Photos: Thrice at Best Buy Theater

Best Buy Theater, NYC, 5.26.2012 – Thrice is making their rounds on their farewell tour and stopped in to a sold out Best Buy Theater in New York City.  Check out my pics from the night by clicking through the break.

Shooting at Best Buy is generally a good experience.  The pit is large, the stage is a great height and the lighting in generally good, depending on the band.  Good for me might be different for others, but the first 3 songs were generally good for Thrice.  We were allowed to shoot the first 4 tonight but the fourth song was a complete waste of time.  Washed out, over saturated reds.  I basically put my camera at my side.

Thrice has good energy and is a fun band to shoot.  Being a 4 piece, with a limited stage set-up, the band got a little lost on the Best Buy stage.  There was a ton of room for them to work with but they were generally far away from each other.
