Avatar Live Photos from The Aragon Ballroom 2019

Avatar is currently on tour with Babymetal for their last leg of the Avatar Country tour cycle. The tour made a stop at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, Illinois where I was able to capture the band one last time. As the opening band, Avatar had an abbreviated, 8 song set. What stood out to me was even with an

Godsmack - 7-23-2019 - New York - By Elliot Levin

Godsmack Live Photos From Beacon Theatre In New York, NY

Boston’s Godsmack crashed into Manhattan on July 23 and laid down a two hour set of hard rock. Fans packed the venerable Upper West Side’s Beacon Theatre for a rare, all-seated Godsmack show which prevented mosh pits but did nothing to stop the usual beer chugging, headbanging and fistpumping that are hallmarks of Sully Erna and friends’ live show. The

Wednesday 13 Live Photos from The Apollo Theatre AC 2019

Until Wednesday 13 opened for Static-X, I was unfamiliar with the band. Not knowing what to expect musically or visually, I was pleasantly surprised when both aspects of the show were well done. I think it’s well known by now that I have a thing for bands with a unique stage presence (Avatar, GWAR, Behemoth, Fleshgod Apocalypse, I’m looking at

Static-X Live Photos from The Apollo A.C. 2019

I have been a fan of Static-X since I first saw them open for Fear Factory back in 1999. Wayne Static came out on stage and my friend goes, “Look, it’s the Slim Jim guy!” I laughed. Then Static-X started playing, and I replaced that laughter with fanatic screaming as my ears greatly enjoyed the aural assault that they were

The Black Dahlia Murder: Live Photos from House of Blues In Chicago, IL!

Like I said before, I’m a pretty big fan of The Black Dahlia Murder and I rarely miss one of their shows. I know the House of Blues Chicago has good stage lighting, so I definitely didn’t want to miss this! Playing their latest album, “Nightbringers“, in its entirety, The Black Dahlia Murder also threw in some fan favorites such

Slayer: Live Photos from Tinley Park, IL!

Slayer!!! Where do I even start? One of the “Big Four” of thrash metal. Arguably the heaviest of the “Big Four”. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve even seen Slayer. 10? 15? 20? I can’t remember. All I remember is a great show with an absolutely insane crowd every time. When I heard that Slayer were going to

Lamb of God: Live Photos from Tinley Park, IL!

The last band before Slayer was Lamb of God. The guys from Richmond, VA are one of the best acts in metal today. I’ve been a fan since “New American Gospel” came out and saw them on tour with GWAR way back then (when John played with 3 strings on his bass). If memory serves, they were the first band
