Live music - our gigging at the Drill Festival, Brighton

I've had a bit of a break from the Brighton music scene jn the last month or so but I wanted to get in some new bands before the end of this year and my new music afficionado Jon was heading to the Friday evening of the Drill Festival. With wristband admission to multiple venues I managed four bands at three venues ....

Bad Breeding at Audio

Sauna Youth at The Green Door Store

Lonelady at Concorde 2

I really enjoyed Savages.A great stage presence and powerful and tight sound.

This was the first outing for my new camera, a Fujifilm XE-2, and, to make it all more of an adventure, it was sporting a manual focus Pentax 50mm f1.7 lens which was easy enough to focus except for Savages where the particular back lighting from the stage made it all pretty tricky. I used that lens all night and it should have been the only one I took with me because I stuck with it because I was happy with the way it was working. I had however started the evening with a little Fujifilm 27mm autofocus lens - which I lost - I must have left it on the seating in Audio after changing it at the very start of the evening. Sadly no joy in calling the venue to see if somebody had handed in in.

These and other images are at my Brighton Live Music gallery.
