May 21, 2009 – Just a few shots of Attracted to Gods, who opened up for Atmosphere on the “When God Gives You Ugly Tour.”
I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the light show Attracted to Gods received, thanks to the tour's lighting director. The venue where the guys performed, the Pageant, has a great lighting setup, but all too often opening acts receive a very understated treatment with the house lights. So, when Attracted by Gods was graced with a very deep and atmospheric set, I took a little more notice and set out to work during the first three songs.
Before this show, I did a promo shoot with the band, so it was fun to see them in action on stage.
Large speaker monitors at the front of the stage limited the shooting angles, a fact made more tricky due to the fact that there wasn't a lot of room for them to move around (especially for drummer Brian).
I shot this set primarily with the Niko 24-70mm f/2.8 and Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8.
