My main purpose of heading to the gig was to see Bass Drum of Death but decided to head there early to catch Yak. Knew nothing about them until they started playing, and I still don’t know anything about them apart from the fact that they are remarkable live. Definitely seeing them again at some stage.
Seeing as Yak were so fantastic, odds on the next band, Crows, would have to be crap, SURELY. Nope, another remarkable band and another remarkable performance.
And then there was Bass Drum of Death. By that stage the crowd was packed in like sardines and the mosh pit was like a whirlpool, sucking everyone in. Almost lost my balance up the front a few times but couldn’t stop laughing because everyone was just having way too much fun. Not the best shots of these guys due to no flash/being jostled constantly, but I gave it a red hot go.
Managed to not break the camera and the 24-70 survived to tell the tale… just. Black and white shots again because red lighting is just NO FUN when you’re trying to take photos without a flash.
If you can, check out ALL the bands in this post, live. It’ll be worth your while!
