Makeshift Parachutes

I had great fun photoing Makeshift Parachutes last weekend.  They are a band i’ve known about for a while but never actually seen live, or photographed, until now.  I have to say they were amazing live and you should definitely go and see them if you get a chance.  They have such an enthusiastic set of followers too.  Definitely one of the highlights of my year so far!   Support was from Smokestack Slim and Dual

Dictaphone Blues live in Auckland

I’ve only ever seen Dictaphone Blues as a solo affair so it was great to see the full band version.  So many talented musicians in one tiny stage.  There was a great vibe and a friendly crowd.  You can see the pictures from Two Cartoons who were supporting here These pictures also appear on UnderTheRadar

Model Train Wreck – EP Release at Cupid Bar, Auckland

I got to catch the beginning of Model Train Wreck’s excellent set on Friday night at the Cupid Bar in Pt Chev, Auckland.  They are a fun band with great songs and really worth checking out. I always like to research the bands i’m going to be photoing and i discovered an earlier album of theirs on Spotify which really enjoyed.  I love recognising music while photoing a band so i was delighted they played some tracks from that album at […]
