How do you spell Rock N Roll? Annually in Atlanta we spell it S-K-I-D F-N R-O-W!

Skid Row kicks off their summer touring season and the Wild Bills summer rock series, with an impressive display of force including an updated setlist and some select tracks from the bands forthcoming studio album.

Shooting Notes:

While very liberal (eg whole show) access was granted to cover the set, with all gifts come additional challenges. The packed venue did not enforce the pit so patience for shots and gracious accommodation of the crowd for letting me in their space was required. The tactic employed was slow unobtrusive movement from house left to house right throughout the set pausing between steps and following the song arrangements waiting for key moments. The bands performance is always such high energy and crowd interactive that this approach worked quite well. Camera duties fell to the Nikon D700 twins and the 24-70 and 70-200 2.8′s. Exposures fell +/- one stop of 1/200 F2.8 ISO5000.
