Whether its the intimacy of the venue or the vivid stage lighting, indie concerts have always had their draw and on the 22nd of December, I had the chance to visit the Drake Hotel to watch the band By Divine Right along with The Luyas and others. \
The biggest surprise of the night I think were the Luyas. They has brought their own stage lighting to add to the set. While it made things a little more challenging from a photographer’s perspective, it certainly added to the atmosphere. Stage presence is something that many indie bands tend to hit or miss and with the Luya’s they nailed it with a very fairy like performance by the lead singer and even had the crowd in complete darkness at one point.
