[#TBT] Sleeping At Last/Landmarks [FKA Color Radio] @ Judson University 2009

Here’s a fun concert I went to back in 2009.

This involves Sleeping At Last back when they were a three piece. The opening band was Color Radio (now known as Landmarks). It was great seeing them play at JU.

Poetry Alive Highlights 2017

Here’s a nice change of pace from some concerts videos that I’ve done over the past few months.

This is a sample of the Poetry Alive 2017 event at the Gail Borden Library where the poetry group performed some of their works. This people are just so talented when it comes to being wordsmiths and doing different styles and genres of spoken word.

I would like to thank Michelle Kaczor for filming this. All I did was perform some of my poems and edit the footage.

Yes, that is a spoken word version of a certain Ospreyshire track in the video that I read.

[#TBT] Renae live @ Mad Maggie’s 2009

Here’s this week’s collection of #TBT photos.

This is from late 2009 when some old friends of mine by the name of Renae came to Elgin to play a show at the former Mad Maggie’s. They are a post-punk/hardcore band from Hillsboro, IL (near Springfield). I’ve seen them several times back in their heyday, but they broke up years ago.

However, their memory lives on. Feel free to download their music. http://renae.bandcamp.com.

#TBT: Spartans vs Windy City United Soccer Highlights 5/21/16

Thought I just did concert and music videos, right?

Wrong! I’ve done sports footage before. This is a highlight video from a soccer game in Elgin between the Spartans and Windy City United playing at Judson University’s field.
