Daniel L-M

I’m a painter, I like painting, and often I like other things too. I hail from Vermont where the water is clear and the air is crisp- we’re kind of a sugar maple cult to be honest.

I do some web maintenance alongside other administrative tasks. Sometimes I write, sometimes you see me tabling doors at a show. You’re most likely to find me at a hardcore show or something weird and funky.


Dan McMahon

Originally from New Bedford, MA. Currently living in East Cambridge.

I help produce our largest annual event, Hassle Fest. In addition to venue and artist booking, I also coordinate and manage sponsorship opportunities for this festival.

Omari Spears

My name is Omari. I go to a lot of shows, take a lot of pictures, and eat a lot of plants. Those are actually the only three things I do.

I write up “Went There” posts with photo galleries for the site. You can check also out my work on Instagram at @o.shoots


Jonathan Vahid

I’m a music lover from Chelmsford MA, and I try my best to photograph the intimacy of live art. My favorite breed of dog are poodles and no one can change my mind!

My role at Boston Hassle is photography in a general sense, but I will occasionally help around wherever I can.
