Big Boi at the Georgia Theatre

I photographed Big Boi, part of the rap duo OutKast, at the Georgia Theatre for the Athens Patch newspaper on Thursday, August 11, 2011. With his primary roles as Andre 3000’s partner in OutKast and as one of the central members of the Dungeon Family, Big Boi (born Antwan Andre Patton) appeared on stage at the Georgia Theatre on Thursday. The show is part of the two week long celebration commemorating the reopening of the Georgia Theatre which was completely destroyed in a fire in 2009. After a major fundraising effort by the Athens community, construction was completed in July of this year and the two week celebration is still underway with Drive by Truckers scheduled for tonight and Saturday and Gillian Welch scheduled for Sunday. Amun Ra and Triz opened the show. These are my favorite images.
