The Lafontaines // Barrowland Ballroom, Glasgow

On Saturday, 7th November 2015 the Barrowland Ballroom had it's roof blown off. Simple. Luckily for me I was there to witness it with my trusted camera and an old photography bud Gavin Craigie

So who blew the roof off I hear you ask? The Lafontaines. If you've never heard of them then I recommend loading up Spotify, iTunes or even Limewire and picking up a copy of their debut album CLASS. It simply is Class! Every year the Fonts boys organise a bigger and better hometown headline show in Glasgow... with the Barrowlands show being their biggest headline show to date! I have been lucky enough to build up a friendship with the band and crew over time and as soon as I heard about this show, I knew I had to shoot it! The lads were supported by another fine Scottish act (also the first band I ever shot) Model Aeroplanes and London based rockers Eliza and The Bear.

Instead of me describing how they smashed it out the park and showed the Barrowlands how to host a show, have a look at the photographs below.... 

Also, keep your eyes peeled for my first ever video from the show!
