March 2, 2008 :: Available Light. The Young Antiques @ Sweetwater Live

Sometimes I forget the camera with the good lenses and the ability to capture crispness (and not blurriness) in low light. Nearly all rock clubs have low or variably unpredictable light. And, as evidenced above, my little pocket standby Casio can't cope.

It is pretty. But poor Justin (left) is a ghostly blur, Blake (middle) looks slightly like he's wearing cropped pants, and other Blake (right) is a headless bolt of lightening.

Usually things only start to look like this after a couple "fussy bitches" (that's Stoli Vanilla and Diet Coke, as coined by our friends at the Yacht Club). But I was driving last night, so all vertigo was in-camera.
