Saturday night, after members of Amon Amarth and Enslaved attended a Boston Bruins game donning Amon Amarth hockey jerseys, they played a packed show along with the openers, Skeletonwitch, at the House of Blues in Boston.
The show started at 6pm and ended at 9:30pm which meant I could be home by 11:00pm. On a Saturday? What?!!!! Often I don’t even get in my door until 3am after shooting a show. I only had to pay $15 in parking and although I had to ingest copious amounts of cold meds to get myself human, I couldn’t ask for a better show in Boston.
The only “thumbs down” was being very politely scolded by security after getting an upstairs shot of the headliners, Amon Amarth. The guy was really nice but I was kind of surprised. He told me I couldn’t take a single shot up there (for the 2 seconds it took me) because it was after the three song rule. If I was using my cell phone, like everyone else, I guess it would have been a-okay. I always find that stuff strange. It’s not like the venue made us stow our cameras or anything. Anyway, my bad, and thanks to security for being so nice.
The show was pretty sweaty at the end of the night, even for a balmy 30 degree Boston evening.
This is one of the two offending photos that got me scolded. I’m a bad girl.
