The night prior to the Heavy MTL 2013, I was robbed of all my photography equipment. I quickly contacted the police, and went to the hospital to get myself checked out seeing as I was beaten up. After several gruelling hours, at the hospital and a couple of e-mails, it seemed to me that I would not be covering the Heavy MTL 2013. I went home and slept what little I had, and woke up, adrenaline a-pumpin’ and went all engines forward about my day to at least try and get some things set straight. By 5pm, I had a new phone, and was fortunate enough that one of my friends had lent me his camera. By 7:30pm, I was on site for the heavy MTL. After explaining to everyone what had happened the night before, catching up with friends, taking in every ounce of advice I could gather about what I can do, I was ready to rock. I had heard the tail-end of A Day To Remember, and I must say that for the first time in the many times I have seen them, the set was quite forgettable — No pun intended. I listened to Danzig as well, and found it unimpressive. Even the main act of the evening, Avenged Sevenfold, left me wishing for more. I still shot a couple of images and went on about my night. Slightly disappointed, I walked home with a friend and discussed the differences between this weekend and the one prior, during which the indie festival Osheaga took the city full force. I decided that the next day, I would be more of a passive observer of my surroundings rather than shooting the show so much.

The second day, I came a little wary of what was to come, started on what turned into a memorable day! I quickly realized that there were some very interesting things happening and some very interesting people there. I learned some things from watching the guys and gals who go to Heavy MTL, and I decided to create a list of 25 things I’ve learned at Heavy MTL 2013.
