Growing up, I had photos of Good Charlotte plastered all over my binder. In true eight grade fashion, I listened to The Young and The Hopeless on repeat as though the album's home was in my cheap white boombox covered in band stickers. It was nostalgic photographing a band I listened to in my early teens. The most surprising part was seeing people my age running around moshing and crowd surfing.
I had a hard time finding parking, but made it just in time to catch the end of Set Your Goals, which was great because the band is always a blast to catch live. Next was The Story So Far—who photographers only got to shoot for one song because crowd suffers kept swarming into the photo pit.
Next was Good Charlotte, who I found myself humming along to as I photographed. I'm not sure if frontman Joel Madden heard me, it's doubtful as I was next to the giant speakers near the stage, but he stoped right in front of me and posed for a shot.
Though it'd been a while since I saw Good Charlotte live, the band members still had the same amount of energy they did back in 2006 when I last saw them. After I was done photographing them, I went up to the balcony to watch the show but couldn't help but run back to the floor after a few songs to join the mosh pit, camera bag and all.
