Usually when people write about great gigs they mean gigs that were packed to the rafters with a crowd that are as ravenous as the band throwing themselves about on the stage. The reality is that for most underground artists gigs aren’t like that. You’re playing to the other bands, the promoter, the bar staff and if you’re really lucky your other half who isn’t sick of your music yet.

Transcension ended up on one of those shows on Sunday night at Nice n Sleazy and still went for it as if the room had an audience who had been waiting weeks to see them. More bands should try and play like this all the time. Or at least be as frighteningly tight as these guys are.

Sleazy’s is usually a struggle shoot, but somehow I managed to find the magic settings between camera and flash to allow me to get the 3.5 18-200mm out. The slight distortion of the lens at full angle has a really cool effect on photos that I can’t seem to get enough of.
