Authority Zero

June 05, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I'll be perfectly honest with you, until the last time the Calgary Beer Core brought in Authority Zero to play a show last autumn, I'd never even heard of the group.  Evidently I had been living under a rock, judging by the size and frenetic energy of the crowd that showed up to see them play.  I was pleasantly surprised not only by the energy of the crowd but the band itself, so when the Beer Core brought the group in again last month, I was really looking forward to photographing the event once again.

The entire evening did not disappoint with local heavy-weights Black Earth, The Press Gang  & Torches to Triggers opening the night, but the show really got started once Authority Zero took the stage, bringing everyone to the front of the room for a solid hour and a half of music.  Everyone from the youngest punks to the sweetest elderly lady, who out-danced and out-smiled everyone in the room and put us all to shame.

I have been slowly dialing in my Tamron 11-16mm 2.8 lens, and while it's not quite adjusted the way I would like yet, it's sure fun to play with at gigs.  I shot the entire evening with my current trifecta including the new Tamron, my trusty go-to Nikon 35mm 1.8 and the 55-200 mm 3.5-5.6, which handles surprisingly well at gigs.

Here's a few of my favourite shots from the evening.
