This one landed late on my desk last Friday.
And to be honest, I didn’t and don’t really know too much about Papa Roach. Sure I had heard of them, but I really had no desire to shoot them to be honest.
What convinced me to do the shoot is when I found out that local lads The Ugly Kings would be opening the show.
Once that little nugget of info was forthcoming, I decided to shoot the gig.
This was the first of two sold out shows for Papa Roach, so whilst my knowledge of them was limited, I can’t say the same about the mass of fans they drew.
It was great seeing the Kings again. I think it was a year to the day of when I last saw them and shot them and again, they were wonderful tonight.
The Roach was next. Extremely high energy and horrible, misty lights greeted me.
