Teenage Bottlerocket @ Irving Plaza, NYC – 8.24.10
October 11, 2010 | Concert Photography
Teenage Bottlerocket were up next at the Bosstones’ show in August. I never saw them before but always wanted to. They have that Queers/Screeching Weasel punk rock sound and I love it! What I didn’t love during this set was the lighting at Irving Plaza in New York.
You can read a more detailed review over at ReadJunk.com.
The lighting wasn’t as bright for their set which kind of sucked for me since they move around a lot. They don’t move around like AFI or something, but just strumming away on their guitars and things like that. Since the lighting was darker, I had to hold my camera extra tight since the shutter speed was so low. I managed to get better shots with the 70-200mm f2.8 lens from further away and out of the pit. Sometimes, believe it or not, is better to do when tackling darker & sporadic lighting. Plus, it’s just nice to get a different perspective.
