Saturday, October 4th, we photographed Sick of it All, H2O, Wisdom in Chains, and White Collar Crime LLC at Irving Plaza in New York City. Fresh off the release of their eleventh studio album, The Last Act of Defiance, Sick of it All commanded the room with a performance of high energy and the packed crowd was thrown into a frenzy from beginning to end. Together almost thirty years as a band, they show no signs of slowing down and consistently demonstrate that their live show is as good now as it ever was. They will continue to tour throughout October and November playing shows in both the U.S. and Canada. Do yourself a favor and catch an upcoming performance!

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.
