Thrice at Metro

So I've been spoiled, I know that.  But last night's show at metro was one of the more difficult shows I've ever shot.  Thrice is my favorite band of all time (which is a big statement) and anytime I get to see them live is awesome.  But security was less than helpful, not allowing us into the barricade until the house lights went out.  That doesn't leave any time for setup or just settling in.  Then we were booted after 2 songs.  I don't know that I've ever been limited to 2 songs and I know I never have at Metro.  Not sure if it was a house rule or band rule.  But the lighting in a club isn't even worth shooting until the 3rd song unless the band has their own light guy out there.  So it was a bit of a struggle to say the least.  The set was solid and following it Dustin went to the Wrigley parking lot to do 4 acoustic songs to benefit Invisible Children (if you don't know what it is, click the link and find out).  They passed a jar for donations and it was a great little set. Without further ado, the images...
