This year for my sons birthday I got them tickets to the Rockstar Uproar festival. They both love many of the bands that were playing which included Bullet for my Valentine, Seether and Three days Grace.  They were sad that the headliner could not attend but we were promised a makeup date in December. We had pretty awesome seats fourth row to the left side of the stage. All the bands rocked the house and I brought along my trusty Canon Powershot A640 to shoot the action. Its funny how much you appreciate a good DSLR when you have to use a point and shoot for any length of time. I feel like I can really get what I need out of my 7d, and while I know I can get great shots out of the A640 (it had full manual mode) I still miss the menu structure and the comfort of my good old DSLR. Here are a few of the best shots taken that day I hope you enjoy.
