Noah and The Whale played to a packed Engine Shed, one that contained a very mixed crowd. It was easy to see some had heard "that song" on the radio and decided to come hear it live but overall it was a good crowd and Noah & The Whale got a loud (complete with extra teen girl shrieking) reaction throughout.

This was challenging to shoot. Bombay Bicycle Club was was hard to shoot in terms of lighting, but to me this show was a lot worse. There were glimpses of clean light, but they were fleeting. A lot of strobing lights, but the pattern never seemed to repeat meaning trying to make exposures was difficult. Couple this wit common cuts to just backlighting, heavy red in parts and no discerneable pattern to the lighting meant this was really hard to shoot. It sounds like I hated it, but in fact I enjoyed myself and the lighting challenges made it all worthwhile when I got a shot.
