Leeds Cockpit – 21st July 2012

Last week I was asked to head west with Scarborough band Stray Scene, as they were asked by the folks at Leeds Cockpit to perform  as a support. I met some great folks, and particularly liked the sounds from The Tender Hooligans who closed the live bands before the Cockpit’s transformation into rock night.

Here are some of the best photos from the night, featuring Belladonic Haze, Stray Scene, Tiny Giants and The Tender Hooligans.

For the full selection of photos take a look at the archive site.

Jan Bee Brown’s ‘Tickle My Fancy’ Exhibition

Shortly before Jan Bee Brown’s ‘Tickly My Fancy’ exhibition came down I managed to get these few frames. Jan is a post-feminist artist who developed this concept to explore the female vulnerability through using sculptural felt and lace.

The installation was held in Electric Angel’s ‘tiny gallery with a big heart’ on Museum Terrace, a couple of doors up from the Rotunda. It ran from the 5th March to the 2nd of July 2012.

The Best of Future of Music Festival 2012

Back in June I had the pleasure of photographing the first Future of Music Festival up on Oliver’s Mount in Scarborough. The aim of the festival was to showcase and celebrate some of the finest original music around the area such as Everyone an Army, La Petite Mort, 3 Foot Ninja and loads of others. The headliners for Saturday night were Hope & Social, and to bring the Festival to a close there was Edwina Hayes.  The festival also had various other bits and bobs too including story telling, face painting, comedy, Reiki, magic…

The weekend was a great for the first year, and I can really see this building up over the years to one of the best music events Scarborough has to offer. With a decent sized stage, great sound and lots of beer the only thing letting it down was the weather. But isn’t that what music festivals are all about?
