Devotion is the newest project from the front man of the now defunct NWHC band Go it Alone. Mark Palm is one of the best dudes I have met since living here in the NW and his bands are some of the best the NW scene has to offer.
Devotion is a cross between old soundgarden and go it alone. Mark wrote all the music and lyrics himself. It was recorded by him and the drummer. Only super talented musicians can write and play the entire record themselves. Devotions debut LP is available from Rivalry Records. Check out Mark's blog at www.thesearemoderntimes.blogspot.com.
At the Following link u can view the complete set of pictures that I took at the show.
You dont have to have a facebook page to view the pictures!
Their next NW show takes place in January at the Fusion Cafe in downtown Seattle with Ceremony.
If you like old soundgarden and or hardcore music you will definitely dig this band.

Converge was the secret band that played on Oct. 3rd with Undertow and Unbroken at El Corazon in Seattle WA. This band blew me away that night. My friend who has seen them many times said this was their best set ever!
I owned a few albums from this band but wasnt really a fan until this show.

Unbroken is an hardcore punk band from the Northwest. The band has been broken up for awhile now but played a series of reunion shows in 2009. This video is a few songs from their Seattle reunion show with Undertow, Strain and Balance of the World on Oct 3rd 2009 at El Corazon.
This band is definitely one of my favorite NWHC bands of all time! I can relate to their songs in a big way, especially the songs in this video.
"I am sorry...I am not you!"
I just started video taping bands again after a 8 year hiatus. I use to tape bands all the time back in the early 90's in New York City.
Old school English punk rock band The Varukers played their first Seattle show in 7 years on Saturday October 10th 2009. I recorded 15 minutes of their set. The tape I had was only that long due to my camera being a digital hi-8 which cuts down normal hi-8 tapes in half. I photographed the rest of the show.
This is part 1 of a 2 video series.
I just started video taping bands again after a 8 year hiatus. Look for more exciting videos from underground bands from around the world!
Up the punx and death to the New World Order!

Here are a collection of photographs of the last ever Never Looking Back show at the Viaduct in Tacoma Washington. This band has meant more to me than probably any other band that I had the privilege to discover and know. There have been many bands in Connecticut and New York City that came close but nothing like how I feel when I am listening to Never Looking Back. I have some deep pain that their songs help me deal with. In the darkest moments there have been certain songs that have saved me from throwing my life away. I feel lucky to know of two bands in the NWHC scene that have saved my life - Never Looking Back and Vanguard. In honor of Jeremy, Shannon, Josh, Kenny and Cory-here are the last ever pictures of Never Looking Back playing live. I hope maybe in a few years they do a reunion. Fingers crossed. Thanks for everything-kim.
