Photos: Animal Collective @ The Pageant | 10.25.13

Making up for their cancelled show back in March, Animal Collective brought their psychedelia-infused electronic indie… vibes to The Pageant in St. Louis on October 25th, 2013.

It would be naive to think that Animal Collective wouldn’t bring an impressively moody light show with them. With the requite projector screen accompanied by some arching stage props and even some large teeth set along the front of the stage, it was a definite invitation to take whatever the Baltimore foursome were giving.

This proved to be a tough shoot, though. Members were either obscured by equipment and there existed only small windows in which the light and the musician lined up in a favorable fashion. Using slower zooms (old Minolta f4 glass) didn’t seem to matter. Accurate focus and high ISO performance were the deciders. Still, it wasn’t hard to walk away with some desirable photos of a highly celebrated, if not sometimes obtuse, indie band.

Shot for Eleven Magazine.

Get This Fool Some Books
When I’m not getting ready for the next show I like to sit down with a good book. Help support and my reading habit through my Amazon wishlist. You can always order a print from my large archive of awesome rock shots if you need something rad on your wall.
