Wonderful afternoon at AUT's new Manukau Campus on Great South Road.  The gent in the first image is Anonymouz (aka Matthew Faiumu Salapu) one of the main attractions at the event.  I had a ball!  Light levels were quite low on the stage, and my lens isn't that wide :-(  ISO was boosted up toward ISO1600 at times, but the noise introduced in the in the images adds to the atmosphere of the live event.
I wasn't the only one having fun.  I think everyone who was there had a great time.  Second and thrid shots in this post show a couple more of the musicians on the stage thoroughly enjoying themselves.
The drummer was the hugely talented Dylan Elise (check out this video).  I saw Dylan earlier this year at Manukau Institute of Technology and he's truely amazing.  Follow the links above to see his drum solos and if you ever get the chance to see him you really really should go.

So, besides all the talent on the stage there was plenty off the stage enjoying the music.  I'll finish off this post with a few other images you might like.  Let me know what you think.
