So, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I haven’t posted anything on here in a while. I haven’t even written a bio yet! Other than taking pictures, I have been slacking.
And speaking of pictures…
St Pat’s in 5 points was Saturday, as you probably know. Weather or not you remember it is another story. If you don’t remember it you really missed out!
I didn’t get there until right when Marry a Thief took the stage, so I missed some of the acts. As usual, Marry a Thief put on a good show. Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull joined Erich Skelton in singing the first song of the set. After that, I rushed down to the stage that Manchester Orchestra was playing at and I did the best I could with pulling out my camera and moseying my way towards the front saying I’m taking pictures for SceneSC. You know.. trying to sound important enough for people to move. A press pass to take pictures would have been nice, David! Anyways, Manchester of course put on a good show. A big complaint from many was that they did not play one old song. Not one. I’m not saying I don’t love the new stuff, because I surely do, but it would have been nice. It might have even kept one of the middle aged women in front of me from texting someone this; “you going to be there long? i’m not feeling this band.” Upon being a creeper and reading that I shook my head internally at her. Her loss! My card was full by the end of their set due to a photoshoot with Nick Bays right before and not bringing an extra card! Next was Mute Math. All I can say is that I have never been in such awe at a live performance than this. I like Mute Math, but I didn’t listen to them that often. As I type this guess what I’m listening to? Yeah, Mute Math. It was ridiculous. I honestly thought someone was going to break a bone up there. Front man, Paul Meany, rocked out the opening son on the keytar and the last song (minus the encore) on some sort of synth-guiar-looking-thing. I don’t know but whatever it was he jumped off of the stage and let the audience play it. I could go on and on, but you get the point. Especially if you were there. Afterwards, everyone i was with were saying the same thing.. “I have no idea what just happened.”
Here are some of the photos i snapped:
