Heathen Apostles at The Echo | Rolleiflex with BW Film

Heathen Apostles | The Echo
February 20, 2016

Heathen Apostles
Mather Louth
Chopper Franklin
Thomas Lorioux
Stevyn Grey
Luis Mascaro

Lee first introduced me to Heathen Apostles at the Cafe Nela show on February 13. He knew I would love them and he is friends with Mather. Well, he was right. I love them! And it turns out we license their music through Rescue Records. Heathen Apostles played an amazing set at Cafe Nela, absolutely amazing. But I was without camera and so I wanted to go see them again at The Echo.

Here are the 6 frames out of 12 that were shot on my Rolleiflex camera. Enjoy!

More to come because I have 12 undeveloped frames that I shot on my Rollei. I also had my CD autographed by the band! Yay! Thank you!

The Moon is magical.
To the right is Mars.

This is the best I could do with a 16-85mm lens. My 28-200mm lens won't zoom anymore.
