A nice Rock and roll/rhythm and blues/country/Rockabilly gig at Islington Assembly Hall. Was expecting it to be more lively – but it was fairly relaxed. Would have been a great place to photograph the crowd too as there were lots there dressed up in a Rockabilly style.
There was only two or three of us photographing the show so plenty of space to move around. Lighting was good too with no crazy smoke etc.

Going to try to catch up with publishing pictures from some of the gigs I’ve covered.
This one was a gig that I’d looked forward to and specially requested. Although unfortunately Brixton Academy are fairly on the ball at escorting photographers out of the building once they’re done. This isn’t unusual so not something to be upset about. It tends to bee the all seater or larger venues which do this, smaller venues are usually Ok if you behave yourself i.e. put the camera away.
The Die Antwoord show was fairly tricky photography wise – lots of UV and back-lighting. Had hoped the results would be better. Ah well – the other photographers would have had the same issues.
