On Friday evening I made my way over to Palace Theatre in St. Paul to photograph an old favorite band of mine, Death Cab for Cutie. I adored this band back in high school and early college and I had never seen them live before, so eagerly jumped at the opportunity to shoot the show.
I shot these images for City Pages, but sadly, my photo pass did *not* include a ticket to the show. That is fairly common with concert photography, and means that I was allowed into the venue for the opener, and then was able to shoot the first three songs of the Death Cab set before being ushered out of the venue. A bit disappointing not to see them perform some of my old favorite songs, but it’s always magical to be in the photo pit, so close to an artist you love.
The opener was Charly Bliss, a Brooklyn-based power pop group.
