Ashes (BE), Vulvodynia and Peasant at Club Med

Fri

2017

I’m always happy shooting at Club Med, the venue has become the perfect haven for all things hardcore and punk and you always know what a gig there will entail: a lot of carnage. Most recently said carnage was provided by young Belgians Ashes, supported by Vulvodynia (who I admit stole the show for me) and Peasant.

Here are some shots of the night.

PISCES POP CT Edition : Sol Gems, Hellcats and Diamond Thug at Manila Bar

Fri 3 March 2017

I love Hellcats, they’re always one of the most exciting and energetic bands to watch and shoot. Last week they supported Sol Gems for their celebration of their collective  March/piscese birthdays at Manila Bar, along with Diamond Thug, who were a last minute lineup addition (funnily they were also a last minute substitution the last time I saw them, a week before.)

Dangerfields, Diamond Thug and Caelo at Mercury

Sat 25 February 2017

This was a weird one…on paper this gig seemed great (I’m a fan of all the bands and generally enjoy watching them) but somehow it didn’t translate to a great real-life experience. For whatever reason I just wasn’t feeling it, and to be honest I struggled a bit being there. The vibe was just off. It’s unfortunate, but it happens sometimes. Ah well, I’m sure next time will be better.

Lo Ghost at Cafe Roux CT

Tues 21 February 2017

I’ve been keen to check out alt electronic soul (for lack of a better description) duo Lo Ghost for a while, and when I finally did I wasn’t disappointed – their show at Cafe Roux, while apparently a bit more mellow than their usual set, was a great introduction to their sound. Sometimes it can be distracting when band members swap instruments but the dynamic between Shannon Devy and Evan Strauss, both very strong vocalists and multi-instrumentalists, is great, and their performance felt very fluid and natural.

If you’re a fan of intelligent and emotive music I definitely recommend checking them out.
