Back to Bands

Another music gig for The Star-Ledger (article)! This one was of the bands Thursday and Underoath at Terminal 5 in Manhattan and was a bit more challenging. The bands were hardcore (or punk, not good with my music genres) and preferred to remain in the dark or backlit most of the time. For the first 3 songs of each band, we (the photographers) were allowed into a space right in front of the stage, and snapped away as crowd surfers were passed to waiting security staff just behind us. It was a somewhat comical scene: screaming wailing band, pack of photographers furiously snapping away, and rabid fans and crowd surfers being passed to security in the span of 10 feet.
