I don’t get the chance to shoot many metal shows, so I was very excited to get in the pit for Lamb of God’s gig at the 9:30 Club. The band hails from Richmond, so even though it technically wasn’t a homecoming gig, the place was filled to the rafters with rabid fans.

This was a fun but tough shoot. There were waves upon waves of crowd surfers (including one guy in a chicken suit) so I couldn’t stand in one place for more than a few seconds because the security in the pit was moving all over the place trying to deal with the crowd. The vast array of monitors on the lip of the stage also made it tough to get a proper full length shot. Like I said, not the easiest conditions, but much more fun than the usual indie rock gig.
