I’ve always been a fan of music that really comprehends on real life and draws from something deeper than just bling and swag. For me music has always brought a bigger meanings and stronger contents than most and that’s why I tend to cherish real music with strong devotion. And with these words it’s pretty easy to jump onto this weeks entry.
Ladies and gent’s! May I present thee, Paleface & Räjähtävä Nyrkki explding in Verkatehdas, Hämeenlinna!
Paleface was to play a free show at Verkatehdas in his old home town Hämeenlinna on Mayday celebration event. And as some might refer his music as proletarian hip hop, as the music is taking a stance in today’s matters, intelligent and speaks with the voice of many! And there really ain’t no other artist more suitable to perform at mayday celebration? Yeah, I couldn’t think of anyone else either!
We go back a long way with Daddy Pales. First time we met during, I think it was in 1995 after he got back from the states where he was as an exchange student. I remember when he got back and brought the first Korn album with him and we all went nuts over it! Still have that copied cassette somewhere!
The guys then formed Hoax and we were very fortunate at times to be there to see them play and rehearse! Still have that cassette in my collection! Classic! The rest after that is history! Good ol’ days!
This was the first time I got to shoot at Verkatehdas. The venue holds pretty good basis to shoot as the lighting equipment is new and good. But as the show was to be held with the seats on, I really couldn’t move around that much and I think it could have been way better without the seats overall, since now people were just sitting still…. You get the point? Like, we have music with strong rhythms, something to make people move, dance around and so on…Lot’s kick ass vibes and grrrrroooves… and people sitting on their assess… Duh!!!!
Gladly we had we had our kids enjoying themselves and dancing around in the front! Heartfelt kiddos 🙂 The spontaneity and sincerity never seizes to amaze me! Viva la children!
That’s all for now! See ya again next week!
