The Boomtown Rats

Some nights you leave a gig with the wonderful feeling that you got some great shots and you heard some fantastic music.  Last night at the Lemon Grove was definitely one of those nights!

As always on The Unplugged Blog, I'm going to share a few of my favourite images hot from the editing desk.  Normally I'd only share one image from each artist but I have so many great images you all deserve to see two!

First up was the exceptionally talented and lovely Polly Money.

I was lucky enough to grab a quick chat with Polly back stage with Steve from MusicMuso so expect to hear more about Polly on the MusicMuso website really soon.

Next up were Exeter's top steam punk band The Mysterious Freakshow.  They were colourful, loud and energetic.  Definitely a band I will keep an eye out for on the local gig scene.

The main act of the night was of course The Boomtown Rats, and from the moment that Sir Bob bounded on to the stage the place erupted.  Now, there is a man that can work the crowd.  I really love shooting a band that can work the crowd.  There is always so much to shoot!

For those of you that follow my Twitter account you know that I like to live tweet images straight from venue (thanks to Nikon D750, a Nexus tablet, and a phone signal).  I tweeted this image last night but just had stick it on my blog as well.  I just loved the way he played up to the camera for me.  He got a big thumbs up back from me!

And now the star of the show, Bob Geldof, or as I now think of him, rock God!

It was a real pleasure shooting all three acts last night.  I've still got a whole stack of images to get through and edit, but I just wanted to share these with you right now!  Expect a full write up of the gig really soon over at MusicMuso.  

In the meantime I'm going to carry on listening to new Pink Floyd album and I'll see you next time on The Unplugged Blog!
