Review and Photos by MDG ROCK PHOTOGRAPHY
The Prophets of Doom, Earth Rockers, Blast Tyrants, Elephant Riders… or, just the mighty CLUTCH as most people know them, rolled through the Manchester Music Hall in Lexington, Kentucky on May 5th. To say you missed the show of the year if you were not there or at of the dates on this short run of shows would be a HUGE understatement, to say the least. With a line up that included my new pals in the FIREBALL MINISTRY, as well as RED FANG, THE BRONX and CLUTCH, it’s safe to say that Lexington, may never be the same. This really isn’t a formal “show review” because honestly, this was a quick tour (5 dates) and you already missed it so there is no “hurry and get your tickets” kind of spill here. Just rewind back a few sentences and read that lineup again…Blistering. Ask my longtime concert sidekick, Eric Moore of the SATURDAY NIGHT JAM SESSION podcast, or my pal Derik Novak, a staff writer over at DECIBEL GEEK. They will tell you that faces were melted and that the Earth was truely rocked. See what I did there? Consider this just more of an intro of sorts to my photo gallery from the show. Included here are some of my shots from all four bands. Please enjoy these photos and be sure to check out all of the bands mentioned here. Follow the links and buy some damn music.
