts at Gravity Pub. Running short on time, I decided to just grab a burger while we were there. Holy shit! They brought out this huge, greasy 1/2lb patty topped with giant onion rings and bacon. I took a quick picture and proceeded to tackle this beast. Not too bad, but it was so heavy and greasy I couldn’t finish it. I wasn’t disappointed, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

We finally headed towards Sneaky Hand. I forgot to check the schedule so we automatically headed to 529, which wasn’t open yet. I could hear Sneaky Hand echoing through the streets of East Atlanta, they had to be near someplace! We pull up the internets and find our way to Joe’s Coffee where the band is playing in the back courtyard. I love me some Sneaky Hand, but it was a little odd to see them play at a coffee shop.

06.18.2011 Toy Devils + FYN Concert

After Sushi we went to the Toy Devils + FYN concert at Sweetwater Bar & Grill. They put on a GREAT show as usual! I was a little disappointed in the turnout, but I guess that’s what happens in Gwinnett..
