Back to good old Leeds Academy! This one was quite an exciting one, as like Alien Ant Farm, Bowling For Soup were another band I liked way back in the skateboarding days! I’m pretty sure if someone told me back then one day you’d be shooting a load of these bands your listening too when you grow up, I’d be wondering what they had been drinking? But sure enough it’s life is unpredictable, much like Bowling For Soup as I found out on the night.
I was also down to shoot support bands Lacey and The Dollyrots, neither of which I knew much about, but they were still great to shoot and I managed to get some ok shots of them even in tricky lighting. As for Bowling For Soup, that’s another story. The stage set up was incredible! It had it’s own dart board, toilets, beer barrels and bar to set up a makeshift pub, and the lighting was pretty cool too, with their own rotating lights flashing all over the place. The band are pretty fun to shoot too so it turned out to be a really fun show regardless of the random break due to technical faults early on.
Here’s a few shots from the show as always!
