Yellowcard Live at Nosturi, Helsinki, Finland 27.3.2015

Yellowcard? Who are they? What kind of music do they play? Those were the exact questions goin’ thru my mind as it confirmed that I was granted access to shoot at this event.

Took the new album for a spin, didn’t quite bring it to me. There were couple “ok” songs there, but in all it just lacked something. Took some older albums for a spin, with the same outcome. Then I just thought that I’d just go with it and see what it would be like there at the show… I’ve been enjoying on that I’ll just go to a show without knowing anything before and either be stunned or bummed! Brings it’s own vibe to it that way.

Photography wise it was a struggle. The show was pretty dark, lot’s of blue light only and almost without no clear stage lights at all. First track went, second came…. and went. Then came the third one which was a bit better and I managed to get some pretty decent shots there. But in all there really weren’t much to do with photography wise. And it’s understandable as the show really isn’t for photographing, it’s for the audience. And I think that the audience was enjoying it, albeit I must say that during those first 5 tracks I was there, the audience were pretty quiet and steady. Band noticed it too and asked what’s going on as the audience were active through Less Than Jakes set.

I had to leave in the middle of the set and get to the next venue and shoot another show, but I hope that the audience got “warmed up” as the set went on and Yellowcard felt welcome and played a good show!

  1. Your style is very unique in comparison to other folks I’ve read stuff from.
    Many thanks for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I’ll just bookmark this blog.

  2. Wow, superb blog format! How long have you ever
    been running a blog for? you make running a blog glance easy.

    The total look of your site is wonderful,
    as neatly as the content material!

    1. Hi! Nice that You like what You see! I’ve been running this now for few years! Glad to have some feedback! Thanks! -Tomi

  3. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t
    show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway,
    just wanted to say fantastic blog!

  4. I got this site from my friend who shared with me regarding this website and now this time I am browsing this site and reading very informative articles here.

  5. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so
    I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    1. When you’re using wordpress and themes, not much coding is needed. Unless you want to build everything from the ground up!
