My Top 5 in Music 2008: #4 The Usual – Gigs and Photography

I’ve rendered myself in inactive gig photographer mode for the last half of 2008, with very few exceptions. However, this based on this lot of 15 photos (arranged by date [earliest to latest]), I didn’t think I did badly.

I would like to dedicate this post to  Anabel Bosch, who is now in critical condition due to an aneurysm she experienced January 1 of this year. More info here.

I can’t say we have had any conversations of significance, but we do have common friends, we’ve been introduced, and have exchanged comments over the social networks, as recently as 3 days before the unfortunate incident . I do hope she will overcome this.

    I vote for your pic of Paramita. You can see her facial expression and the contrast in the photo is perfect. She sounds even louder in that photo! Rawk!

    Hey Benny, thanks! I was just glad Ria asked everyone to stand up and get close. She seems to prefer this one, though, as I saw it for some time as her Facebook avatar:

    Paramita

    great pics, rain! then again, you prolly knew that already. my vote goes to chubibo, but the shot you took of my cousin’s crushness (ria of paramita) comes close second.

  11. rain says:

    The Chubibo photo came from a really interesting gig in Eastwood. It was for the Sampaguita tribute album, and Sampaguita didnt even show up.

    And the Paramita photo was from their album launch, and there were two prominent guys there taking pictures. I found out later that his surname was also Contreras.
