Our photographer Sarah Lucas recently covered the Thrice/Circa Survive co-headliner. She had the pleasure of photographing under CHON and it was surely a night to remember. As a sold out show, the entire atmosphere of the show was indescribable. The House of Blues hosted this special occasion in Orlando and everyone was surely enjoying every moment throughout the night. CHON’s set was no doubt the whole package. As someone who has never experienced or seen CHON live, one can expect a dynamic, instrumental, yet melodic set. CHON’s aesthetically pleasing performance is appealing to all types of audiences.
