In a set that featured plenty of microphone stand acrobatics, Decaydance rockers, The Academy Is…, came to the Susquehanna Bank Center last night in support of KISS and the “Hottest Show on Earth Tour”. The large crowd and William Beckett’s energy on stage made for an excellent night in Camden, in the shadow of downtown Philadelphia. The Academy Is… will be playing several headlining gigs between KISS dates, as outlined here.

Photography side note: Last night was my first time using the OP/TECH USA Dual Harness Strap. After making some initial adjustments to the straps in the pit, the harness worked like a charm and made switching cameras a breeze. No more getting straps tangled, or having them fall off my shoulder. I highly recommend it for anyone shooting with two bodies. Black Rapid also manufactures a similar Double Strap, but at $100 less and not requiring the tripod socket to be used, I prefer the OP/TECH.
