Rob Coons Photo Column—Frenzy Pit Shot

Sep 09, 2023

There’s nothing better than capturing a raging slam dancing photo in the middle of a pit. It always grasps the pure emotion we feel when our favorite bands are blasting it out on stage. This photo was taken during Frenzy’s wild set at Blackwater in Portland. It was the first time I’d seen a punk show in Portland and it was fantastic! All the bands ripped and the audience ripped even harder! Thanks to Frenzy, Long Knife, Electric Chair, and Enzyme for giving it their all that night!
