Posted By on Tue, Feb 19, 2008 at 9:06 AM

Singer-songwriter Jason Isbell imported some southern love to the Beachland Ballroom last weekend. His former-fellow Truckers weren't there, but Scene photog Walter Novak was there, powered by 14 Dortmunders and a lens the size of Hyundai. Check out the resulting photographs and other slideshows at -- Joe P. Tone

Slideshow: Marilyn Manson at House of Blues

Posted By on Mon, Feb 4, 2008 at 1:50 PM

Marilyn Manson fans mug for the camera at Friday's show at House of Blues Cleveland.
If you believe our critic, Marilyn Manson's most recent record, Eat Me, Drink Me, has pushed the shock rocker into full parody mode. But either way, he sold out the House of Blues on Friday, and drew a collection of creatively attired fans that made for one hell of a photo-op. Thankfully, a little white makeup and devil horns couldn't scare off Action Rock Photographer Walter Novak, who captured the scene in this week's slide show. Enjoy. -- Joe P. Tone

Slideshow: Band of Horses in Cleveland

Posted By on Tue, Jan 29, 2008 at 9:07 AM

Walter Novak captured Band of Horses in action at the Beachland Friday.
Friday's Band of Horses show at the Beachland was sold out. But thankfully the Beachland staff mistook Scene music editor Michael Gallucci and photographer Walter Novak as Guys With Important Stuff To Do, and let them both partake in the evening's festivities. Gallucci gave his take on the show yesterday. And today, we present to you a slide show of the concert from Novak. Enjoy. And next time around, check our weekly concert announcements to make sure you snag those tickets early. -- Joe P. Tone

Action Rock Novak conquers the Projekt Revolution Tour

Posted By on Wed, Aug 22, 2007 at 5:41 PM

Rest assured that Walter Novak, our Action Rock Photographer, sweat the sweat of 1,000 child laborers, or at least one Martina Hingis, to capture these photos of Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, and that 22-year-old woman you've been seeing, who, although she claimed to have dinner plans with her mother, seems to be puking herself in Picture 7. Might be time to have that chat. -- Joe P. Tone
