Social Distortion at Fox Oakland Theater ~ Music Photography Misti Layne ~

Photographing live music is a curse and a blessing. If I’m shooting, I’m not really listening. If I’m listening, I’m wishing I was shooting. Catch 22 of music photography any way I look at it! But the good thing is I usually only get the first 3 songs to photograph and then I can put everything away and really listen. Simple fact is for anyone, if you are photographing something you are not really in the moment. Your brain can’t handle it. Science!

When I saw Social Distortion at The Fox Oakland Theater I think it was the 4th time. No, 5th. Well, maybe 6th. I don’t really know. One of the few bands that I’ve seen numerous times to be sure. I din’t have permission to photograph in the pit but it didn’t stop me from taking something a little bit better than my mobile. While the images are limited and from one viewpoint–trying not to be in the mosh pit–my memories and ears are filled with the sound. Awesome job Social Distortion…shall see you again!
