Unearth at the Colonial

Unearth at the Colonial Theatre last night was great! Let's be clear about something though. Great to me also means vital, visual, exciting to watch and photograph. It's not music I'm likely to put on the CD player and bop around the house with. This is hardcore rock, heavy, screaming, metal, blindingly loud and an ugliness that to me is stunning to photograph. Capturing the energy of shows like this is really hard, scary, physically taxing and technically so far on the edge that you can't be positive you've got anything until it's long over. For this pic I'm standing in the photo pit, narrow enough for this guitarist to span the divide and stand right on top of the crowd, which is only too happy to have him there.
