Night Shift Sheffield: Dyonisis, The Webb, Jan Doyle Band

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!

The first Dyonisis gig for a while and the last one I’ll take photos of with Lou singing!

I caught them a few weeks ago in Sheffield on her penultimate gig but didn’t take my camera for wanting just to watch them. This gig though back in February was a bit of a pain for photos. The stage is quite high, meaning a lot of shots become “up nose” photos, which are rarely flattering. Also we had some weird head height spot lights going on, meaning that quite a few shots of Nel were completely un-rescuable due to turning her face into a white beacon of light! This set also had an awful lot of focus issues. I suspect that a combination of the high stage and wide aperture meant the focusing was a lot less forgiving than usual. Some of the Unkillable Cleric shots in this set show the problem, but I figured the shots were good enough

The event was put on as a celebration of the life of Dora and to collect donations for Ben’s center
