The Immortalz hit the stage at Come and Take It Live with Ole Creepy, another kind of horror punk band from Austin. While the Immortal have the Universal Monsters kind of look, Ole Creepy have a more swampy look and lean into the green and white lighting.
For this show I thought shooting with 800 ISO color film pushed to 3200 ISO would saturate the colors used by Ole Creepy nicely. You’ll notice some soft focus on the Immortalz. The person who runs light at Come and Take It is also often the sound engineer. If he’s not given direction he likes a dark stage with minimal lighting which makes it hard to pull focus with a manual camera like the Pentax. Despite the focusing challenges, I liked the feeling captured.
