The Warped Tour rolled through St. Louis yesterday and to kick off our coverage, how about some shots of the final act of the evening, The Devil Wears Prada? Even with the festival winding down and the sun setting, the Dayton metalcore group brought out the crowd surfers and moshers in full force.
The Good: I got the heads up that TDWP was a must-shoot band and that was definitely true with the insane amount of energy these guys bring.
The Bad: With the sun setting. large gaps on stage without light (especially up front) and the band constantly moving, TDWP was probably the hardest set to shoot.
The Irrelevant: Pit security was braced for a full riot before the set began, giving photographers advance notice that pit shooting might not happen if things got too crazy. While still wild, things thankfully never got too bad and we got our three song shoot in without any incidents.
