Static-X Live Photos from The Rave 2019

Static-X is currently on their second leg of the 20 Years of Wisconsin Death Trip tour. Having so much fun covering the first leg of the tour, I had to take the opportunity to shoot them again. How could I pass up the opportunity to shoot Static-X, playing Wisconsin Death Trip, in Wisconsin at The Rave/Eagles Club?? This time around,

Nile Live Photos from Wildwood BBQ & Saloon 2019

Nile is currently out on tour with Terrorizer. I always try and catch Nile when they come through town. They never disappoint!

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.

Dope Live Photos from The Apollo Theatre AC 2019

Dope is currently touring as support for Static-X. The band put on a good show and were highly energetic with a lot of jumping around on stage. Sadly, the stage lighting was not conducive to producing high definition shots or capturing jump shots without blur.
