Tuesday evening, Akron's own Red Sun Rising hosted a special free show at The Empire Concert Club & Bar to give their fans a sneak peak of their performance before they ship off on tour with Pop Evil next month. The guys played a 35-minute set to a packed house of the biggest RSR fans. As loyal as the fans are toward the band, RSR never take it for granted. They have the up-most respect for their fan base and this free show was another great example of appreciation for their hometown.
This was my third seeing RSR and every time I come out with my camera, I walk away with some of my best shots. That has to tell you something about these guys. My favorite is seeing Tyler bust out those insane solos and the expression he gives is pure gold.
The image you see above is a double exposure of Tyler head banging. His movement intrigued me, so I thought it be cool to dramatize it through a time-lapse shot.
Red Sun Rising will be playing one last show before the Pop Evil tour begins at the Akron Musica Halloween evening. I'll be there ready locked and loaded. If you happen to be there, say "hello".

I would of liked to got better shots of the other two members, but the place was crowded and limited my movement to change stage angles.
