Altria and Decadents
Urbana, IL, USA


As the song goes... "it’s only rock ’n’ roll, but I like it." A friend of mine wanted me to take some photographs of her band during a show they were having. The gig was at Memphis on Main in downtown Champaign, IL, USA on August 27th, 2011. The mixture of energetic people and low lighting conditions is always a challenge for taking pictures. For those interested, I used a Nikon 35mm f/1.8 for the entire show.

Three bands were in attendance: Stone-Faced, Decadents, and Altria. All of them performed wonderfully and made it a great show overall. Good job to all. I was only asked to take photos of Altria, so the great majority of the photographs in this gallery are of Altria.
