Project 365 #169: 180609 Somebody PLEASE Pick Up That Phone!

I was out tonight shooting a gig at school. It was a night for some of our enormously talented youngsters to show off.


School concerts have changed a bit. This one was eight rock and pop bands, all fully live music, each playing a four song set.


It was long, it was hot and it was LOUD! The title of the pic is inspired by the fact that my ears are ringing - oh dear.


I'd love to share some of the photos with you, but good procedures quite rightly prohibit me from doing that without a million signatures in blood, so soak up the ambience with this nice on stage microphone and some very blurry audience members!

    A great shot. I hope your ears have recovered.

    The right one is fine. The left one is still ringing a little. :)

    Hi, great picture. I can just image that's what a singer sees, and the crowd looks like they're eagerly anticipating the show (at least blurredly).

    I was wondering if I could use it for my website? It's for an indie music label that I'm just starting out. It's and my email is Please contact me if you're interested, otherwise no prob.

    Awesome Picture! I'm going to be using it for an EdTech Open Mic Smackdown in my school district - with attribution of course!
