The Pandemics @ Characters, NYC – 7.19.13
July 20, 2013 | Concert Photography
The Pandemics played after Roddy Radiation played a solo set, which included a few songs with Lynval Golding. Then The Pandemics played a fun set that got the room dancing! Later on in the set, Roddy joined the band to play a few more Specials songs like “Gangsters” and “Little Bitch.”
A lot more people decided to check out the Pandemics or where close to the band so I kind of stayed around the perimeter. Actually, for a small show like this the dancing got a bit rowdy towards the end. I thought everybody was going to go crashing into the band. I was standing on a chair in the back to get some nice perspective of the crowd too. I really wanted to skank for these guys but both my wife and I were so beat from the day, so we decided to just sit back and enjoy the set. Later on, I went up and sat on my knees to take some pictures. I got a fun photo of Checkerboard Phil dancing. Hopefully my flash wasn’t driving people crazy too much. I hate to use it but Characters is so dimly lit in there that you really have to use a flash.
Definitely check out the Pandemics if you haven’t yet! Also, if you don’t know about Electric Avenue at Characters, be sure to like their page so you can find out when the next show is! Great bands play there and all the money goes towards the bands too!
