Less Than Jake started their UK / Euro tour from Glasgow, UK on 4th of March and ended it in Finland on the 27th. Between these dates there were total of 18 shows and only 5 days off / travel days. Pretty efficient says me! The reason that I brought that up is that the band was super tight this evening! The show rocked, kicked ass like a mule! I’ve never seen them before and had pretty much no expectations. But i let the venue completely amazed! And I think that the rest of the crowd did too and what was just amazing to see that the people were like really enjoying them selves there.
The crowd was really into the show, there were like almost no cellphones up taking pictures and filming videos or whatever, the people were singing along, dancing, they were fuckin’ in that show!! That made me really happy since you don’t get to see that very often nowadays. And I don’t know, but I think that it is at least one matter that even fuels the band for playing their hearts out every night, to see the crowd participating to the show and not just passively standing behind their phones..
Picture wise it was just great! The lights were really good, made my work a tad bit easier. Left me more space to move around and concentrate on the composition, atmosphere and all. It was really nice, a welcome alteration since most of the time I operate in smaller venues that have not that good lights, which are, pretty essential in photography. But anyway, here’s pictures. Hope that You like them as much as I liked creating them!
