Music Photography: Liverpool Music Week 2015
We were back for our second year photographing at Liverpool Music Week. Last year we photographed post rock outfit Mogwai at the Camp and Furnace. This year we were able to cover more of the shows held across various venues in Liverpool. The first show was Richard Hawley performing live at The Dome (Grand Central Hall). Tina covered this show as Simon was just down the road at the Liverpool Echo Arena to photograph Joe Bonamassa.

Next up on Sunday was Health at Liverpool’s iconic The Kazimier. The venue is set for closure in early 2016. The Los Angeles band, making their 5th visit to the city, played to a sold out crowd.

On Tuesday Godspeed You! Black Emperor performed at Camp and Furnace. Godspeed played for 2 hours on a dimly lit stage with their usual film projection overlay. It was a fantastic performance, if somewhat challenging conditions for photography!

On Wednesday we were both at the wonderful surroundings of The Scandinavian Church for an intimate performance from Texan Josh T. Pearson. The Gustav Adolph Kyrka made for a fantastic venue for Josh.
