With whaling guitar solos and a thick groove, local Austin outfit The Daze brought tons of energy to The Parish last Thursday night.
These young guys definitely have some old souls. With lots of energy, and a great stage presence, The Daze add a modern twist to some classic blues riffs and psychedelic rock.
The Daze’s set was a lot of fun to shoot, and these guys, especially lead vocalist/guitarist Evan Butts, brought a lot of energy to the stage.
The lighting on Evan was quite good, however, the other guys were pretty much left in the dark for most of the set. There were plenty of the usual blue and red washes to work around.
The stage at The Parish is relatively low, so it’s easy to get around the usual monitor issues. There were several other photographers at this show, but it was fairly easy to work around the crowd and get full access to the stage.
I shot this set with the Canon 5d Mark II and 24-70mm 2.8L.
