Broke.

Broken Blog Cake.
Brokeblog Mountain.

Whatever, it’s broken.

Upgrading to WordPress 2.5 broke the blog. Some quick thinking fixed it a bit but it still doesn’t work with the theme I designed for it, so I’m using the pretty deadly-looking 5ThirtyOne v2 for the moment. It isn’t a perfect fit, but I’ve been working on a site redesign for a couple of weeks already and it should be ready soon, so I’ll be sticking with this until then.

Lupe Fiasco at Tripod

Lupe Fiasco at Tripod last night.

Great gig, and I’m really happy with the shots.
He has a great stage presence and did not stop moving around, which is both a blessing and a curse for photographers.

A lot of the time, I’d only just get a chance to focus on him before he started jumping around again, and plenty of my shots were blurred by him moving, but I would have had a much harder time getting a good few different angles in the allowed three songs, if he had stayed in the one spot the whole time.

They turned out well anyway, though I’m still kind of shocked I managed to take 360 shots in three songs.

And my favourite of the show:

As usual, there’s more on flickr

Gran Casino – UCD B&L Ball

For all the people arriving here while searching for Gran Casino (after they won the UCD Battle of the Bands last night and were interviewed on Phantom FM this morning), here’s them playing the UCD B&L (Business & Legal) Ball last month.

As usual, there’s more after the jump and on flickr.

If you’re new here you’ll have missed the previous Gran Casino-related posts here, here and here.

Shots from UCD Battle of the Bands coming soon. Don’t forget to subscribe if you haven’t already.

The Coronas headlining NSMA UCD Heat

The Coronas headlined the National Student Music Awards Dublin Heat in UCD on Thursday night.

I’ll have photos of the competing student bands soon, as, I imagine, will Nay.

More shots after the jump, and on flickr

UCD by Night

Valentine’s night in UCD.
Was bored waiting for Delerentos to start.
