Recent shoot for @thefader with hardcore Boston band Vein. A few lines from the story: A few weeks before the August Hall show, Vein performed at mid-sized New York venue Irving Plaza. Just as things were heating up, security made it apparent that they would be getting physically aggressive. The close-knit crowd retaliated as a pack, taking the fight from the stage to the back of the venue. The band paused for a moment to assess the situation before kicking into a higher gear, encouraging the remaining fans to climb the barrier. The scene was ecstatic and frenzied; from the mezzanine, you could feel the heat rise to the ceiling. At one point, Anthony front-flipped into the drum set. “You can’t let bullshit like that be the focus,†he tells me later, of the altercation. “The vibe was so strong. Everybody pulled through for us and we pulled through for them.â€
