I had a walk from the car to the venue and fired a few shots off while walking there is always plenty to shoot in Blackpool.
Bootleg is a subterranean bar with a nice vibe. It has various areas including bar area with tables, pool table, comfortable chairs and the stage area. The stage is low and relatively small. There is no pit or barriers for photographers.
The sound at the venue was good unfortunately the lighting was terrible. As ever I worked with what I had.
The Surrenders were the first band on and payed a great set. I had not heard this band before but I really enjoyed their set.
No Hot Ashes were next to take to the stage and they didn't disappoint. The size of the stage restricted the dancing and on stage antics. I was pleased that they sounded as good as I remembered and the crowd seemed to enjoy the set as much as I did.
Unfortunately it was 23:45 when they finished which resulted in me doing a cinderella style sprint for the door.
Thanks to the bands for entertaining me
Thanks to MR Peeps for the invite
Cheers to Bootleg Blackpool for the invite.
