Ace pictures :)

I got home about an hour ago... they were much better tonight than at Nottingham's gig.

Looking forward to tomorrow (and Tuesday) :p

I ache! :D

Bah! Someone else who was at the gig who I would have liked to catch up with :-(

I'm looking forward to doing the gig tonight without a bag of camera gear on my back!

Well, I'll be there tonight, probably not in the pit this time though.
I'll more than likely be next to the bar for most of tonight - maybe we'll bump into each other this time :)

I'll keep an eye open. I'm probably going to try and get a position to watch/write from on the balcony.

Support were someone local - who were onstage about 7:20. Poppies about 8:20-8:30.

My current thought is to get to the venue at about 7:30. Then we can have a drink there and get a good spot. The pit was quite enthusiastic last night, but I suspect I'll find a good spot on the balcony.

Can you help me write it up? (Not that either of us are on a freebie of course - but I like having some words with the photos esp as this is my first direct evil-Clear Channel gig and I want to make a good impression).

That's where we'll be :-)

Was a grea gig. I was upstairs with countb's EOS 300D. I've held off buying a digital SLR mainly due to not wanting to spend loads of cash I cant afford, but having spent the night using one I want one! Wish I'd been as close as you though! :)

BTW, what ISO setting do you normally use at gigs? Have you got a particularly fast lens?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: January 23rd, 2005 02:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
If I'd have known you were in with a Canon I could have lent you my lenses after my go in the pit. I didn't want to use my camera after the three as I've been moaned at by security for doing that in the past.

Those are mostly ISO800 using a Sigma 24-70 f2.8, but shot at anywhere between 2.8 and 5.6 as the light was generally pretty good. Some of the others (when I put them up) were with other lenses (50mm, 20mm and 70-200mm).

I like to use ISO400 if I can, but 800 gives pretty good results - and the originals of these are mostly better. As they're quite colourful they've suffered heavily in being JPEG compressed for web down to 50KB.

Sweet pics :D

What was the situation - 3 songs and out? Or were you able to snap for the entire set?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: January 23rd, 2005 01:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
3 songs, no flash, out of the pit but not out of the venue :-)
xerode From: xerode Date: January 23rd, 2005 08:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ta for the info :)

One more question: was there any merchandise on sale? I need to know how much cash to bring with me...
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: January 23rd, 2005 11:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah - ranging from T-Shirts @ £16 to Hoodies at about £35. Obviously lots of shite outside.

"Instant" CDs and DVDs were between £15-£25 I think.

May be some errors - I didn't look too hard.
xerode From: xerode Date: January 23rd, 2005 11:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ta. Instant CDs and DVDs? Sounds interesting, what were these? Recordings of that show? I've not heard of anyone other than Throbbing Gristle do this, but I'd want to see the quality before buying, which I'm guessing is unlikely...
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: January 23rd, 2005 11:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
They had a load of cameras there tonight - and will have the DVD ready at the gig tomorrow I think. They're doing everynight on CD I believe. It's "Clear Channel Madness" I tell you.

The front of the stage tonight was 4 security people then three TV-sized video cameras. Front row probably had an interesting view...

Great gig, but I missed so many people. On the other hand I met so many other people I had no idea were going.

Started right at the back after getting a little lost on my way to the Academy. Nice and cool, good view but no atmosphere. Ended up bouncing around in the mosh pit for most of the second half. :)

Another time you're in Brum/I'm in Mancs we should make an effort to get together.

Best laid plans etc. :-)

Kickass!

w00p! Great pics, man. :)

Re: Kickass!

Cheers! Just out of interest how did you "find me"?
moosticks From: moosticks Date: January 27th, 2005 03:17 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: Kickass!

Somebody "linked you", on the PWEInation forum. ;)
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: January 27th, 2005 03:23 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: Kickass!

Ah! I was going to wait on the self-publicity there until I'd finished the whole set of pics.
moosticks From: moosticks Date: January 27th, 2005 03:28 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: Kickass!

Well you had better hurry up with those pics then!

Re: Kickass!

My bad, that was me when I posted my shots. Hope I didn't step on your feet or anything :/
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: January 27th, 2005 04:28 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: Kickass!

Not at all :-) You've got some really nice ones. Next time I shall try and catch them at the end of the tour as they'd slowed down even from Sat to Sun making getting decent photos much easier!
moosticks From: moosticks Date: January 27th, 2005 07:50 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: Kickass!

When do you think you'll have the rest up? I think that you've got the best shots I've seen so far..(no offense to anyone else who took pictures!) Let me know, ok? :D
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: January 27th, 2005 08:14 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: Kickass!

Watch my LJ is the answer. I'd be surprised if it happens by the weekend, but then I'm going away for a week. So you might have to wait 10 days.

I'm a little bit behind on gigs :-/
