Yes, after seven attempts since 2008, I finally got to shoot USS (Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker) live.

No sickness, no scheduling problems, no people-not-calling-me-back, no acts of God . . . I was gonna shoot USS live come hell or high water and, by gum, I did!

Ash’s guitar, fresh from the previous night’s performance. When USS gives, they give hard.

USS has only been on the scene since 2007 but, in that time, they’ve grown a massive, devoted following.

Human Kebab enjoys stage diving. And he’s very, very good at it.

My crowning shot of the night, and one of my best of 2012. Taken from atop a shipping container during the height of the concert. Good times.
