THRICE VHEISSU 15TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR
I’m running late.
When you have a press photo pass for a show, you’re allowed in the photo pit right in front of the stage for the first 3 songs of a set only. So if you’re late, you’re fucked.
The plan was to get to Brooklyn Steel by 9pm. With the show starting at 7pm and Holy Fawn, Drug Church (who everyone has been raving about) and mewithoutYou opening, I figured Thrice would not go on till about 10pm.
It’s 9:05pm. My friend texts me- “Hurry! The last band just got off and I think Thrice is next.”
I was still on the L train coming in from city and had about a 10 minute walk from the Graham Avenue station to the venue. I wasn’t only going to shoot Thrice, I was going to see one of my favorite bands. I cannot be late.
I look at my phone as I finally reach the venue. It reads, 9:25pm. I get through security, walk up to the ticket booth to pickup my credentials and I see a sign. Thrice 9:30pm SOLD OUT!
I made it.
