Plain White T’s at the 20th Century Theatre

This was my first time shooting at the 20th Century Theatre, and it went very well. There is no barrier between the crowd and the stage—no photog. pit, but the audience members were very polite. They were also very loyal. I met one couple who drove down to Cincinnati from Canton, OH, which is nearly a four hour drive!

All three bands sounded great, but the real treat was just how great Decker performed. This young band not only sounded great, but their songs had a surprising level of sophistication that I really appreciated. I was proud to hear that they were from Cincinnati, and I look forward to seeing them play more around the city.
