Originally from the Doylestown area, Circa Survive returned to Pennsylvania to play a show at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg. Prior to the band walking out on stage I over heard a photographer and a security saying how the crowd would be tame because it wasn’t a metal show, clearly they have never seen Circa Survive perform to a home-state crowd before. Anthony Green walked out on stage to be hit with a ball of glow sticks and was greeted by half a dozen crowd surfers before the music even began. Every face in the crowd was that of pure excitement and the bands fed off this energy as they started their fan-voted setlist with “Holding Someone’s Hair Back.” The band didn’t waste to much time in between songs and great 12 song set before the night was over.
Though the lighting may not have been the best for photographing, I had a blast when I was in the photo pit and still managed to capture some great moments on stage. The lack of front lighting really gave a great vibe to the show actually so I can see why they did that. It was also awesome to see all of excited fans that ended up in front of the barrier after crowd surfing, some of them even got a high five from Anthony Green before they got escorted back into the crowd. If you haven’t seen it yet be sure to check out Sight of Sound Magazine‘s exclusive interview with Anthony Green as well as the full photo gallery and setlist from Circa Survive‘s return to Pennsylvania at the Sherman Theater below.
