Live Review: Train @ Enmore Theatre – Monday June 21, 2010


25 Jun

Lifemusicmedia.com have just uploaded my live review of the Train gig at the Enmore Theatre in Newtown (Sydney, Australia) on Monday night, June 12, 2010. Read the excerpt below and hit the links to read the full review and view the image galleries:

…Train are entertaining. Monahan refused to stand still; stalking the stage from one end to the other while smiling at the audience and taking photos of himself with fan’s cameras from the stage’s edge. Stafford swapped guitars between each song, cutting an imposing figure in his military-styled jacket and polished skull. They’re happy to get as close to their fans as they can, foregoing a crowd barrier as flailing arms and hungry hands grasp desirously from the dance floor below…

Live Review: Cassette Kids @ Oxford Art Factory


23 Jun

Lifemusicmedia.com have just published my review of the Cassette Kids gig at the Oxford Art Factory in Darlinghurst last Friday night, June 18, 2010. See the excerpt below and CLICK HERE or click the image below to read the full review:

…It was refreshing to see a pop-infused group like Cassette Kids displaying such an enthusiastic, energetic and believable stage presence.

Live Music Photography: Train @ Enmore Theatre


22 Jun

I went and saw American pop/rock group Train at the Enmore Theatre (Sydney) last night for lifemusicmedia.com. Again, not my kind of music, but they were consumate professionals who delivered a very slick performance to a relatively full house. The audience was made up of a lot of women, of all ages and apparent backgrounds. I suppose that’s because of their chart-friendly vibe – but don’t they realise they’re all old men?

I’ll be scribbling up a review of the show for LMM soon, but suffice it to say that the show seemed to mainly revolve around the singer and the bald guitarist, with the other musicians hiding in the shadows behind. It often reeked of cabaret, with a lot of banter to the audience, interaction and even a moment when the singer brought six young women onto the stage to sing along to one of their hits.

I’ve uploaded a selection of images that I took on the night to my flickr page. CLICK HERE to see more. A selection of images exclusive to lifemusicmedia.com will be online shortly.

 
 

Live Music Photography: Cassette Kids @ Oxford Art Factory


20 Jun

I shot a gig at the Oxford Art Factory in Darlinghurst (Sydney) on Friday night, June 18. It was headlined by the Cassette Kids and supported by Howl and Kids of 88. While not my style of music, it was a good opportunity for me to test out my new camera gear under stage lighting conditions. It went well!

CLICK HERE to check out a selection of about 30 images from the show and additional, exclusive images are now online at Lifemusicmedia.com.

Would love to hear your feedback on the shots, as it was the first live show I’d shot in about 10 years.

This is a shot from a shoot I did with Newcastle band Chinchen several years ago. It was shot on 35mm transparency film and cross processed to achieve the exaggerated look. This shot was subsequently used on the band’s posters and also on the cover of Newcastle street press, U-turn.
