First gig of the year
Band of Horses at Brixton Academy – it’s good to be back.
Missed the Manic Street Preachers gig in January following a minor operation on my wrist and hadn’t realised how much I missed the rush of gig photography til tonight.
I felt the adrenaline as soon as I exited Brixton station, and the buzz just kept building through the night.
Even after all these years (15 and counting) I still get that buzz the moment the lights go down and the crowd go ‘Wooh!’
Of course, being a fan of Band of Horses music helped increase that feeling tonight, although I admit feeling a little miffed when told the band had requested no-one lean on the stage, as I was hoping to rest my elbows there to help my still healing wrist support my heavier than ever camera….
