The Carburetors @ John Dee 19.12.2014

Ain’t no better way to get in the proper Christmas mood than some Fast forward Rock’n roll.
December 19, The Carburetors performed their annual ”Christmas show” at John Dee.

Starting off with the curtains pulled together with Jussi Bjørling singing “o helga natt” (O Holy Night), sets the mood before they start their well known intro with V8’s roaring, making your eardrums allmost burst!

Packed with a 24-70 and a 200mm prime lens, I was there to shoot the show. But this time it was quite a challenge. There were a lot of people ready for getting in the Christmas mood, and the place was packed almost full. Of course great for the guys on stage, but a pain in the ass for me. John Dee being a fairly small venue, there aren’t any dedicated photo pits. Getting any clear view without arms and heads in the frame is challenging. In some shots it ads to the mood, but not in every shot.

But despite the crowd, I feel I got a fair amount of decent shots. Especially when the lighting tech people were on my side, spreading some awesome light! (Thanks!)

Kai Kidd had some great lights on him in several occasions, making him one of my favorite objects this evening. Of course his expressions and presence on stage makes him very photogenic. He always goes that extra mile pleasing the audience.

Eddie Guz is of course also a real crowd pleaser. His voice is a big part of The Carburetors distinctive sound.

You definitely need to know the “Rock on” sign when you’re at a Carburetors concert!

The limited access I had too moving freely around, made it hard getting any shots of Chris Nitro. But here is on of the few I managed to get.

Next time I’m shooting a concert, I really need a venue with a decent photo pit 🙂
