Dave, where the heck have you been?

Woahhh! It’s been quite some time since I did my last blog post, but I have to admit, things have been a little hectic!

As some of you know, myself and a few other creatives set up Yorkshire Coast Gigs, which launched in July 2013. This new online music guide is designed to help both local folk and visitors to the Yorkshire Coast area help find what music is on and where. Not only that, but we have some fantastic contributors that review gigs, as well as interview both local and visiting artists.

Yorkshire Coast Gigs has now become a Community Interest Company which is designed to help promote the local musicians, venues and support the cultural, artistic and economic life of the area. There are a number of new projects coming up, so keep your eyes open!

Yorkshire Coast Gigs continues to zap up most of my spare time, and when I’m not sat doing website admin work I’m out and about shooting shows for our reviews. The photo archive is now up to date with most of the gigs I’ve covered, so head on over and check them out! I’ll also be backdating some blog posts over the next few weeks, to include some of my favourite gigs I’ve covered.

Coastival 2013 – A Different View

A week or so ago Scarborough was taken over with art installations, projections and music with Coastival 2013. Entitled ‘A Different View’ there was 60 exciting events – with 54 absolutely free! I took most of the day wondering around with my camera and snapping whatever I could find. Focused on the theme of light there were plenty of things that caught my eye – Holotronica had to be my favourite!
