Live Music Photo Tuesdays – Mr. Lif, Grieves and more…

Mr. Lif brought his political and socially conscious hip hop act to the High Noon Saloon last week and put on a brilliant show. He was casually hanging out at the merchandise table  and mingling with the crowd before hand, and then flipped the switch as soon as he hit stage…delivering his rhymes with intensity and passion. The evening’s other performers included Rob DZ and DJ Skooly, DJ Statik, Willie Evans JR., Metro, Budo and Grieves. It was a prodigious lineup and the crowd really got into the show. Nearly everyone on the dance floor was moving to the beats, singing along and generally working up a good sweat.

Hope you enjoy the photos…
