on friday night, i went to the annandale hotel in the city with dan to watch chase the sun live. claude hay was the first support artist, and he is an amazing one man band. if you close your eyes, it really seems as if there is an entire band up on stage playing all these instruments - so you should check out his myspace and be blown away :). the second support band that played are in the first two pictures, their name is jarrah thompson and they came all the way from melbourne. the last support band was called monkey boy which consisted of a guitarist/singer and a drummer - who was actually close enough for me to take pictures of and i didn't get any good ones haha.
then last but not least, chase the sun came on for their album launch 'rednecks & gentlemen' and were pretty damn awesome. here are some of the photos i took of them:
this is guy is an amazing bassist! that's all i can say.
and so concludes the night. i took a lot of photos, but there are only a few that i was really really happy with. i prefer taking pictures of live music when there are light leaks and backlighting and all sorts of crazy things going on, so the pictures that i didn't like from that night just had washed-through lighting and looked kind of flat and boring.
oh and i also finally filmed a live gig like i always told myself i would do. i'll put it together soon and post it up on my youtube account.
i really miss taking pictures by the way, hopefully i'll have something new for you guys (and myself) soon!
