Photos: Against Me! at Webster Hall 6.7.11

Webster Hall, NYC, 6.7.11 – Can punk rock really have a smile on?  Heck, Tom Gabel says so.  The lead singer of Florida based Against Me! had a smile on his face for almost the entire set at Webster Hall.  Headlining to a packed house, it’s obvious Tom and his band mates do one thing at their shows…have fun.  And the feeling becomes infectious.  New Jersey based Screaming Females opened in support, and definitely warmed up the crowd.

Photographers, depending on the band, will normally have 3 songs to get the shots they need from inside the photo pit.  The crowd surfers shortened that for us.  After just one song security escorted us out, for our own safety.  With our backs to the crowd and a camera in our face, its hard to dodge the crowd surfers.  So here is my full set of photos from shooting one song.  Did I pull it off?  Only you can tell me.
