Mike Butler, Emily Reid, and Runaway Angel @ Supermarket – April 9, 2014

The first time I saw Mike Butler play was at the Horseshoe Tavern back on December 9, 2013. He came across as being a very likeable, fun-loving performer. So, I made my first ever trip to Supermarket on Wednesday, April 9 to check out another one of his gigs. The country music showcase also featured Emily Reid in the middle slot, and Runaway Angel closing out the proceedings.

NOTES:
-I once again overstepped my bounds and talked to the sound guy regarding the lighting (will I never learn my lesson? haha). In the end, I had plenty of light to get some good shots.
-I shot the first two acts at ISO 2500. It wasn’t until Runaway Angel was about to hit the stage that realized I could take it down to ISO 1600. Still, I don’t think image noise is much of an issue here, even at ISO 2500. The point is, don’t fall asleep at the wheel!
