I did it. I finally saw JJ Grey & MOFRO live. Amazing. Amazing, indeed. Having spent almost 15 years in Atlanta prior to moving to St. Louis, I became familiar with MOFRO because they played in Atlanta quite often. I tried to go see them once, last year, at the Masquerade, but I was busted trying to sneak my camera and three lenses under my jacket, and I couldn't get in.
This time I was proactive. I reached out to the band's management and was granted a photo pass.
It was the first time at the Pageant, and it's a great venue. I hope to get to shoot there again...and soon.
