Hank 3 is the grandson of the legendary Hank Williams who was a Country Music super stars super star. The name has been held in high esteem for decades and the family name has kept in music for generations now so it would be awesome to see for the very first time this much acclaimed performer. Tonight’s show was being presented by Metal Wreckage and was totally free and I found that to be a better way to spend my Saint Patrick’s Day than just dealing with the binge drinkers all around the city. Click the logo below to be taken to the full concert article and a whole lot of photos, then come back to the blog posting to see some of the side images we captured for your viewing pleasure.
The marquee was great as it announced how this was being sponsored by Metal Wreckage but they forget one important factor and that was how the show was totally free. That my fiends, was pretty frigging cool.
After doing some photos of the Country Music set, I secured a seat up in the bleachers and used the ever trusty Panasonic Lumix to capture a tune. I figured there were a lot of other people like myself who had never seen him perform before and if I could help bring some bodies into the audience for the next time, then that was a great thing. I shot the song “Dick In Dixie” and I apologize for the figures moving in front of me and some of the sound. It’s just meant as a taste to spark action at the end of the day.
There was a lot of merchandise on display for sale this evening and everything seemed to be moving rather well.
A different view of the Hank 3 shirts.
Assorted Hank 3 merchandise. Posters, beer cozy’s, lighters and key chains.
Of course there was music on sale as well which you know made most sense.
Here’s a bunch of patches….
The charming young lady was keeping the crowd down by the merchandise with a cold drink in their hands. I was glad that she obliged me with a photo.
Let’s not forget some of the fans that had been going crazy for Hank 3 tonight. Whenever possible I like to present some of their faces to you.
Since I didn’t want to take away from any of his fan interaction time I just asked Hank for a quick photo behind the barrier and he was talking while I shot so it looks a little “off”, sorry Hank 3, I will strive for perfection the next time around.
I was surprised to find myself a Pot ‘O Gold behind the photo pit gate but as luck would have it, the shiny contents had already vanished and in their place was some Hank 3 merchandise. The owner of this said it was actually a purse. Very clever.
That’s all we got for the blog angle of the show. Hope you don’t forget to examine the full on concert report and photo gallery from it. Lots to enjoy in there.
