Of Monsters and Men, Highasakite @ Massey Hall – May 4, 2015

Icelandic folk-pop band Of Monsters and Men played Massey Hall on Monday, May 4. Opening the show was Norwegian indie-pop band Highasakite. This was my first time shooting at Massey Hall. It’s a regal, 100+ year-old venue, but being relegated to the side aisle (which was a million miles away from the stage) made it tough to get any standout shots, even with a 70-200mm lens and a monopod for extra stability. Still, it was good to work a new venue, and I do think I got some decent photos of each band. I shot this on assignment for A Music Blog Yea? You can see the full set of pictures (coupled with a nice review) right here.
