A few recent photo I took of Ben at the Metro Times Blowout during his performance with The Dirtbombs

The Dirtbomb’s performance was insane fun-it could even be described as epic. The Hamtramck crowd was especially unrestrained which caused The Dirtbombs to kick it up a notch. It was the perfect way to close out the Blowout!
