Hightime Rebellion at Provoke! in The Garage #9


Hightime Rebellion
If It's Too Loud, You're Too Old! 

One day I got this broadcast message (BM) from my friend (I don't usually read BM's unless it's no more than one screen long), it says "Provoke! in The Garage #9, Jum'at, 21 Oktober jam 4 sore di kantor Provoke! Jl. Panglima Polim X no.16 Jakarta Selatan. Menampilkan Angsa dan Serigala dan Hightime Rebellion."  This message catches my attention because oe of the bands that'll be performing, Hightime Rebellion.

I watched and knew Hightime Rebellion for the first time in April in an event called "Potluck
Minimaliste" and one of the band performing was Hightime Rebellion.  When I arrived, they were already playing and it instantly catches my ear.  Miyane's high pitched voice and the guitar tunes really sound good to my ears.  Because I was late, I didn't get to enjoy their whole performance and I was keen to watch their performance again.  That broadcast message answered my prayer.

The gig was held by Provoke! magazine in the garage of their office.  It is located in Blok M district, South Jakarta.  Their neighbors were regular houses, not offices nor shops so I was quite surprised the neighbor tolerated the loud noises coming from this place.  Considering this event is in its ninth edition, I guess they didn't mind at all.  Here are some photos from their performance on this gig.

Note:
Since the gig was held in a garage, not much space is available for me to shoot around.  I had to find the correct spot so I could shoot the drummer in the back.  The lighting was also quite limited apparently, luckily my friend warned me first that there won't be much light available, so I brought my trusty 85 f1.2 to do the job.  At apperture 1.2 and ISO1600 I could get 1/250 shutter speed.

Equipment Used:
-Canon 5D
-Canon 85mm f1.2
