Dirty Purchase

Venue: Swingin’ Hall, Sofia

Lens: Nikkor 85 mm f/1.8

Music: Doobie Brothers – Long train running (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnD0eVdHJfI)

This weekend I was at a birthday party in one of the live music clubs in the centre of Sofia and had the opportunity to take some photos of the band that happened to be playing. So I thought I’d share just a few shots as a yet another novelty in this blog. The band is called “Dirty Purchase”, which is actually a play of words with Bulgarian as the name sounds similar to the local expression with the approximate meaning of “Old Pricks”. They are actually not that old and have been around for the last 20 years or so even if they often change their band members. Dirty Purchase is a typical live club funk and soul band that often plays covers of more famous songs along with some original ones. So I quite enjoyed their performance and hopefully I have caught a bit of their energy on the photos even if it cannot possibly be the same.

Another way of capturing the moment is by recording a video, but instead I thought it makes for a fun photo.
The lens flares from the strong disco lights look like coming out of the trumpet.
