Last Thursday I finally got to see one of my favoritest people in the world, Topu, play with his band Live Footage. The show started with an opening set by Beartrap Mind, who I really enjoyed. As for Live Footage, I had heard their CD before and loved it, but it’s a totally different experience seeing them live. I joked to Topu after the show that they are the most multi-tasking musicians I have ever seen: Topu with his electric cello and a myriad of foot pedals, and drummer Mike Thies, who would occasionally tuck one of his drumsticks under his arm, and start playing the keyboard, all while literally never missing a beat. It was amazing hearing these tracks I’d heard so many times on CD performed live, and to be honest, if I didn’t see and hear the songs coming together right in front of me, I almost wouldn’t believe it.
Nerdy picture talk: the cafe was really dark, so I decided to throw my camera up to ISO 3200, which I almost never use. The pics certainly show the noise, but at least in my mind, it is a little less offensive in B&W, which is why I converted most of the shots in Lightroom to B&W.
