Music Photography by Joe Papeo

Photos: Incubus at PNC Bank Arts Center 9.04.11

PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel, NJ, 9.04.11 – Touring in support of there first album in 5 years, “If Not Now, When?”, Incubus rolled the bus through shore traffic to make a stop at PNC Bank Arts Center, or how the old timers still call it, The Garden State Arts Center.

This was a strange show for me.  Not from a band perspective as Incubus sounded great and put on a great performance.  Normally photographer’s rules are first 3 songs, no flash.  On this night we were told we can shoot songs 4, 5, and 6.  My first reaction was that they were doing this because something cool was going to happen during those 3 songs.  Sometimes its a cool things with the lights, the crowd, or maybe a special guest.  On this night I got to shoot 2 ballads.  Huh?  I like energy when I shoot and I basically got to shoot Brandon making love to his mic.  I don’t get it.
