But hes half-serious. Because hes on Instagram, the photo-sharing social-media service that has among other things helped turn every concertgoer into a concert photographer, including Zaghal. This is what happens when someone who cant see a thing decides to shoot concert pics, hes written on his profile page . Captions only indicate what I think Im shooting. Looking for things to do? Select one or more criteria to search Kid-friendly Get ideas Last time Zaghal was here at the Rocketship a group house in 16th Street Heights where underground rock bands make urgent noise on a cold basement floor he thought he was shooting local punk quartet Priests. Instead, Zaghal went home with some blurry snaps of the pipes and paneling. I thought there was some kind of stage here, he says. But my friends are pretty honest. Theyll tell me, Oh, you got a bunch of pictures of the ceiling. When his subjects dont elude the frame entirely, theyre often truncated, decapitated or abstracted into blurry smears of pixels. The least successful images become the most successful. Which is beautiful. And hilarious. Its a totally funny idea, Zaghal, 31, says.

The event will be held Oct. 20 from 4:306:00 p.m. on the lawn behind the Orange Beach Senior Center & Library, located at 26251 Canal Road. This will be the Pops fifth year to hold a concert in Orange Beach. For this event, both the Senior Center and Library will be open, making for easy access to those who may use wheelchairs or walkers. Plenty of restroom facilities will be available. The Senior Center & Library are located on Wolf Bay and offer a waterfront view with beautiful sunsets this time of year. For the past four years the concert has been held at Waterfront Park, which is only a few hundred feet from this years venue. The location has been changed due to construction at the Coastal Arts Center. These improvements will allow the grounds to better accommodate events like this in the future. Parking will still be available at Waterfront Park for the Pops Concert. Everyone is encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, picnics and beverages. The Checkered Tablecloth Award will be presented to the group judged to have the most interesting picnic setup and there will be a kids parade through the crowd following the intermission.

The 34-year-old skateboarder turned TV daredevil posted video of himself marrying longtime girlfriend Nicole Boyd on stage at the Random Hero Festival – and shared the moment with fans by posting the video on YouTube.

Carnegie Hall concert goes on, after strike canceled performance

Therefore, its extra-special to see a (quasi)local band do good. Indeed, vocalist Chance Garnette called this gig a hometown show. The people turned out for them too: the Newport Music Hall was about half-full when Skeletonwitch hit the stage at the somewhat early time of 8 p.m. The band is too heavy to be labeled simply as thrash and theres nowhere near enough orchestration in their sound to even think of calling them black metal. If they were forced to be defined by a label, it would be death metal; however, drummer Dustin Boltjes, bassist Evan Linger, and guitarists Nate Garnette and Scott Hedrick each add a surprising amount of swing into the mix. Make no mistake: Skeletonwitch is just as brutal as any other band on the scene and theres no fear of them becoming a Grateful Dead-styled jam band, but they dont play fast and heavy just for the sake of playing fast and heavy. Theyre not confined by the draconian boundaries of traditional death metal. It was hard to tell if all the thought that goes into Skeletonwitchs music was appreciated by the crowd however. Mosh pits in sizes usually reserved for headliners erupted all over the floor when the band tore into gems such as Repulsive Salvation and Cleaver of Souls. It was like watching the hordes of zombies in ‘World War Z’ destroy everything in their path. The band probably already had a lot of fans in attendance to see their semi-homecoming (there were plenty of Skeletonwitch t-shirts and sweatshirts on display in the crowd), but they no doubt gained many, many more last night. By the time Ghost hit the stage, the venue was about three-fourths full. Not bad for a band with only two albums and no radio airplay, not to mention they were just here a little over four and a half months ago at Rock On The Range 2013 (read my review of the concert here ). This band, however, is much more suited for the dark claustrophobic interior of the Newport Music Hall than the bright sunny outdoors.

A strike by stagehands forced the cancellation, but the union temporarily suspended its strike on Thursday, allowing the concert hall to open its doors for now. A union leader told Reuters he was optimistic the two sides could reach a permanent deal by Friday. The dispute hangs on whether the stagehands – mostly prop-makers, carpenters and electricians – should have a role in a new educational wing that the Carnegie Hall Corp plans to open above the hall next year. The corporation wants to hire cheaper labor at the education wing. Negotiations with the union took an unprecedented turn on Wednesday when Local 1 of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees decided to go on strike for the first time in the history of Carnegie Hall. However, when James Claffey, president of Local 1, emerged from negotiations on Thursday afternoon, he announced the union had agreed to pull down the picket line for the day, citing progress in the talks. “This is a goodwill gesture towards Carnegie Hall,” said Claffey, whose local has negotiated some of the most lucrative pay in the industry. He later said further progress had been made, and that even though picketing would continue, he hoped to reach a deal by Friday. Carnegie Hall’s five full-time stagehands make an average of $400,000 per year including benefits, The New York Times reported, citing the organization’s tax returns. Claffey said there were many more stagehands represented by the union who work only sporadically. “This dispute is not about those employees,” Claffey said. “This is about everyone else.
