Westbound Train @ Roseland Ballroom, NYC – 6.26.08
Westbound Train hail from Boston and brought the ska & soul to the packed Roseland crowd Thursday night. I saw Westbound Train last year in Circleville, NY for the Big Orange Bonanza and liked their sound. While I think they play good music, I think it would have been better for them to open up the show. Suburban Legends were more energetic I guess but WT still got the crowd moving.
It was harder to shoot Westbound Train for some reason. The singer/trombone player Obi moved around a lot and covered most of his face with the mic. So it was hard to get some good, clear shots of him. Plus the lighting wasn’t as bright as the Suburban Legends set. I shot their set mainly with the 70-200mm f2.8 lens and the 18-70mm f3.5 lens.
