The Suicidal Tendencies are still out there making music and entertaining their fans. The band started as a punk band back in the early 80′s and has continued to release albums and tour ever since. The band has gone through substantial lineup changes with lead singer Mike Muir as the only original member. But the crowd at the House of Blues on Sunday night didn’t seem to care about that. They came to see and hear some hardcore thrash and that’s what they got.
As a photographic experience, it was (like most shows) mixed. The energy was a great, the action was non stop and the lighting was low. It seems that the House of Blues needs more lights, or at least needs to turn them up a little. There always seems to be more lights on the back of the stage than on the actual performers, creating a backlit scenario. This makes it difficult to get separation between the back and the performers.
The photo pit was empty, with just three photographers shooting the show and I used the Nikon D4 with the 24-70mm f/2.8 lens and the Nikon D70o with the 16mm f/2.8 fisheye. The 70-200mm f/2.8 stayed in the bag.
