Subterranean Howl at Kelly's Olympian

My first live show in Portland, Oregon. Bad lighting, too-loud, cramped quarters... In other words, pretty much the best of the live music scene in Portland! I kind of love this town!

I love concert photography so when I was invited by a friend to catch Subterranean Howl at Kelly's Olympian in downtown Portland I was definitely up for it. I tried my luck with the camera in this intimate and extremely dark venue. 

Next time I may bring out the Speedlight for a few shots but this time, with only a couple of exceptions, I just shot in the dark with my 35mm f/1.8 wide open and hoped for the best. I was surprisingly pleased with the results.

Oh, and I thought the band was quite good, too. Much better than the size of the audience would indicate...
