Orchestrated chaos

Torngat and Bell Orchestre were quite an experience. Instrumental music (apart from some wordless vocal addition by the Orchestre). I opted to take only a few pictures of this show. With everyone sitting in their pews it would have been disruptive of their viewing enjoyment to have me scurrying up and down the aisle, and I doubt my camera has the ISO to handle the low lighting. Nice acoustics from the high, vaulted ceiling, though - the wall behind the two Orchestre members in the picture below gives you an idea - it was way up there.



The I went to Babylon ... I caught the Black Actors' last song. Sounded good.



The Double Pumpers put on a brief but kicking set.



The Fucking Machines, back at full strength, put on a killer set.



The Million Dollar Marxists also put on an awesome show, which ended in complete chaos.



Pictures of said chaos to come!
  • Show reminder: Mighty Eagle Band and Diablo Red perform at Cafe DeKcuf. As far as I can tell, the third band on this bill is Hellbros, but I see a listing on punkottawa.com for The Grey, so who knows?

i did that once and felt like a total jerk! even at ISO 1600 and at f1.8, none of my photos really turned out... my photos from bluesfest are wonderful though.
