We sat down with Kevin DeJong, a Raleigh-based guitarist for Home Away from Paradise and concert photographer to talk about preventing camera breakage due to crowd surfers, theories on why the hardcore and pop-punk scenes seem to thrive in Greensboro and Chapel Hill, and how everyone lives for breakdowns regardless of the genre of music they enjoy.
Check out Home Away from Paradise on Bandcamp. They’re currently looking for a vocalist, so hit them up if you’re interested. Additionally, check out some of Kevin’s photos from Sophomore Slump Fest in Greensboro.
