Harddrive Tour - Part One: Emphatic

WHEW! So here we go! I had a lot of stuff hit me all at once and I've been editing myself CRAZY trying to catch up, haha!

A few weeks ago... maybe a few more than a few weeks ago... The Harddrive tour came through my hometown. Once again, my friend Joe Joyce knew a guy who knew a guy who knew ANOTHER guy... okay so it wasn't that complicated... but he had connections that enabled us to score some photo passes for the Allentown show at the Crock Rock (and then a later show in West Chester at The Note). That was a TOTALLY awesome experience for me because 1. Photographing bands... SCORE! and 2. Seeing an awesome show by a handful of great bands... SCORE AGAIN!

UNFORTUNATELY, we missed the first band of the night at Crock Rock due to some mis-communication that landed JOE on the list... but left little ol' me out in the street. Joe made a few phone calls, and things were cleared up so I was good to go, but by the time we finally got in the first band was in the middle of their last song. So that was a bummer, but life goes on.

The bands I got to see (and photograph) included Emphatic, Seven Day Sonnet, Madam Adam, Rev Theory, and Saliva. Like I said... awesome. :D

The first group of images I present to you, as the title suggests, are of Emphatic. Man, let me tell you these guys were entertaining to watch! They're a great band and they put on a great stage show. They were tons of fun to photograph... a bit of a challenge with all that movement, but fun none the less!

Without further ado... Here are some images from those two shows:
