The other bands on their tour, I’d never seen live. Actually, I hadn’t even really heard any of their music before now, but they both have a really interesting sound.
Tesseract was on first:
Then Animals as Leaders. Honestly, I got so distracted watching these guys that I kind of forgot to shoot for a minute.
Update: You can order prints from this show.
This is probably the most fun I’ve had at a show in a long time, so many thanks again to the Signals Midwest guys for hooking this up. I spent most of my time in high school and college in venues just like this, except everyone was in terrible grindcore bands then. Since we were from the boonies, we only made it up to Pittsburgh for big shows (well, if Laga qualifies as big), and this was my first time hanging out at 222 Ormsby.
These guys are no stranger to the area, though, and Max told me how Ormsby was the first place they ever played out of state. They’ve been talking about doing this split with Shady Ave for three years now, and finally made it happen. It seemed like about three years worth of pent up celebrating.
Thrice played at The Rex in Pittsburgh on October 21 with La Dispute, O’Brother, and Moving Mountains. Really hot, really loud, and really great set list.
Dustin’s also been doing acoustic sets after the show to benefit Invisible Children, and I was able to get some photos and video from that.
As wedding business has been picking up, I’m making an effort to keep the Caroline Moore Photography blog strictly weddings. So I’ve started this blog as my own little space on the web, to post whatever I want.
What can you look forward to here? I’ve started shooting for City Paper and the Herald Standard, and those will go here. Personal work of all sorts, music and sports photos. Design stuff. Ramblings.
There’s going to be a lot of changes here over the next few months, and I’ll be sort of retroactively posting some things as I move photos over. If you have any questions, send them over to email@example.com.
