Passion Pit Helps 1057 The Point Celebrate 20 Years!

Going into tonight I really didn’t know what to expect.  All I knew is that I was not going to pass up an opportunity to photograph at the Peabody Opera House, which was even more fantastic because I had a brand new Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 lens to try out.  Leading up to tonight it was an overall feeling of excitement because Passion Pit and their opener, Matt & Kim, are presently some of the most prominent names in indie rock.  In fact it seems they’ve owned the pages of Spin Magazine for the last six months.

As I requested my photo credentials for this past evening it never even crossed my mind that these two bands may require separate approval processes, that being said I unfortunately got an email at about 7:30pm letting me know the only act I could photograph was Passion Pit.  This didn’t effect me much because I was just happy I still got to photograph one of the bands that night.

Passion Pit was really energetic and served as a great band to help 1057 The Point celebrate their 20th Anniversary.  The Point was the soundtrack of my youth, all throughout High School and into college.  I had a great time trying to capture the energy in the room that Passion Pit was flawlessly delivering to the audience, so enjoy the pics!  This was the first big show I photographed with my new Sigma lens and I was am happy with the outcome that I stayed up to complete editing and posting these photos, eventhough I have to be at my day job in 6 hours.  Ooh well, you got to ride the wave when you feel like you’re on top.
