I was also fortunate enough to photograph the down.x
Gallery's here: http://pa.photoshelter.com/c/viscereview
And one note to all of you out there...while I hope you enjoy the photographs, and I'm sure some will, and others won't, being a bit less ravenous in your posts to reviews and photo galleries may behoove all of us. No one's perfect, and attempting to attend, not to mention actually cover and write up ever single act (or close enough) of a 3 days festival is an enviable task. Even in year's when I wasn't "covering" the festivities over the 4 "down's" I've been too, I could barely make 75 % of the shows, as the available distractions and incredible atmosphere in the camp grounds are too hard to miss. (Oh yeah, and once in a while I caught a few minutes sleep).
Of course everyone has their right to critique posts, especially when they are casting opinions and making some mistakes, but let's get real here for a minute. Some of you are absolutely out of line. This guy (I had the pleasure of meeting in the pit btw) worked hard to capture the weekend in his eyes, NOT define it mind you, but just tell you his thoughts. And nothing's worse then a chat board hero that finds a big set of balls in their annonimity and tees off on some little bullshit details. Are you all the same people being all nice to each other, dancing and smiling endlessly at the down?
How about a little note on the side to the author to make some friendly corrections? How about casting your opinion, or even disagreeing strongly but not foaming at the mouth because someone called it the Charlie Brown song as opposed to it's real title. Guess what pal, 99% of the crowd called it the Charlie Brown song when it was played, they loved it, Rob killed it...and no one stopped to listen to the only geek that new the real title and wanted to make sure everyone knew how smart he was...seriously.
So anyway, I've now set myself up to get ripped to shreds, which is cool....the photos were just how I saw the shows...so do as you will, but please, try to be a little more like you are when you're there, when your happy, and cut some people some slack...
It's fucking moe.down for satan's sake...relax.
Good job Rob...fuck 'em all.
