GALLERY: Trap Them, Call of the Void—November 9th & 10th, 2017 @ Saint Vitus, NY

Whether they’re shooting multiple venues in a night, or meticulously crafting live show reviews; our photographers can be very busy at times. Because of this, we’ve collectively decided to break up our photo content into two different kinds. Posts titled PHOTOS will feature an in-depth review of a show, providing a personal insight into all the subtle nuances of a show along with a small selection of images to accompany the photographer’s thoughts. Whereas posts titled GALLERY will convey the energy and events of a show through a visual narrative, featuring collections of images that speak for themselves without the help of an accompanying write-up. Without further adieu, here is our first Gallery post of the final two shows from Trap Them, with Call of the Void, by resident NY photographer, Mark Valentino!

PHOTOS: Caspian, Underoath—April 16th, 2016 @ Electric Factory, Philadelphia, PA

Although it’s common to have 3+ bands on a single roster tobe considered a “stacked” lineup for a show, but sometimes, all you need are two bands. Two emotionally driven bands and that’lllast you quite a bit. Well, that is exactly what happened on April 16th, 2016, in Philadelphia’s own Electric Factory. Opening the show with a more somber, moody, emotional set, Caspian kicked things off.
