SPRED and Hammerdog at Kirkland's The Lime

I had a great time hanging out at Kirkland's The Lime on Friday shooting photos of SPRED and Hammerdog. A friend of mine asked if I'd be interested in shooting the show. I've been meaning to check out Kirkland, but I wasn't sure what it'd be like getting there on a Friday night. When I learned that both bands play a wide variety of 70s and 80s rock, I was sold.

It was awesome getting to see two local bands and their fans, friends, and neighbors celebrating the end of a work week with classics like Judas Priest, U2, the Cars, etc. It was my first time seeing these bands play, but I got the sense that they have a blast getting up on stage and sharing their music. I also got the sense that they are firmly anchored in the community. Cool stuff.

I've added a few photos below from both sets.

 SPRED and Hammerdog at The Lime, 22 September 2017. (I keep looking at this picture. I think a coincidental series of parallel lines in the center give it the appearance of being stitched together, perhaps reinforced by the difference in lighting. I did add a graduated filter to increase the exposure a little on the left, but I thought that about the photo before that. I also wonder if the Fujifilm processor had a little difficulty rendering the photo.)
