ENTER SHIKARI // THE MINDSWEEP TOUR

So going off of my most recent post, I’ve grown up in this scene, following and admiring people in this genre for years. A few days ago I got to photograph Enter Shikari on their tour with Hands Like Houses and The White Noise and before I say anything else, let me tell you that they all put on a phenomenal show. Crazy high energy and just so truly excited to be there.

The show took place at Altar Bar in Pittsburgh, which is a repurposed church that holds a few hundred people.


It’s a cool venue, even though their lighting situation sucks, specifically for photoags. Because the venue is so small, I pretty much shoot in the tiny foot-and-a-half-wide space in front of the barricade until people start crowd surfing and security kicks me out. At that point I just stand off stage, watching and photographing from behind the amps. I’ve never thought twice about this until the other night when I was watching Enter Shikari. I was standing alongside members of both The White Noise and Hands Like Houses, two bands I admire greatly, watching Enter Shikari completely in awe. It was a moment that made me take a step back and see how far I’ve come over the past year: I was standing next to a group of people who I’ve always wanted to work alongside, who were simultaneously marveling over the fact that they were on tour with a band they’ve always wanted to work with. We were all feeling the same thing and it was so inspiring.

I can’t wait to be a part of more shows and tours like this.
