Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats performed at The Modell Lyric Opera House in Baltimore, Maryland on November 11, 2019 — and I, Andy Jillson, was there to capture these doomy musical outlaws in action. Yep, in this “Photo Flashback” we’re taking a trip down memory lane with Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats.

Ministry performed at the Giant Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania on November 6, 2019 — and I, Andy Jillson, was there losing my shit and rocking out in the photo pit with one of my all-time favorite artists. Holy shit! Ministry played a classic set of songs from their late 80’s and early 90’s catalog. This was a dream show for me.

Ty Segall performing @ Ottobar (Photo by Andy Jillson)

For this Hazy Eye Music Media “Photo Flashback” post we’ll be taking a trip down memory lane with Ty Segall & White Fence. As a rule, I never miss an opportunity to catch a performance by the prolific garage rocker and rock & roll slave, Ty Segall. On this go around he paid a visit to Ottobar in Baltimore, MD on February 25, 2019 with fellow indie rocker and American singer-songwriter Tim Presley (aka White Fence). The venue wreaked of beer and stale cigarette smoke for this gig (I mean more so than usual). The band were drinking beer, the crew were drinking, and a large majority of the crowd were joining along.

For the first Hazy Eye Music Media “Photo Flashback” we’ll be taking a trip down memory lane with Ministry. Whoa. Being a fan of Ministry, and most Al Jourgensen side projects since my teens, this is a show I will not soon forget. I was granted a photo pass and permission to photograph one of my childhood musical heroes. Hard to forget that. It only took about 3 or 4 years of requesting photo passes. Hahahahaha! I can still recall the feeling of pure bliss and redemption I experienced during my time in the photo pit.

Le Butcherettes performing @ MECU Pavilion (Photo by Andy Jillson)

Le Butcherettes are currently out on a massive summer tour with Devil Makes Three, Flogging Molly, and Social Distortion. The band is extensively touring North American in support of their 4th studio album, bi/MENTAL. Le Butcherettes is a fearless musical force lead by founding member and singer/guitarist/keyboardist Teri Gender Bender. Of course, I was there in the photo pit once again rocking out and taking pictures. As always, Le Butcherettes kicked ass and proved that they are still progressing and are not to be overlooked.
