Saosin: Live in Manila

Saosin in Manila 6

Saosin just had their concert in Manila on the evening of January 22 (a Friday night) at A Venue Hall in Makati. Although the size of the venue was just right for the expected audience that will be coming in, the acoustics could have been improved more. Typecast, a local rock band, opened for Saosin.

After Typecast’s set, the familiar white curtain covered the entire stage. Some ads from Globe were projected on the white curtain. After a few minutes, Saosin’s logo (includes the name of the band and the beetle) was projected on the curtain. An animation of the beetles were projected as well while Saosin is preparing. When the band was ready to rock A Venue Hall, the white curtain dropped on the stage.

It has been a long time since I’ve been in a mosh pit. 😀

It was actually a big challenge for me to take photos there especially that there are a lot of taller people in front of me. I made use of the live view of Canon EOS 500D and I switched to manual focus instead of using the auto-focus feature.
