Accidentally found myself at a Punk concert last Friday night at the National Music Centre. Got my dates mixed up. I was expecting to go to a GlobalFest hip hop concert. Instead I stumbled upon Calgary's underground Punk scene and the first concert for the Garbage Daze Festival.
Since I was there, I took photos anyway. The venue was dark. The music was grungy. Lyrics meant nothing, because you couldn't make out what they were yelling. I guess it's a great way to get your rage out. The audience, in black denim and chains, was actually more interesting than the musicians, but I stayed to shoot a couple bands; Strangled and Slurs. Then my left eardrum started buzzing; my indicator that the sound was too loud for me. It was time to leave.
So I set my camera to auto AV/TV and let the camera choose the ISO -- for natural grunge.
