Dallas, Tx @ House of Blues
Band: August Burns Red

I was there for Schecter (I love my job :D) and this band was on before the one I was there for (The Bled). Unfortunately, I’m not as proud of my The Bled shots, and I’m really proud of this one. This band was full of camera whores (I wish every band was like that, makes it easier to get good shots =P) and I was able to get this while the strobe light were going off.
Since you can’t see the crowd behind me, let me just say what was going on that made me decide to give it the title it has. From what I could see from the corner of my eye, the kids were either moshing, or doing that gay little scene thrash mosh thing, either way, strobe lights + loud screaming music = basically raising hell. My motto is “throw punches or go home”, and if I see someone do that gay little scene mosh, I start throwing punches and I raise hell. So either way, hell was raised (haha). I wish I could have gotten this good of a shot for the bled, or every time I die, but I didn’t, so this will do =] I know it’s not my best work, but I like the mood of it.
