Temptrix 13 and Pollen played the first monthly Nite School event held at Cheer Up Charlies since the pandemic closed everything down. This was also Temptrix 13’s second show. Temptrix 13 is an electronic shoe gaze act, and Pollen is a kind of energetic dark wave band in hipster clothing.
This was the first show I shot at Cheer Up Charlies. Overall, I’m happy with the way the photos came out, but I had to trash photos I took of other shows there. While they were technically good, the way the stage is setup with that neon happy face and well-lit, almost white rock background, they make the shows look kinda lame. Especially the wide shots.
