BANE - The Final Philly show

This is not my work, but definitely worth posting. The legendary hardcore band Bane played Philly for the last time on May 6 and May 7 of this year. They have been a shining light of positivity and inspiration in the hardcore scene, a band you can pop in to get you through the hardest of times. My bud, photographer Ryan Johnson and I got to see the May 6 show at the First Unitarian Church in Philly. This is the amazing video by the good folks at Hate5six.com. 500 people, no one on their phones, no barriers, PMA, living in the moment, and one couple got engaged.


These are photos taken by Ryan Johnson. Bane has since played their final shows ever in Worcester. -"Never been much good at saying goodbye."
