    Wow, wow, wow. One of the best double-bills in a long, long time. I can’t imagine having to follow either band.

    This will be one for the ages.

    yeah, it’s too bad they’re not coming through Virginia! I’d love to catch this combo. Been wanting to catch the Hold Steady again since Langerado 07. Nice photo, eh?

    I love this shot its not some close up of a sweaty rock star, glorying fame like a golden calf, it shows the whole picture, the complete atmosphere that is a rock concert, fan and performer in synergy, keep it up birds eye

    Thanks, Alex. Shots like these are some of my favorites. I always try to get a few when I’m at a show.
