GWAR @ House Of Blues

GWAR House Of Blues Chicago

GWAR brought another set of sci-fi horror metal to the House Of Blues the other night, and having photographed GWAR at House of Blues before, at first I was worried about the stage lighting treatment — excessive backlighting, billowing fog, rapid-fire strobes, and deep colored gels.  But after the first song, I realized my best bet was to embrace it as part of the “GWAR experience” and shoot accordingly.  Being that their show is pretty much a horror B-movie set to metal music, you can’t expect much more.  CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE »

The Casualties @ House Of Blues

It must be both exciting and daunting to open for a band such as GWAR, but The Casualties, a street punk band going 20 years strong, were pretty capable of rising to the challenge.  They weren’t timid in bringing the raucous to the crowd at House Of Blues.

I wanted to post a quick shot from last night’s GWAR performance.  Full set coming soon within the week, but I just had to post a teaser photo, in anticipation for the Halloween weekend.

Hope everyone has fun!

GWAR At House Of Blues

I was super excited to catch an opportunity to shoot GWAR at House Of Blues. Known more for their stage theatrics than for their actual music, I knew they’d make for great photo opportunities. I made sure to bring a poncho and wrapped my camera in a plastic bag, knowing that I had front row seats for spraying and splattering of fake blood. I kept laughing the whole set. These guys know how to put on a ridiculous show.
