This area has several Christian rock bands. Consequently, there are several all-day benefit concert festivals for these groups. Each time I cover one of the Christian concert festivals, The Red Airplanes play during the time I'm there.
The band knows how to be visual. They also don't have a problem with me roaming around the stage to try different angles. So, they get the coverage. I'd like to show other bands, but most still don't know to step away from the microphone and do something interesting and repetative.
If y'all know anything about visual sociology, repetition is the key to getting a particular hook documented. We'll talk more about this process sometime.
Enough for now,
