I'm guessing these are the parents of the bass player for the band America (still touring after more than forty years), seated onstage (probably the quietest place) throughout the set.

One of my favorite type of newspaper assignments is to capture "wild art", which is defined as "Stand-Alone, Feature Shot, Enterprise art are found moments that are intended to be realistic slices of everyday life" (definition taken from this glossary). These are typically images that caption themselves, not needing a lot of words to get their point across. For this challenge, I'm scoring images as whether I'd like to see them on the front page of a paper as feel good wild art. If I don't think they would make the paper, I'm then asking myself, "does it make me feel good?" If it doesn't do much for me, well then, oh well...

Nice idea, love the sentiment. This situation could possibly have offered a more dynamic image, like if they were more expressive or active (clapping or taking a picture).
