Eagles of Death Metal | Las Rageous | Las Vegas, Nevada, April 22, 2017.

Jesse Hughes and his band, Eagles of Death Metal, were one of my favorite sets of the weekend at Las Rageous.  Music festivals always have people watching bands they may not be familiar with, but if anyone in the crowd wasn’t previously aware of Eagles of Death Metal, they were indoctrinated into the fold.  Jesse’s infectious enthusiasm spreads across the crowd and by the end of the first song, the party is on.  It’s simple, if you aren’t having a good time at an EODM show, something is wrong with you.

It was also a real treat to see Brent Hinds of Mastodon join them onstage.  I love to see bands genuinely having a good time touring together and Brent appeared delighted to be jamming with his friends.  I photographed them in classic black and white because Jesse looks like he traveled from some retro but ridiculously cool alternative dimension and looks amazing in monochrome.
