Live Concert Photos: Ingrid Michaelson

Ingrid Michaelson Madison WI live concert photography Capitol Theater

Ingrid Michaelson‘s most recent Madison concert was massive.  The red haired pop-inspired indie songstress sold out the Capitol Theatre for her April 14 show, and every last pair of eyes and ears in the building belonged completely to her as she performed an inspired set for her fans.

If you weren’t able to snatch up a pair of tickets before they were all gone (and heck, even if you were), don’t miss photographer Darren Lee‘s gorgeous shots from the evening after the jump.

Live Music Photo Tuesdays – All That Remains

w 4447b

Good News: There was a 3-foot pit, the space between the stage and the barricade, for the “bouncers” and the media, which includes photographers like me.  Bad News: When All That Remains (ATR) came on stage, the pit got smaller and smaller as the barricade got pushed closer and closer to the stage.  Saying ATR amped up the crowd would be an understatement.  Early on, vocalist Phil Labonte sounded a little disappointed as he did not see a mosh pit being generated Friday night at The Annex.  To the crowds’ defense, it was jam packed.  I mean if the person next to you decided to sway, you swayed too, regardless if you wanted to or not.  It was TIGHT!!!  Pun Intended. 

Luna Mortis opened the night up with songs from their newly released album, The Absence.  Based in Madison, the band was formed in 2001 in Monroe and went by the name The Ottoman Empire.  They later changed their name in 2008 to Luna Mortis.

Dirge Within followed.  Before the set, vocalist Jeremy “Jerms” Genske warned me that he likes to jump back and forth from the stage to the barricade.  I now see why.  The crowd loved the up-close and personal touch.  Rumor has it that a day before the show on May 14th, Dirge Within inked a deal with E1 Music (formerly Koch Records).  If it is true, congrats! 

Another great show.  Thanks for looking.
