The Latchikos @ Irving Plaza, NYC – 3.15.13
March 16, 2013 | Concert Photography
I didn’t know a thing about the Latchikos but ended up really liking their set! The band consist of just two guys jamming away and they are described as Gyp-Hop. It’ a mixture of Celtic, gypsy, reggae and hip hop. Whatever it is, it’s entertaining stuff!
Here’s a key example of why you should always photograph opening bands! Some photographers just show up for the headliner but I don’t like to do that. The singer/violinist’s facial expressions alone are worth your time! He reminded me of a Eugene Hutz type. Very energetic, humorous and great music faces. The guitarist/percussionist used a freakin’ green Easter Egg for an instrument. Doesn’t get much more awesome than that!
The lighting for their set was a bit tough, so I shot around ISO 4000-6400. The lighting colors made it a bit tricky with trying to make the photos look sharp. I came to the conclusion that they looked ten times more appealing in black & white, plus sharper.
