The photo at the concert

It was under a bridge in Los Angeles where two worlds collided, where trendy meets punk. On one side there’s the kids who are dressed well and “dripped out,” and then there are those whose hair is in spikes and chains are considered an accessory.

Given any other circumstances this wouldn’t be a common meeting ground, however, all makes sense when given context. Two hundred kids are there to see punk influenced rapper Nascar Aloe.

It was also there where Dylan Keith remembers taking one of his favorite photos at a concert.

He was just enjoying himself in the crowd when a picture-worthy moment caught his attention.

A 15-year-old kid had just come out of a mosh pit with a bloody nose. Although the kid was bleeding, he was all smiles.

It was a moment that would remain on Dylan’s lock screen for the next two years.

“It was one of my favorite concerts cause it was a free show under a bridge and I was like, ‘what are we doing here?’” Keith said. “But, it turned out to be one of the funnest shows. You would think that it would go pretty bad just because that many people it would turn sour, but everyone seemed pretty in unison and didn’t push anything too far.”
