U.S. punkers The Dead Milkmen have enjoyed a cult following for years. Starting off in the 1983 in Philadelphia, (ironically the same year I started in concert photography)  they developed their style and sound while growing their alternative and indie audience and spreading their unique take on life and music. 

Today’s  Pics From The Pit takes us into the world of punk. I had the chance to catch them at a festival a couple of summers ago in Toronto, and I have to say they were one of the best acts there. Killer energy and a great set of music. The crowd loved them. With songs like Punk Rock Girl, Smoking Banana Peels, and Bitchin Camaro, they certainly have a wry sense of humour to their music. I suggest you give them a listen. Here are some images from the show I caught, hope you enjoy. Scott – @ScottBurnsImages

Here’s Rodney Anonymous pointing out a fan in the crowd.  The next shot shows who he was pointing at.

This is the young fan, with the green hair, that Rodney reacted to. He would later bring this lucky kid up on stage. What a blast!
