The Get Up Kids + Straight Lines – Camden Underworld

On Wednesday I headed to London to see my favourite band of all time, The Get Up Kids. Having seen the band many times before (and been lucky enough to photograph them a few times as well) I was excited at not only hearing their new material, but also getting some pictures of them in a small venue. Despite having a photopass and being allowed to photograph from the side of the stage, I decided to take my place in the front row of the crowd, so I could get some closer pictures of the band. (I also interviewed Matt from The Get Up Kids on the phone for my website, read here.

Before The Get Up Kids were Straight Lines, who I photographed earlier this year when they supported Inme at Norwich Waterfront. Straight Lines are a really solid Welsh rock band, with a pop edge, and a good choice of support for The Get Up Kids. Having their drummer down the from of the stage helped me get pictures of him (everyone knows I like taking pictures of drummers).

The Get Up Kids played for 90 minutes, but I just took pictures for the first three songs, and then enjoyed the rest of their set. I narrowed my favourite pictures down, but there are still quite a few here. ISO between 800 and 1250, flash on 1/32th power.
