Preview: Dropkick Murphys @ The Pageant
Quick preview of the Dropkick Murphy’s incendiary frontman, Al Barr, in the band’s extremely sold out show at the Pageant.
This show with Dropkick Murphys was packed to the gills, and the fans were there to rock. With Mardi Gras weekend coinciding with this show, a lot of the patrons were sporting party beads from the day’s festivities.
While normally I have a love-hate relationship with the 5-foot stage of The Pageant, for this show, somehow it seemed perfect for Al Barr’s keen, stage-front performance.
For this show, the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 was great for the majority of the work, though I had to break out the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 for an ultra-wide shot of Barr and the crowd (which should also give you an idea of the photo pit and height of the stage).
Stay tuned for the full set of images guys, they’re coming up along with the images from Against Me! I’m shooting Flogging Molly on Tuesday night, so it’s going to be a week packed with the Celtic Punk.
