It was a bit of a last minute decision when I finally reached out to Vince with StepKid Events. Precisely 3:52pm to be exact with doors opening at 9:00! But, as usual I wanted to be sure that if I came out to take photos I wouldn't be stepping on anyone's toes. Often you'll find there is a Tour Photographer travelling with the band so there isn't always a need for another. Vince was kind enough to run it by Hawthorne Heights' management and I got the okay! Three songs, no flash. I can deal with that! My first legitimate taste of the Concert Photography profession.
I went early to check out the other bands playing and was able to snap a few of the openers to get warmed up.
