07.09.2011 BeAtlanta House Show (Pt 2.)

On Saturday, 15 bands came together to celebrate the 2 year anniversary of BeAtlanta.com. 15 Bands, 2 stages, 1 house. What a turnout! There were several hundred people there throughout the day, not to mention other bands that showed up just to watch. I showed up about 6 o’clock, and once again Jungol packed the house once they hit the stage!

Part 1 Lineup:
The Music Box (Canada)
Hip to Death
What Happened To Your Fire, Tiger?

Part 2 Lineup:
Sneaky Hand
Cusses (Savannah)
Jungol

Sneaky hand is one of my favorite bands to shoot. They’ve always got so much energy on stage! It’s a trip trying to follow Lead singer M@’s antics, and it’s always good to turn the camera on fellow photographer Kamil, co-owner of Pantauphoto.

Hug it out bitches. Bob congratulates Kamil on a great set.

Fireworks in the street!

I knew Cusses was going to be good when my buddy Drew Longino of Winter Ransom started drooling over them when they showed up. Wow, what a show! I was not expecting the bar to be raised with every band that hit the stage. I got some of the best shots of the night with them!

I had to leave the party to meet Darkwater Rising who were in town, so I missed The Charges. We ended up missing their set as well to see Cusses, but we did however, talk Dark Water Rising to coming out to the house party after they finished up.

Ffff. M@ of Sneaky Hand and Homer of FYN.

Jungol was phenomenal as usual! It was hard to get shots this time, the only lights in the room were coming off the LCD panels on their keyboards. At this point my flash was long dead, so I had to use the on-camera flash, blinding everyone in the room every time it went off. I think Josh started closing his eyes because of my flash, sorry Josh! After a few songs I was tired, hot, covered in spilled beer, and pissing off the dancing naked gentlemen behind me…so I tapped out and sat back to enjoy the rest of the show.

07.09.2011 BeAtlanta House Show (Pt 1.)

On Saturday, 15 bands came together to celebrate the 2 year anniversary of BeAtlanta.com. 15 Bands, 2 stages, 1 house. What a turnout! There were several hundred people there throughout the day, not to mention other bands that showed up just to watch. I showed up about 6 o’clock, and once again Jungol packed the house once they hit the stage!

This was my most challenging photo session to date, with very little room to maneuver and odd to no lighting setups. Especially the outdoor stage on the back patio, I really couldn’t get any good shots from that angle. Finally when Jungol hit the stage, they were playing in PITCH BLACK! That being said I still managed to get some kickass shots. Enjoy!

Part 1 Lineup:
The Music Box (Canada)
Hip to Death
What Happened To Your Fire, Tiger?

Part 2 Lineup: posting tomorrow 7/12!

Scheduled Lineup. Jungol actually ended up going on closer to minight.

All Stars. Josh of Jungol, Homer of FYN, and Drew of Winter Ransom.

Who needs roadies? Hip to Death getting setup.

Dancin in the Yard. Girl dances to The Music Box.

As I mentioned, the patio stage was really hard to get a shot of. There’s bottles, tarps, and equipment blocking every angle.

This one cracked me up as I was trying to decide which shot was better, so I decided to keep ‘em both and make and animated .gif out of it.

These girls were really good, but I couldn’t get any shots of the band. The side was blocked off with equipment so I couldn’t get a view. I gave up, took a seat and just enjoyed the music.
