“It has been brought to my attention that there are a few blissful souls are under the assumption the background image on the website is of “their crowd”. Contrary to your incoherently bad status update, all photos that appear on www.upstatemetal.net are the property of our photographers contracted out by us, or the property of their rightful band. We use only professional photos, press photos, or photos that were submitted by the band. All permissions acquired. We would need to do far too much tiling of “your crowd” for it to appear that size.
The photo that appears on the background of the website currently is the property of our staff photographer, Steve Watson of Watsonphoto. This photo was taken at The Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie, NY. Any questions or comments regarding the construction or content of the website is welcome to be directed to myself, Christine Palmer.
You can do so by email, phone call, Facebook message, or any other means you see fit. Or just simply go fuck yourself.
