I wasn't sure what to expect shooting this show. For one I've never shot at this venue. Ever. Secondly, I've never seen this band live and had no idea what I was in for. As the opening band (Pacific Air) began playing I struggled to shoot in the really, REALLY, low light that Fitzgerald's had. Even with a my lens at wide open I was having to dial that old ISO up and up until I was in a range quick enough to catch the musicians. Fast forward to Ra Ra Riot and that's when the light show began. Holy shit did the light show begin. Impressive lights flickered on and off while the intoxicating dance beats and great live energy slithered all about the venue. If you weren't dancing, you weren't living. Plain and simple.
