A Look at Detour Festival 2007

If you were Downtown over the weekend you probably know by now that Saturday brought the second LA Weekly Detour Festival to the Civic Center, where four stages were set up in the blocks around City Hall. A packed lineup had music running from noon to midnight.

A particular pleasure for me was hanging out at the City Hall East stage and getting to see the bands with the Triforium in the background. After long seeing it dark it was great to see the piece spilling its light onto a crowd.

So what did you all think? Who went, and who'd you like?

Ed and my photos can be found in this Detour 2007 photo essay. After the jump, a couple favorite shots.

Update (2pm): Ed's shots are now added into the photo essay.

Satellite Party

The Triforium in all its glory, behind Perry Farrell during the Satellite Party set.


I have no idea how this shot of Justice came out so well. They were basically unlit for large chunks of the set. I'm not really sure where the front light came from on this particular shot.

I entertained myself by doing all my shooting with my 50mm f1.7, since I'm not fond of my camera over ISO 800. Sometimes I make fun of this lens for making my camera look snub-nosed, but it did its job quite well on Saturday.
