This is LogikParty playing in Whelans on August 11th. They were part of a three-band u:mack bill headlined by Liars and also featuring Cap Pas Cap. My photos of Liars and Cap Pas Cap didn’t turn out right at all – they were all way too dark. This was surprising as the exposure times for the Liars shots in particular were actually longer than the LogicParty ones. I have a whole list of bands I have shot where the pictures have just not come out properly, the ones that got away as it were. Off the top of my head these include Dinosaur Jr, Mission of Burma, Devendra Banhart and Wolf Parade. Taking long exposure shots on film in a darkened venue is a pretty hit and miss process and sometimes it just doesn’t work.
The shot of LogikParty above is far from perfect either …. witness the strange vertical streaks in the upper part of the image. These look like scratches on the film but I’ve no idea what caused them. I actually kind of like them though. Little imperfections like that can add to the image. As reported here, LogikParty are teaming up with excellent Irish indie label the Richter Collective, to release their forthcoming debut album. Best of luck to ’em.
