Sisters of Mercy is one of the groups I thought I'd never get to see live. A blonde (!) Andrew ("I'm not goth, damnit") Eldritch and company appeared at the State Theatre in Detroit on September 30, 1999. About the quality and quantity of the pictures: the pictures look grainy because (besides using 800 speed film cuz it was dark inside) a *lot* of smoke/fog was used in the show, so much that when the doors to the street were opened the smoke poured out of the theatre (it looked cool!) I was about 10 feet from the stage, just to the right of center. These six pictures are the best of 15 that I took of the band. Other pics turned out ok, but there was too much distraction in the pictures i.e. heads, arms, or the backlighting was too intense. Click on a picture to see the larger version. Or, right click and 'Open in new window".
