CHSQ - Walking on Cars

Day 2 of CHSQ was headlined by Walking on Cars; a southern band who have been getting bigger every time I hear about them, as they recently played a sold out Limelight to about 600 people, they then went on to support slot at last years Belsonic; so it's great to see them make the jump to headline act.

They were supported by a local band; Emerald Armada. A band who I like to refer to as the Irish 'Mumford & Sons' with their lead singers vocal style and folk style of music. But it was another great sight to see the guys play one of the bigger venues, especially in their home town.

Walking on Cars were vocally on good form, however visually it wasn't a great show for us photographers. The lead singer is very active in his movements, with him generally moving left, right and then into the center. He also has a lot of hand and body movements which I think is great for getting a variety of shots. However, he was wearing a hat and that was covered by a hood, so it proved difficult to get any light on his face.

This resulted in me just occasionally spraying the shutter button and praying I caught something. I did get some shots of his face with a little bit of light, but I still can't understand why he kept the hat and hood combo on. Bloody musicians.
