For an upcoming story on music venues in Lynchburg, I was tapped to photograph the Sevendust concert a couple weeks ago. I literally did not know any of their music, or the music of the two opening bands, Avatar and Lacuna Coil, but I figured live music is a good assignment no matter who it is. With hit singles such as “Enemy,” “Bitch,” “Denial,” and “Unraveling” you get the idea what I was in for. I elbowed my way through the crowd for a few shots, careful to protect my gear from moshers, crowdsurfers and raised beers. Then I got a few from the edge of the stage and finally up on the VIP balcony. My ears were ringing the next day but it was a fun gig, definitely not my typical Saturday night in the Burg.
