They also have the unique distinction of being two of Tony Pierce‘s favorites. And now I see why he’s been raving about them so damned much. Tony P.’s word is as good as gold.
UPDATE: I should mention that I had to deal with a rather rowdy crowd around me last night. I was just about in the front row and *this close* to Juliette, and as a result, was pushed and shoved ad nauseum during several of Juliette’s songs, which is par for the course given the nature of her music, but it pissed me off to no end. I wound up having to fend off the moshers by pushing them back and elbowing them (with limited success), and I even had my camera cocked and ready to use as a weapon (in self-defense) if things had degenerated even further. Adding insult to injury, there were at least two other photographers around me who had some items stolen… Photog #1 had two rolls of film stolen from his bag and Photog #2 had his camera bag (containing batteries, an extra lens, and a flash) stolen altogether. Considering that all I lost was my patience, I suppose I didn’t fare too badly.
UPDATE #2: Photo links updated.
