I have several buddies that play in tribute bands around Austin. A couple weeks ago I got to see them playing across three different tributes at Come and Take It Live. Telephantasm (Sound Garden), Feed My Eyes (Alice in Chains), and Naked and Fearless (Tool) all played great sets. I’m always impressed with the talent these guys all have. While they do it for fun, they take the reproduction of the music very seriously. It’s not an easy undertaking to play this sort of music well - especially Tool.
It was my pleasure to be able to document some of the show with my camera. Yes, I’m still shooting live music my trusty Fujifilm X100F. It wasn’t easy at times. Not because of the camera - a mosh pit was going on behind me during Naked and Fearless! Those crazy kids… A few favorites from the show are below.
