Black Riders Cult, Every Black Day, Broken Piano, Jan Doyle Band

A full on goth fest at the Mulberry, hosted by the irrepressible Derek of Jan Doyle Band. Sadly, I didn’t manage to stay for the last band, “John Merrick’s Remains” as I was shattered, but I do have a great set of photos of them from Goth City previously. Sorry guys! I’ll make it up to you.

I’m really happy with this set to be honest. Jan Doyle Band are a delight to photograph due to the animation and movement. Some of the other bands I struggled with dark corners on the stage meaning really only the vocalists were picked out, but the photos developed well with a bit of legwork in Lightroom and plugins. I managed to get some wobblecam videos too… Enjoy.

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!
