Downpour went to Germany earlier this year to film Crowd Deterrent’s week long tour. After a lot of editing I finally have the finished project ready to roll. It’s a bit long clocking in at fifty some minutes, but I think it sums the trip up pretty well. I met a lot of great people over there and couldn’t have had a better time.
So this year has been extremely busy. One reason, a little bit of traveling.
I headed to Germany with Crowd Deterrent for a little over a week. While filming the documentary we also filmed a Punk Rock House Party at a flat in Germany.
The concert might not look like it’s a house but I assure you we were definitely in someone’s house. They were throwing a party for all the Crowd Deterrent dudes. The show was really good, and the after party was… strange. Hallways packed with people hanging out, strange dance parties in bedrooms with glow sticks, and lots of Kabobs. Anyway, you can check out the night below.
One of the most speechless/disturbing/sad moments in my life was visiting a concentration camp. The specific one we visited was for military prisoners. The photo above were the actual ovens used to cremate people after they had been in the gas chambers. 3 to 4 bodies were placed in each oven. Unreal.
Downpour recently produced the new Crowd Deterrent video for “Worldwide”. If you’re a fan of ultra-violent hardcore you might enjoy.
A while back I made a video for Race Riot 59. It took a while, but here it is.
Downpour is selling the poster for Summer of Hate featuring Shattered Realm, Merauder, Death Before Dishonor, Ringworm, and a ton more bands. It’s $15 bucks and you can grab one here… http://downpourcreative.squarespace.com/store/
I was asked to document Crowd Deterrent on their recent tour to Japan. I threw together a 30 minute documentary you can check out below. A huge thank you to all the Japan dudes for helping us all out for a great week!
Two previews of videos for Crowd Deterrent and Race Riot 59 I have been working on lately at Downpour Creative.
Here are some pictures from Japan taken with my phone over the whole trip. Some of them might have been posted on my Old Saw Tumblr thing but that’s okay.
As far as meals were concerned, this was it for me. The best. I think it costed six dollars and was so filling and tasty. Noodle bowl with dumplings and side salad and Japanese Hi-C (yes, it tastes better than American Hi-C, I don’t care if someone told me it was the same, for some reason it just tasted better).
