First Gig Of 2014 - Max Raptor
2013 was a slow year for me gig-wise. I was so busy doing other stuff I only managed to go and see a couple of bands which is, frankly, a bit pathetic of me. So, this year I have decided to make a concerted effort to get out there and see some cool bands, starting with the tremendous Max Raptor.
I was sent Max Raptor's debut EP 'Portraits' to review a couple of years back, and loved it on first listen (and still do), and in 2012 my eldest son was lucky enough to be in the video for their track "Carolina" (ok, I know, I mention it any chance I get!), so it was nice to see them back at Norwich.
Was a great gig (even if I did end up with a swollen forehead from an accidental mosh-pit clash of heads), Max Raptor are an amazing, high-energy live band. I definitely recommend, nay, insist you go see them if you get the chance!
I went for a gritty Black & White style for most of the photos. Mainly because it suits the style of the band, but it's also pretty much all I shot back when I was studying photography in college, so...any excuse and I go B&W :D
