Well well well, Traams eh? 2014’s dark horses! Gig and a half on Wednesday night, one that I wasn’t expecting to be so blown away by (why? I have no idea…).
Their album “Grin” has been one of those very few albums this year that I’ll continue to revisit when I’m bored of whatever new treasures I’ve recently added to my iPod. Always a great listen, but live they really put some magic into it. More live bands like this please! Energy in buckets and stage presence like no other (the bassist especially, just too bloody cool) .
The gig was wedged between two other gig nights for me (both of which I was photographing and reviewing – hectic) so I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did. Glad we arrived early as Crushed Beaks were also fab, with yet another ridiculously cool bassist. I wasn’t really intending on taking many, if any photos, but I’m really glad I took my camera along. It’s always the times when you least expect something awesome to happen…
As I was only taking photos for myself I just popped my 50mm f/1.8 on my camera as it’s light and easy to throw in my bag. I should use it more often really as it’s a lifesaver in low light conditions, which The Lexington can be at times. So, SO glad I bought the camera with me!
