The Carburetors @ John Dee 16.05.2015

Yet again I had the pleasure of shooting The Carburetors the night before the Norwegian national day! This time with the Norwegian Revolver Avenue and the German V8Wankers as support. Revolver Avenue really surprised me, playing some great songs with real confidence for such a “young” band (First EP released in 2011). Unfortunately for the support bands, the lighting was not in their favor for getting great shots. The best light is usually “saved” for the main band. The band members have no, or very little front light, and a bucket load of back lighting. So I decided to enjoy the music (And a cold beer), leaving me only with this one keeper of Nils Alex Rama Engeness from Revolver Avenue.

Usually I’m packed with photo equipment (Almost to the point of needing a Sherpa and pack donkeys). But this time I traveled light, only with a mirrorless camera (Fujifilm XT-1) and the new Fujinon 16-55 2.8 lens. And i must say I’m highly impressed with this combo. I didn’t know what to expect from this camera in these low light and fast-moving situation. But hey, this little camera really performs. Both the high ISO capabilities, and the focusing was really great. The focus off course is not on par with my Nikon D800, but it was more than sufficient. For those with photo interest, I placed the Exif data under all the shots, so you can see the shooting data. Everything was shot in full manual mode.

Next up was the V8Wankers. Their a band originating from Offenbach in Germany, and was formed back in 2000. The 15 years of experience as a band really shows, and like The Carburetors, they’re also a bunch of real crowd pleaser’s. I highly recommend to see them live if you get the opportunity. Remember to check out their new album “Harden the Fuck up’!!

I’ve waited in anticipation for a while to hear some of the new songs from The Carburetors. Well, the audience didn’t go empty-handed home. Check out the concert playlist!

I’m so looking forward to the release of the new album (And maybe a spot in the photo pit at the release concert????)
The new songs I’ve heard so far sounds awesome!
