I haven’t posted a Music Monday in awhile, but I don’t get out to shoot as many shows as I used to either. This is actually from last fall, and I was busy wrapping up wedding season, so I didn’t ever get it posted here. Anyway. I got to go take pictures of Green Day in Columbus the day before their new album came out, for Green Day Authority. I’m kind of a fan, so I was pretty stoked. I got to cover three songs, which is usually how these things go, and they started with Bang Bang, Revolution Radio, and Know Your Enemy. I’m glad they chose that last one, because a) they tend to vamp a lot in it, which means I got more time to shoot and b) they almost always pull up some kid for a stage dive.
We had a chat about my excellent Pinhead Gunpowder shirt, but then we both had to go back to work. It actually took me around 10 frames to realize he was talking to me.
This would be the kid they pulled up to stage dive.
If you want to see more of these (seriously, I have even more of these), check out the Flickr gallery. If you’re looking for some more recent shots, check out my friend Clair’s. Or see more music photos from yours truly.
Have a question? Ask the photographer!
