It’s been a while since I’ve shot a punk rock show and Alkaline Trio‘s return through the city was a great one to end that streak. Pop’s was packed in that evening for the Illinois legends, bringing along Bayside and Off With Their Heads for this leg of the tour. With an abundance of low and red lights for most of the performances, the shoot was equally as chaotic as the bands themselves.
With the release of the stellar Wolf’s Law, The Joy Formidable included Pop’s on their recent tour, bringing along Guards and Kitten for the tour. The action of the Welsh trio was barely contained on the stage and thanks to the fine folks over at Speakers in Code, I had a spot up front to bring back some pictures of the evening.
