Bastille, Angel Haze, Brother & Bones
So off to another packed out night at the BIC to cover Bastille for safeconcerts.com
I turn up early (as usual)..I hate being late for anything. to pick my press pass up for the nights gig, there's a real positive vibe in the air and a great audience of different age groups, in fact it looks sold out.
first up was Brother & Bones http://www.brotherandbones.com/ the guys voice is pretty damn awesome. normal house lights made it pretty hard to shoot but it was a case of following the spotlight and getting the shot, this of course is easier to say than do but I got through it pretty well.
next up was Angel Haze http://www.angelhazemusic.com/ another strong act who kept the crowd going, loads of energy but a bugger to photograph as she moves at lightning speed.
Both acts were a great warm up for Bastille who were up next http://www.bastillebastille.com/home/
Its the first time I have seen these guys and they didn't disappoint, really strong sound and pretty theatrical (which live music should be IMO). As from a photography point of view it was damn hard, anything below 1600 ISO and 1/250 second and you're screwed. the guy moves like an eel on speed Whoopa.. click and you miss him. so it was another learning curve for me, but hey life is all about learning and that's fine with me.
overall Bastille put on a great show and I'd recommend catching them on their current tour.
