Rock out with Daniel Coston in June

If you follow the Scene & Heard social column I do for the Charlotte Observer and the Swirl social column I do for SouthPark magazine, then you're familiar with photographer Daniel Coston. I always tell him I could not do my job without him.

Daniel is a freelance photographer, so he has many other clients. He's also one of the most interesting people you'll meet because he's always involved in fascinating projects.

On June 12, Daniel and his co-author Jake Berger will give a presentation on Charlotte’s 1960s rock and roll history during a celebration of the release of the second edition of their book "There Was a Time: Rock & Roll in the 1960s in Charlotte, North Carolina."

Daniel will lead a talk about the music, people, and the impact of the Charlotte music scene throughout the state. The evening will conclude with a short set by the Mannish Boys, led by Jake. It's from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Charlotte Museum of History, 3500 Shamrock Drive. Admission is free, but registration is required:

On June 21, there's a big party in honor of the book at Neighborhood Theatre. It features music from the Mannish Boys, Young Ages, Good Bad & The Ugly (GBU) and The Dirtybeats. Tickets are $15:
