The National at the Neptune

Over the last 13 years I have had the wonderful opportunity to watch The National’s rise through fame. From the Crocodile to Marymoor Park The National’s path is nothing but one of steady perseverance.  The last few years I have had the opportunity to shoot them each time they have passed through Seattle. You can see some of my images of from their shows at The ShowBox and Marymoor Park.

The one thing about The National is they have a great fan base and those fans turn out.  The Neptune was packed two night in a row for great shows.

The bad thing about the Neptune is the lighting (STG seems to have their head up their ass).  It is nothing but a wash in solid red or solid blue while artists perform and then changes to a nice moody high contrast white light between songs. This means that I end up shooting more between songs than the performance.

Either way here is the first round of photos from their show on December 1st 2011. Another set of images will be posted next week.
