Saturday, September 20th, we photographed Stiff Little Fingers and The So So Glos at Irving Plaza in New York City.

Legendary punk band Stiff Little Fingers formed in Belfast, Ireland in 1977. Over thirty years later they are still creating new music and touring all over the world. Their set at Irving Plaza featured classics like “Wasted Life”, “Nobody’s Hero”, “Barbed Wire Love”, and “Alternative Ulster”, mixed in with new songs from their tenth studio album, No Going Back, such as “My Dark Places" and "When We Were Young”.

Tonight they finished up their summer US tour in Massachusetts. They will play Europe throughout the fall, hitting cities in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France and more.
