Bad Religion, the Offspring, and Pennywise unite for the Epitaph Records sponsored summer tour, Summer Nationals, which will also feature Stiff Little Fingers and the Vandals on select dates. The 24-date U.S. trek brought them to Atlanta, where our own Tom Dausner caught these great shots.

Turkuaz at Aisle 5
Brooklyn based funk band Turkuaz played at Aisle Five in Atlanta last week and here are some shots from the show!
Wood Brothers at The Buckhead Theatre
Fantastic time shooting the wonderfully talented Wood Brothers – This is from their Buckhead Theatre show in Atlanta.
Fear Factory at the Masquerade
Fear Factory destroyed the Masquerade on September 4th with an amazing set. Fear Factory was one of the first bands to pioneer industrial metal. It was great to see them back in Atlanta after a long absence. Fear Factory is on tour promoting their new album Genexas, which lead singer Burton made sure we pronounced correctly (ha). Their show was great and I found myself singing along while I took pictures of the band. The only thing I didn’t like was the fact I could hardly SEE the band. Once again the Masquerade didn’t bother to turn up the stage lights for the bands. This of course makes it very hard to photograph. Nonetheless, I still really enjoyed watching this band play some of my favorite tunes live like Shock, Edgecrusher, Damaged, and Demanufacture!
