Dave Brockie (Oderus Urungus) and Mike Derks (Balsac the Jaws of Death) of GWAR on Flickr.
This show. This show was chock full of talented bands, but it was also laced with grief and heartache.
I remember going up to the front to shoot, armed with ziploc bags, washcloths, and a faux leather hoodie to keep me safe from the bloodbaths that were about to ensue.
I remember seeing the faces of Dave Brockie, through the makeup and all the theatrics, and feeling like I too had lost something precious but battled on through the night.
The fans came out, heavy hearts or not. They were there to support and pay respects to Cory Smoot.
