Opening up for Stone Temple Pilots, Filter played at The Paramount in Huntington, NY recently.  Was I blown away?  Nah.  Was I more impressed than I thought I would be?  Yah….

Notes:

Ok, I’ll admit it.  I always thought Filter was a bit of a weaker attempt at creating the Nine Inch Nails sound.  Being as front man/vocalist Richard Patrick used to be in NIN, it was more or less a given.

The lighting for Filter wasn’t great, but wasn’t terrible.  While there wasn’t a mass pounding of spotlighting like there was for STP, there was some light here and there that floated around the stage and properly white-lit the band.

Towards the end of the set, Richard Patrick jumped in to the crowd, and surfed around while singing.  Luckily, I kept my camera out and was able to get some cool shots of it.

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8

Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
