Today I was going through one of my hard drives, and I came across some pretty cool photos, of a pretty cool town. Back in 2009, I traveled to Austin for the Texas Rockabilly Revival. There were some fantastic bands, and some even more fantastic folks.

Also appearing were Atlanta rockabilly veterans “The Blacktop Rockets” and country/honky tonk sensation “Julea and her Dear Johns”.

Drive Invasion 2013

September 3, 2013 — Leave a comment

If it’s Labor Day weekend, you know it’s time for that annual parking lot party, DRIVE INVASION. It was either the 15th or 14th year for the event, depending on who you ask, at Atlanta’s Starlight Drive-In. It’s all about bands, booze, and b-movies.

Starting off the show was Ghost Riders Car Club… and a final appearance by the nearly-famous Ernie Dale.

I missed the fabulous and freaky “Man… or Astro-Man” Oh well. And I couldn’t stay for the all night movies and mayhem. Dang it.

The annual Memorial Day Weekend wingding went off like it always does at the Star Community Bar … with a twang, and a slug of Boones’ Farm Strawberry Hill. Here’s just a taste of the fun…

My Dad gave me his double-lens Yashica-A medium format camera some years ago. I loaded it up with Kodak Ektar color print film, and started snapping!
