Counterparts Basement Show

I have a full Warped Tour 2017 blog in the works, but I felt like this deserved it's own thing! Since the Louisiana Warped date was canceled this year we had an unexpected off day in Nashville, TN on 6/28. Counterparts put together a last minute basement show with Gideon and a couple local bands from the area. Counterparts is one of my favorite bands and shooting shows in basements, houses, and VFWs is how I got my start with photography so I wasn't going to pass this up.

So I did everything my parents told me not to do when growing up, I got into a strangers car, traveled to a strangers house in a part of the country I'm not familiar with at all, went into their basement, and took photos of people screaming and hitting each other.  You can find them below.

Kind of like Warped Tour but no catering
