Adam Young's Owl City put on an energetic performance to a sold-out crowd at Terminal 5 this weekend. While Young's electropop borders on the schmaltzy, the harmless teenybopper tunes made for a pretty enjoyable show as did his bouncy, unrehearsed stage presence. Full disclosure: yes, I confess that I like Fireflies. Paper Route and LIGHTS warmed up the crowds with solid sets of their own.
I covered the show for Time Out (see this post on their site). Shooting the concert was a pleasant experience since the crowd was separated from the stage by a comfortably-sized pit. I shot the show using mostly Canon's 85mm 1.2 and 24-70mm 2.8 lenses. The lighting was tricky and no flash was allowed, but overall I was happy with what I got.
Read on for more pictures. The full set of pictures from the shows are available in my concert collection on flickr.
