Peer into the rearview mirror at a week of eye-pleasing shows from Grand Rapids to Kalamazoo to the lakeshore, captured in images at Local Spins.
Hailing from the industrial town of Scranton, Pa., Motionless in White has cultivated a devoted audience of nearly 1.5 million followers on Facebook for its gothic metal and metalcore attack.
The band also has assembled a fan-pleasing lineup of hard-rocking openers for its “Graveyard Shift” tour, with Every Time I Die, Ice Nine Kills and Like Moths to Flames on the bill.
Local Spins photographer Anthony Norkus remarked that (in stark contrast to the “motionless” moniker of the headliner) those bands flew across the stage during their sets at 20 Monroe Live in Grand Rapids on Friday. “I haven’t seen that much action/speed at a 20 Monroe show since I started shooting there,” he quipped.
Check out his photos from Friday’s fast-moving show, followed by photo galleries from a week of diverse musical action, including electronic music’s Black Tiger Sex Machine inducing fan fervor at The Intersection, The Steel Wheels, Lucero and An Dro pumping up venues in Kalamazoo, the legendary Booker T. Jones returning to Holland’s Park Theatre, and Screaming Females and Radiator Hospital closing the weekend at The Pyramid Scheme (after Grand Rapids’ The Legal Immigrants entertained folks at the nightclub as part of a LaughFest show0.
