Can you tell I’m on holiday so I’m getting the chance to get through some old photos I’ve not had chance to work on for a while? This set is from June. Nightshift is a localish/regional dark gigs and DJs night. I spotted that Dyonisis were playing, so jumped at the chance to see them with a changed line up. The lighting in Mulberry Tavern was actually surprisingly good. THere was a dark spot on the right side of the stage, but this was only a problem for Dyonsis as the other two bands didn’t have enough members to be stood in it!
Jan Doyle Band
Firegarden had an EP launch party at The Local Authority (or “The White Room” as we like to call it) at Corporation. I’m never really sure about taking photos at this venue, something about the height of the stage makes it difficult. The photos of Delirium came out much better than the other two bands though. Part of that is due to there being less space at the stage due to all the people dancing around for them, but it’s not just that. Perhaps their clothes just stood out better under the lights!
Wanton number two! This time Dave had got them to fix the lights! Hurrah! That made for a MUCH better photography experience. We turned up early enough to catch Lugs soundchecking so I could see how the lights were landing on the stage, so based on this got Dave to adjust the right hand light so that this corner wasn’t in darkness. As a result, anyone stood in this part of the stage came out with the best photos (Bassists from Lugs and Trigger Thumb!). Next time I’ll work with Dave a bit to get the lights pointing into the right places and try and show the musicians so they are aware of it. We were also treated to Dave Benson Phillips being the compère for the evening. That made for some entertaining and rather manic photos…. No gunge though…
50 shots! Marvellous:
Wanton: Trigger Thumb, Grace Kim, Lugs
