Live music photography is challenging even when conditions are ideal. And then there are times when you just put the camera back in the bag and enjoy the gig. When I saw Lexington, Kentucky's Ancient Warfare at Das Haus Friday night as part of Secret Stages Music Discovery Festival, I all but gave up trying to document the night. The already dark as a cave stage was drenched in blue LED light, and there was a curious hanger dangling from the ceiling.
Anyway, the band captured my attention with their track 'Darlin'. And their live act, didn't disappoint, even if the lighting wasn't ideal. Once I catch my breath after processing all the photos from the festival, I'll circle back around and give the band's LP, The Pale Horse, a long listen. Find 'Darlin' and a few sketchy photos from the band's performance below.
