Jammin' with The D. This and the next were taken with normal camera mode. As you can see, they are plenty bright and close-up, but still blurry. I didn't know how the light would effect the shutter speed.
Nice point, JB. Reminding us that KG is the man.
Then I increased the shutter speed and got some really good shots. And the amount of light was indeed great for most of them. Not a whole lot going on in this one, though.
LOVE the look on Jack's face, there. Awesome. And that's Lee on stage on the right, sitting down! That was the main problem with the pit, getting a clear shot - lots of other peoples' heads in the way.
Awesome expression again, JB. And Lee - what the HELL is up with him?
Lee got up to do a song or dance to a song or something. Hell, I forget. I used the super-fake-zoom to get some close-ups but they were a little shaky.
Uh, whatever. Some kinda dance routine, I think.
Get outta here. Or. Kyle plays a TAYLOR.
Tenacious D... could be three? Plant a tree, just for Lee!
Jack is a nutbar. Exhibit A. I feel honored to have caught this expression on film.
Looks like he's pointing to Lee here. But let's take a minute to enjoy the awesomeness of the dragons on Jack's shirt, shall we?
So, the guys came out in front of this "bedroom" backdrop and did a slew of acoustic songs, but I knew they were touring with a band. They did this whole routine about Jack giving Kyle this "electric" guitar he made and how about Kyle was "going electric" or something. That eventually led to the big "reveal"...
They actually played this silly video that explained how The D met up with the guys in the band. That's Lucifer on lead guitar, Colonel Sanders on drums and Charlie Chaplin on bass. They all met in hell.
You tell 'em, JB. Colonel Sanders lurks in the shadows. If I had focused better, you could probably read that other guy's text message.
The stage setup was nice. Good lights. They're in hell.
Jack's getting a tad sweaty. The Colonel is rockin'.
JB finds The Pick Of Destiny! Colonel Sanders envies.
Not a great shot, but I like the pointing of the fingers.
So most of the night was a faithful re-enactment of the movie - Dave Grohl plays Satan in the film, but Lee gets the job on stage. And did a great job, at that. He also plays a cop (Car Chase City) and a mushroom (Papagenu), amongst other characters in the show.
I fucking love this picture, I only wish I hadn't cropped out his head. Lovely expression, right about to bust into some powerful note or something. He's a little damp, though. Good stuff.
