Butcher Babies. These girls know how to pack a punch! From the time they
hit the mic they were guns a blazin’, holding onto that drive throughout the entire
set. Running from one side of the stage to the other, they took every chance
presented to connect with their fans. Whether it was grabbing a hand or exchanging
a high five, even taking it as far as to turn the main lights on to better see everyone.
The crowd’s reaction was equally devoted, as they extended their arms to their limit to
get as close as possible.
As a new concert photographer, such a highly active group as Butcher Babies
was a challenge, but one well accepted. It pushed me to work hard and to be a
step ahead. Their energy, being clearly expressed in photos, would provoke any
viewer to want to experience it themselves. This lively stage presence and their
angst-filled metal anthems give them a large following and a show worth attending.
