Pre-show banter…
The Invisible Humans asked if I would be interested in going down to San Diego to photograph the band at The House Of Blues with a few other bands. The “few other bands” happened to be The Adicts and Agent Orange with Igor Spectre opening the show – Hell yeah! Left my house at 2PM as the band load-in was at 5:30. I got there at 5PM, signed my waivers, got my pass and was allowed in by 5:30 – easy!

I was armed with my Canon 1Ds and three lenses; Canon’s 70-200mm f/2.8, Canon’s 15mm f/2.8 fisheye, and the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8. Here we go…

Venue Review…
My first time at this venue and wasn’t sure what to expect. The crew, security and staff were all friendly, helpful and outgoing – no issues at all. Out of the four HOB locations I’ve been to (LA, Anaheim, Vegas, and now SD) I like the layout of this one the best as it just seemed easier to navigate. They don’t have parking but there is a garage across the street that is open 24 hours so, again, it was pretty easy to figure out once I had my bearings on all the One-Way streets. The best part was that the venue allowed photo-pass holders to shoot from the pit (in front of the barricade) for the first three songs of the set for each band. After that I was able to capture from other areas of the venue, including the balcony. Overall I give this venue a 2 thumbs up.

Reviews, comments, and possible putdowns for The Invisible Humans…
The band started off strong but weren’t allowed to finish stronger due to being cut off by the venue – I guess they went over their 25 minute limit?? The show ended abruptly and with some confusion, which kinda sucked but that’s rock-n-roll, right? I know the band probably hates being compared to them but if I had to align them with another band (for classification purposes), I would have to say classic Devo. Basically, if you mix up classic sci-fi films, a Ludovico-type experiment, Devo, and Gary Numan in a stage-sized kettle, the output would be The Invisible Humans. Also, they have great shirts and a good CD available. Check ‘em out and give some support at…
