Kaskade + Crystal Method + The Prodigy at WaMu Theater

Posted in assignment work, Downtown Seattle, editorial work, music, Washington by bermanphotos on May 31, 2009

Last night I had an assignment for the SeattlePI to photograph an amazing six-hour concert by three different techno bands, Kaskade, Crystal Method, and The Prodigy, at the WaMu Theater in Seattle.

To say it was surreal would be an understatement. Men and women entranced by shimmering glowing neon lights everywhere, the hypnotic bass notes pumping through the buildings all the way to the bathrooms — and everywhere — sweating, moving, masses of people. Like other events I have shot, although I felt out of place, I never felt unwelcome.

It was a great experience and I had a blast photographing the shows. Hopefully I get to cover more shows of this epic magnitude.
