All Stars Festival @ The Palladium 7.24.11


Chaos, mayhem, and panic was in store for the Palladium Ballroom, and that was before the any of the 30 or so bands even took the stage. Due to the recent deaths and injuries at the Electric Daisy Carnival, the Dallas Fire Marshall and Police Department would not allow the promoter, AEG, to operate stages in both the main room and the South Side Music Hall. So to make up for this, the main stage was split down the middle and bands A-B'ed their way back and forth through the day. This made my job extremely easy, since all I had to do was walk from one side of the photo pit to the other.

Shelby and I arrived at the venue around 2:30 and after mingling with a few of the bands, made our way out to the main floor where War of Ages was wrapping up their set. Up next was The Chariot out of Douglasville, Georgia, and that's where my pics begin.
