Live: The Wooden Birds @ The Parish – Austin, TX

The Wooden Birds @ The Parish - Austin, TX

Andrew Kenny is better known as the brains and voice behind indie favorites the American Analog Set.  I was fortunate enough to catch his current project, The Wooden Birds, last week at The Parish in downtown Austin.

The Wooden Birds performed a very polished set as they kicked off their North American tour in Austin with supporting act Dan Mangan.  These guys (and gal) are all seasoned vets of the indie scene, including guitarist Matt Pond, drummer Sean Haskins and guitarist Leslie Sissons.

Thoughts & Shooting Notes

Like the other sets of the night, this one was also full of red and magenta washes, and was fairly dark for the most part.  I shot with the Canon 5d mark II, and the Canon 24-70mm 2.8L.  These guys are pretty laid back live, so there wasn’t a ton of movement to content with, which allowed me to focus on timing the lighting.
