Live: Dan Mangan @ The Parish – Austin, TX

Dan Mangan @ The Parish - Austin, TX

You would think after driving 3 days straight, from Canada to Austin, TX, that Dan Mangan would be more fit to hit the bed than to hit the stage.  You would be wrong.  This Canadian didn’t drive all that way to disappoint.  Dan and his band put on an amazing show, complete with singalongs and a trip into the crowd. If you get the chance to grab his album, or catch them out on tour, I highly recommend it.

Thoughts and Shooting Notes:

Dan and his boys were a lot of fun to shoot.  Lots of movement, crowd interaction and great music.

The lighting for their set was a bit all over the place, but it was fairly easy to pick up on the patterns from song to song.  I shot with the Canon 5d mkII and the 24-70mm 2.8.  Aperture was pegged out at 2.8 for the entire set and I believe my shutter speed hung out somewhere around 1/160.
