They say good things come to those who wait, and that was certainly true for me in 2013. I had to wait until the last two weeks of the year to see The Hives play a club show but holy fuck was it worth it. Easily the best show I saw and the best show I shot in 2013. Total perfection. Howlin’ Pelle and company are easily the most photogenic band on the planet today. I hostly can’t think of a single band I would rather shoot.

SHOOTING NOTES: Start exercising for this show a week or two beforehand. HPA is very hard to keep up with. Put your cameras on their fastest frames per second setting and have at it. I will say I wore my Sweden soccer jersey to this show and Pelle posed for me twice. Reppin’ for the home country is advisable if you can do it.
