★ What do you call a Canon 5D out in the rain?

Head Of State

A Canon Fried D! Get it!

Yesterday I went out to Newcastle Uni for the annual Beach Party do, and it rained like a mo-fo. It had been raining on and off all day, and I was really trying my hardest not to go out there but I hadn’t seen two of my favourite local bands in a while so I figured I would brave it and use the comp ticket anyway.

First up was Head Of State, my mates band, and the weather was holding out well enough with only a couple of little showers before they went on. Head Of States set was probably their best I’ve ever seen, the boys were on fire cranking out a couple of newer songs along with a few of the better known ones. And to mix it up they played a cover of Purple Rain, so so very different to the original and actually really rock.

Anyway here’s a bunch of photos I shot of the boys during their set……before Here Come The Birds (photos coming later on), and the downpour that drowned my Canon 5D.
