PHOTOGRAPHED FOR VUE WEEKLY
Once again, Halloweekend has come and gone in Edmonton, and of all things that go bump in the night around this time of year, The Howler is surely the one who makes the most noise. Going on their 25th year at the Shaw Conference Centre, local rock radio station 100.3 The Bear has been throwing this epic Halloween party that just keeps getting better and better with each passing year.
It was my first year shooting this event, and I couldn't have been more excited! Halloween mixed with live tunes and a camera in my hands, what could be better?!
This year's entertainment consisted of gritty rock and in-your-face punk tunes courtesy of The Offspring and One Bad Son. Tickets had completely sold out for this event, and it certainly showed. Both bands totally had the audience eating out of the palms of their hands as they hammered through their sets, seeming thrilled to be a part of the pre-Halloween fun.
A plethora of elaborate costumes filled the Shaw Conference Centre, making it entertaining to not only watch the bands, but to see everyone done up from heads to toes in well thought out Halloween garb. Needless to say, I had a blast shooting this event, and I can't wait to see what The Bear has in store for next year's Halloween Howler!
