Philadelphia, PA 9.2.12 – Another highlight coming out of this years inaugural Made In America Music Festival is a Swedish garage rock band called The Hives. I missed shooting them the last time they came through NYC…as I heard they are a must see/shoot. Aside from their stage antics, the band is known for performing in various types of matching black & white attire.

The Hives are fronted by Howlin’ Pete Almqivst’s vocal prowess alongside whirling guitarist Nicholaus Arson. The 2 of them have such a dominant and engaging stage presence…climbing stage monitors, jumping off drum kits, and playing to/in the crowd.
