If you are in Eugene tonight or Portland tomorrow night, you won’t want to miss Dawn Ray’d from England. A unique black metal band that incorporates a violin (and does not have keyboards or bass like most black metal bands), Dawn Ray’d hits a sweet spot for me.

Funny story… I was on my way to the show (more than an hour from my home), and I started to get hungry as I was going through Jacksonville. I pulled over to eat at La Fiesta, mostly because I know a couple people that work there. Neither was working, and the place was almost empty. I was seated at a table next to a few metalheads who I didn’t recognize. Then I overheard them talking with British accents, and I realized that they are probably the band I’m going to see even though we are 30+ minutes from the venue. Small world or weird coincidence?

Clementine explained to the audience in Grants Pass that Zepparella never gets to celebrate Gretchen’s birthday, as it falls between Christmas and New Years when they aren’t playing any shows, so we had an early celebration at the Rogue Theatre.

This past Friday night I had the chance to see Zepparella for about the tenth time.

The show was my first chance to test out my new Nikon Z 50 in a concert setting. I had several reservations about going with a mirrorless camera. Those included a drop in quality for concert and sports shooting, short battery life, and the need for an adapter with non Z lenses. I didn’t buy the FTZ adapter, to not have to deal with the added weight, so that wasn’t a problem. After taking over 350 photos on a single charge the battery is still showing “full” so battery life doesn’t seem to be an issue. And even though I brought the wrong lens (I mistakenly grabbed the 50-250mm f/6.3 instead of the 50mm f/1.8), the pictures still came out OK. With a 1.8 lens I think concert photos will be really nice. At f/6.3 the ISO is quite a bit higher and the shutter speed is a bit slower than it will be when I use a faster lens in the future.
