I had the opportunity to shoot a great show this week. Incubus came to Pittsburgh to play at Stage AE, the hottest music venue in town. Along with shooting the usual three songs from the pit, I also shot the ‘meet and greet’ held by 105.9 the X for both Incubus and the opening act, Young the Giant. Both acts had the crowd roaring for more after each and every song.
The first half of the gallery shows some of my favorite shots of Incubus. This was the first show I have shot where the photographers were led into the pit for the 4th, 5th and 6th songs. While it keeps you from having a few extra minutes to work on some crowd shots prior to the show – we’re there for the artist, not the crowd. By the third song, the skies had darkened a little more and it made for better looking lighting. As always, Incubus rocked the joint….
In the second half of the gallery is Young the Giant. These five guys from Irvine, CA tore up the stage. Fresh off of a great showing at the VMA’s on Sunday the 28th, they kept the momentum going with an extremely energetic performance. I would definitely like to see this band again.
Enjoy the photos….
