The first time I witnessed a Circa show was a few years back when they came to the Montgomery World Plaza here in Bakersfield. My brother Jacob and my friend Jessica were both fans so I decided I would go check out the show. Once they hit the stage the crowd went nuts. The show stopped a dozen times just so Anthony Green could instruct the audience to “get the fuck back!” So, when I heard they were going to play a drastically smaller venue, Jerry’s Pizza, I knew it was going to be crazy. So, when it came to the day of the show, I still wasn’t sure how it was going to work but I grabbed my camera and headed out to the venue.

Stage starts to disappear and security does it’s best to control the crowd.
