Live Coverage || State Champs @ The Academy, Dublin (22/10/2018)

State Champs rolled through Dublin last week and lemme tell you; they were definitely the best pop punk band that I’ve seen live. 

The band started the show with the single "Criminal", from the new album, "Living Proof" and the Dublin crowd immediately went crazy. The setlist consisted of a balanced mix between their latest album and the old material. I should point out that their energy on the stage is insane; Ryan Scott Graham is incredibly expressive -and probably one of my favorite guys to photograph- while Derek DiScanio is just brilliant singer live, sounding even better than in the recording. State Champs chose to close the show with the fan favorite "Secrets". A top notch performance, for sure. 
On a side note, the Academy only had one security guard in the barricade, who did not intimidate those who wanted to crowdsurf; it was a safe space where little ladies and big guys were all having fun.
