What’s up, everyone! We haven’t had any band related photos on the blog for a while and that’s probably because we haven’t shot any since we did Boris Yeltsin’s promo photos for “On A Wire” last year. So, needless to say, this post is loooooong overdue.
This is Lowlife. They are a fantastic hardcore band with members based out of Joplin, MO, Webb City, MO, and Tulsa, OK. It’s safe to say that after getting to see these dudes last night, they’re now my favorite regional hardcore band. My band, Bad Lungs, played a show in Springfield last night at the Outland Ballroom with a bunch of other rad bands. We are limited on space for traveling to shows, so we had to leave some gear at home. The guys in Lowlife were beyond generous and not only loaned us gear, but every band on the tour package as well, which really helped those bands out, but also made the show run that much smoother. Really, it’s needless to say, but good dudes; backed hard.
Anyways, my point is, taking photos of them was the very least I could do for their generosity with us. I am stoked to both play more shows with and shoot more photos of these dudes live. It would be a lie to say I didn’t have some issues since it had been so long since I last shot a show. I probably should have brought my Alien Bees to just nuke the room, but I only brought my single speedlite. The Outland isn’t the best place to shoot a hardcore band since the stage is kinda high, so to get back to my point, I am stoked to shoot these dudes at a show that’s floor level. Soon enough!
Anyways, these guys are all exceptionally rad humans and they are a straight killer band. If you dig hardcore, especially that of a much more pissed off nature, then look no further than Lowlife. You won’t be disappointed. Just click the links below for their band and mine if you are interested.
Also, my apologies to Joey and Caleb. The side of the stage they were on was a bit congested and made it harder for me to get shots of them, so there just aren’t as many of those two as there are of the other dudes. I will make up for it next time!
Take care and talk soon!
