Vegas, Suicide, Vegas

The following three shows/short runs I did were all self assigned. I rode with Pierce The Veil to Las Vegas on October 22nd for a quick one-off they had with A Day To Remember.

Here is quick video Casey made from our trip. For the record, the poop bag he threw at me wasn’t the real one.

This is Robert, he is a San Diego friend of mine. Please note the sign emerging from his stomach, it’ll remind you of when you were 10.

Suicide Silence played at Soma in San Diego, CA on October 28th. I knew the guys from a past shoot and warped tour and they also had one of my old friends from the Midwest out with them to “party manage”.

For Halloween weekend I asked Sheep, Bring Me The Horizon‘s tour manager if I could travel with them for two days. He said sure thing. I hopped on their bus in San Diego, and got off in Las Vegas.

I slept in Bring Me The Horizon‘s front lounge. I woke up to their bus driver at 2:00am threatening (jokingly) to do something bizarre to me- he’s the crazy guy towards the bottom of this post with the incredibly long tong.

“Best intro ever” award goes to Polar Bear Club, everyone loves Dexter. Yes, Sheep up to no good, again.

The band entered the stage to the Dexter intro music. Right after I took this image, he stabbed Sheep, and then blood was sprayed all over and a severed arm was thrown into the crowd, it was awesome.

Look carefully…


I passed out that night in Bring Me The Horizon‘s back lounge. I hung out with them in Vegas the next day and caught a plane home that night. Most random image ever, snapped it an hour before catching the cab to the airport.

Shania Twain doing an interview in the vacant House of Blues- I sniped a creeper image of her with my 70-200mm.

s’all I got for now.

    Looking back on it, I’m pretty bummed I was too out of it to call and meet up with you all while I was down there for my stuff… Ah well, I’m gonna try and hit up SoCal around New years.
