The Phoenix Foundation at the Botanical Gardens

The general consensus was that there were fuckloads of people at the Botanical Gardens Soundshell this evening to see the Phoenix Foundation play. There's something quite special about live music outdoors, and there's always something special about the Phoenix Foundation. There aren't many bands that know how to build tension and really work a crowd - but these boys seldom disappoint. I tried out a few different settings on my camera as you'll see... unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of Richie - too many drums in the way!

Their second album should be out in April... just quietly, I've heard a few tracks, and it's sounding sublime.

Okay I've had some hints on improving these pictures so once I get a few spare hours I'll give it a try. And yes, I am the biggest fangirl ever ever. (For ever ever?)

Really? If you went to my school, I'm sure you'd know me as it was pretty small - SHC. Give me a hint?

Go Phoenix F! World domination is in your destiny! And no, I am not biased.

Great shots though. Wish I could have been there... :-(

Thanks! Yeah, it was awesome to see them outdoors, and better than the BDO set (although 'Sister Risk' at BDO was something else!) I guess you'll see them play soon enough - you're in Welly now, right?

Fantastic pics, Jess, thanks so much. Weren't they fantastic. What a mellow night. I really regretted not taking my camera. Did you take any pics of the crowd?

Hi Nelly, yeah I took some crowd shots, in particular one panorama that just wouldn't stop! Thanks.

Scribbles, that is very interesting. You write for Blink too? *puts on detective hat*
