Brights Eyes, led by singer/ songwriter Conor Oberst, delivered a spirited performance at Radio City Music Hall with a beefed up the stage production to match the energy of their first album in four years, The People’s Key.

Photographer’s Notes

The elaborate stage setup for Bright Eyes featured a wide-screen video backdrop, eight tall towers for rotating lights, illuminated fabric canopies like minibandshells, glowing mic stands and blasts of strobes and spotlights. All very cool aesthetically, but surprisingly dark overall. Although Conor Oberst was standing at center stage, he was often back light or in shadow. My exposure was around 1/200 and f/2.8 at ISO 3200.
