Social Distortion – Part 1 (Sound Check)

It’s been a few weeks since my last post. Busy is not the word to describe how my life has been. Between birthday parties, working, training a new employee, trying to make time to shoot photos, edit photos and who knows what else… I haven’t had much time to upload photos or write anything here.

So May 11th had finally arrived, and that meant Social Distortion was in town for the first outdoor show at Pittsburgh’s Stage AE. This was my first real concert with a photo pass. Yes I have been shooting a bunch of bands for the last year or so, but this was the first national act that I got to shoot from inside the pit.






I was also asked to come down to the venue early for the “Meet and Greet” which was hosted by Abby from The X at 105.9 FM. There I photographed the band members with the lucky listeners who won the “Meet and Greet” passes. What I didn’t know was that the “Meet and Greet” also included a chance to listen to the band during their sound-check, and for me a chance to photograph them as well.



Be sure to check out the sound-check photos here in this gallery.

And stay tuned for the second post, which will have the concert shots that I’m about to start sorting through.


Thanks for looking,
