19 August 2009 – Tonight I was taken back 9 years while shooting The Get Up Kids because I could remember exactly the first time that I ever heard their stuff.

I had been really excited for the last few days for this show and the boys never let me down. They played with as much excitement as if they had started the band yesterday but with as much skill as if they had been playing together everyday for the last 20 years. I feel privileged for getting to see them and even more for being able to stand that close and shoot photos with them. The lighting wasn’t that great the and HUGE bouncer that was in the pit really wasn’t the smartest and he expected us to spend our short time, meant for shooting, chatting with him about what we were doing there. Aaaaaarrrrrrrrggggghhhhh. Haha.

Tonight was a good night and I loved it.
