The alternative Royal Wedding party!

I was invited to Blizzfest after I’d been to the Black Rose gig the week before, so headed over to Watercress Harry’s in Kettering for an afternoon and evening of rock and metal.

Although I didn’t catch all of the bands, here are the ones I did catch, starting with Rustbucket – who perform their own compositions. I don’t like to use flash at gigs as I feel it gives an unnatural look to the shots, but I had to use fill in flash here to compensate for the backlight:

The second band were Spiral Dive, and the lighting had slightly improved:

The last band of the evening was the Ozzy Osbourne tribute band, Blizzard of Ozz. The guitarist may look somewhat familiar from my previous post as he’s also in Black Rose. Some of the images are a little noisy, as I was trying to avoid using flash in the poor light.

And finally, my two favourite images from the day – I just liked the lighting
