After performances by Apocalyptica and Bullet For My Valentine, American rockers Puddle of Mudd took the main stage at Pointfest to deliver a tight, high energy set. Led by the charismatic Wes Scantlin, the four-piece from Kansas City laid into fan-favorites like “She Hates Me,” “Psycho,” and “Blurry.”
This shoot was pretty straight forward and was the one show on the main stage that had the benefit of a spotlight. Singer Wes Scantlin benefited from this white light the most, with considerably less light on the other players, while a multi-colored treatment came in from behind.
Scantlin proved to be the most interesting subject on stage and hoisted up the mic stand toward the audience on two separate occasions.
Before the band hit the stage, I manage to catch Scantlin for a few quick snaps. Very honorably, the singer volunteered to go it solo and save his bandmates from the shoot, taking one for the team.
