Every year in July, there’s a night market that takes place in Markham called Night It Up! and it gives local bands a pretty cool big stage to play on, and the lighting’s always spectacular and fun—you don’t really get that set up at an indoor venue for independent bands. 2016 was RHD’s fourth time performing…… Continue reading Red Handed Denial at Night It Up! 2016

Recently I’ve been thinking about how I used to be better at certain things, like sharing and writing about life online. I guess it stopped being fun when…… Continue reading Taipei in August
In April, Red Handed Denial released their “Wanderer EP”, and you can play the whole thing below while I show you the photos from the release show. Do it. Ready? They had the show at an upstairs venue I’d never been before, the stage was small, ceiling was low, practically no lighting, so I used a lot of flash and edited…… Continue reading Red Handed Denial “Wanderer EP” Release Show
In January 2016, Red Handed Denial booked the biggest show they ever played to date—they opened for Trivium in Kitchener at Dallas Night Club. It was a cold and snowy day.

I messed up. This post should have gone out before my last post with photos from Red Handed Denial’s Dirty Diana MV shoot, but here’s a recap of the second half of my 2015 when I started working with the band, aka how I tagged along on their summer shows and took photos. My story with Red Handed Denial started back…… Continue reading 2015 with Red Handed Denial
