Frank Turner Invites Crossfade Backstage at Social Distortion's Fillmore Show

One of the perks of being a concert photographer is sometimes you'll luck into a behind-the-scenes pass. You'll get to mingle (very briefly) with rock stars. Partake in a few ounces of free booze. And high-five beautiful groupies.

Anyway, Saturday was one of those "sometimes" for Crossfade photo guy Ian Witlen. The way he puts it: "British folk-punk musician Frank Turner was kind enough to invite me backstage for a drink and chat about the last few days on the road with Social Distortion and Lucero."
