In the first installment of a new series of revealing inteviews, B-Side HNL speaks with some of the unsung artists of Honolulu’s underground rock scene: the indie photographers, who, without promise of pay or due acknowledgement, often risk injury to self and damage to their prized cameras in pursuit of the perfect shot. Local photogs Kalie Capadona and Ryan Dancemachine recount their stage-side experiences with B-Side HNL (for photos and a brief essay, click here). Also, Downbeat Lounge provides the stage for a potent triple bill featuring homegrown rockers Page, Sunslaav and Mano Kane.

I am a lifelong Honoluluan whose true calling is to tell the stories of others, whether through photos, film, video, audio or the written word. Here is a collection of my works – some previously published in periodicals like Billboard, the Honolulu Advertiser, Honolulu Star-Bulletin and Honolulu Weekly, though most of what you read or view here has never been seen before.
