Jack’s Mannequin @ Kanrocksas 2011

Jack's Mannequin @ Kanrocksas 2011

When mapping out my Kanrocksas schedule, I opted for Jack’s Mannequin at the Ad Astra Stage over Artic Monkeys at the Main Stage, even though I had just seen them two days earlier at the Warped Tour. Sometimes being a fan overrides the chance to shoot something new.

The Good: Another chance to hear “My Racing Thoughts” from the upcoming album. The girls in the front row getting all giddy.

The Bad: During my Warped coverage, I talked about how his two-microphone setup make it really hard to get a clear shooting angle. Adding the challenge of a significantly higher stage didn’t really help.

The Irrelevant: With the Kanrocksas and Warped performances fairly similar (during my time there), this was probably the one set all weekend where I wonder if I should’ve chosen the other band option. One consoling thought is that I heard from other photographers that the Artic Monkeys set wasn’t a must-shoot either.
