Flogging Molly @ House Of Blues Los Angeles

Flogging Molly live concert House Of Blues Los Angeles (Justin Gill)

Nearly exactly one year since I shot Flogging Molly on tour in Chicago, I managed to shoot their set at House Of Blues on Sunset Strip for their 8th annual “Green 17” tour.  And I gotta say, Los Angeles House Of Blues may be one of my new all-time favorite venues.  At least with it’s rustic, pub appeal, it seemed a very fitting venue for Flogging Molly’s brand of celtic punk.  With fantastic lighting, to boot!

PHOTOGRAPHER’S NOTES:  As I had mentioned, may very well be my new favorite venue.  I was shooting very comfortably at 1600 ISO, could probably have even dropped it to 800 at times.  There were plenty of angles to shoot from, albeit being very crowded.  I should also mention that the 17-50 2.8 dominated for this performance.  Although I used a 85 1.8 at times, the 17-50 was great at capturing the ensemble.  There was a lot of microphone sharing, and with 7 musicians on the stage, it was easy to get several in one frame.
