I’ve learned to take my shots in the world of metal. And in this case, to get my shots of New Orleans’ Goatwhore, a band I’ve wanted to see now for months, I had to take a few … to the balls! Yeah, the crowd got a bit physical during this band’s particularly solid set Monday night, but it was worth it to be part of the wildest crowd I’ve experienced yet at the 5th Quarter. I got my photos, I took my punches, I got a few in of my own, and then got the hell out of the way and enjoyed plenty of amazing metal in the process!
If you haven’t had the chance to catch a show at Mona and Shannon’s bar, get your asses down there — the 5th Quarter is among the upper echelon of live music venues in the nation hands down, metal or not! And it’s right in our back yard here in Indianapolis. No excuses!
