This was my second time shooting these guys. Always great energy coming from these guys.
You can see a few shots from their set at last years Bonarroo here.

So this was my third time shooting at this amazing venue and I gotta say…the lights pretty much sucked every time. I know that 2 of the 3 bands that I shot there always have dark lighting so not the venues fault. Mix in a heavy amount of smoke/fog/backlighting and it just becomes a headache to shoot.

Setlist:
Cholla
Austere
This Ladder Is Ours
The Greatest Light Is the Greatest Shade
Little Blimp
While the Flies
Cradle
Tendons
Silent Treatment
Maw Maw Song
I Don’t Want to See You Like This
The Everchanging Spectrum of a Lie

Encore:
Forest Serenade
Wolf’s Law
Whirring
