Goldfinger @ Best Buy Theater, NYC – 11.12.13
November 15, 2013 | Concert Photography
Goldfinger is one of my favorite bands to photograph! The band is very lively, and I get so many cool jump shots from Charlie and John.
Just like last year, former Goldfinger roadie/actor Joe Manganiello came out to introduce the band. Then Goldfinger took the stage and I mainly stuck around Charlie for a song or two. I love photographing him because he jumps, poses and just looks like he’s going to take someone’s head off with his guitar. I like when he just goes around in a circle on stage. Him doing that doesn’t really translate well in a picture, so it’s something you have to see live. Mike of MxPx filled in for bass so that was kind of cool since I haven’t photographed him in probably 6 or 7 years.
After the 3rd song, I hung out on one of the steps area on the left of the stage and took some shots sporadically. Of course, I had to get a shot of Darren getting a Twinkie eaten out of his ass. So gross but so funny! Later on, John’s wife and kid made an appearance so got some photos of that as well. I thought the lighting was pretty good for this set and help made the photos better I think. It’s tough with punk bands if there’s no lighting, since I couldn’t use flash.
