This past weekend it was Metallica Day at AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. Check out their sweet rendition on the National Anthem:
They were giving out some totally cool Metallica/Giants hats, and Daryl scored one!
And check out our Grand Prize winner of KCAL Workforce Getaway #2, Daniel givens of San Bernardino, who made some killer custom KCAL T-Shirts with his wife just so they could be representing at the game!
Apparently, Daryl was enjoying the beers up there in San Francisco!
And then there’s Lars..kinda throwing out the first pitch:
Ok, we’ll just say it was a big looping curve ball that caught the corner of the plate…
Metallica Night happens at AT & T Park in San Francisco in conjunction with the Dodgers/Giants game tomorrow night. Big congrats to the winner of KCAL Workforce Getaway #2 who’ll be flying up there for the fun.

They’ll also be auctioning off the custom guitars they use to perform the National Anthem…

Saturday night, the band Foreigner performed at The Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside. I was lucky enough to be able to shoot some photos of the show, which was my second time shooting photos of the band. The first time was back in 2011 at the Hollywood Bowl with Journey. That was a great show to photograph, with the Bowl being so iconic, but I was really excited to shoot this weekend in a small theater like The Fox. This show was everything I was hoping for…
