State Champs is a pop punk band from a small town of NY. They came back here in Cleveland in the middle of their tour with All Time Low and Tonight Alive. I guess they wanted to do a more intimate show here before going overseas for the summer/fall. Local bands such as Dead Leaves and We Were Kids opened up for them. Including a last minute entry into the booking, Rarity (Rise Records). What an amazing set of bands, and a amazing show it was. This was my forth time shooting State Champs and it feels like they get better every time.
