You guys might not know this, but there was a significant period of my life when I was a pretty huge metal fan. Make that Metal. I think it deserves the uppercase M.
Anyway, given my wild, Metal teenage years, I was pretty excited to shoot the Testament/Megadeth/Slayer show tonight in St. Paul. What a dudefest! Overall I was highly entertained, especially by the people watching. And not just in the crowd! For instance, several members of Slayer wore their own band t-shirts on stage. That’s either a supreme measure of confidence, or they are in dire need of laundry.
I will post a full take on all three bands tomorrow, so be sure to check back in the afternoon. Earlier tonight I was sorting through all of the images to find one to post here (this is the guitarist for Testament, btw) and Jamie was looking over my shoulder. “Dude, these guys look … angry,” he said. Heh. Yeah, you could say that.
UPDATE: Here is the link to the full set of photos from the evening. Including the charmer who hit on me.
