Acoustic Swamp Rock at Fado

My good friends in The Swamp Bats performed an excellent acoustic set at Fado Irish Pub in Austin last Friday. There is just something extra special about a performance with primarily acoustic instruments. The standup bass, cajon drum, acoustic guitar, and mouth harp all combine for a more simple yet deep and sophisticated sound. The intimate atmosphere at Fado contributes to a wonderful experience with the band and their music.

I usually photograph concerts with a 50mm equivalent lens on my Fujifilm camera. This time I decided to try something a little different. I knew I'd be able to move around the band up close and freely so I took my 24mm equivalent lens for a more wide angle view than I typically use. Here are some of my favorite shots of the night.
