Coheed and Cambria
I was super stoked to attend the Coheed and Cambria show at the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore where they were supporting Slipknot. Because my photo pass was for Coheed only I, unfortunately, only got to see the 1st 3 songs of their set - through my camera. I then had to take my cameras out to the car so I could hang out for the rest of the show. Those first 3 songs were incredible, as always. With all of the talent in that band, how could the performance be anything short of amazing?! Slipknot also put on a great show. I don't think I had ever seen them live before, and I'm definitely looking forward to shooting them in the future. What a crazy (in a good way) stage presence!
I've been to a LOT of shows and have to say that the people who work at the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore were seriously the most pleasant bunch of which I've come into contact. Sure... it was a big arena and the security rules were a bit ridiculous, but none of the people enforcing those rules had the "holier-than-thou" attitude I'm used to experiencing at shows. How refreshing!
