We spend a lot of time wandering around and looking at things: Before shows, after shows, on the way to shows, at rehearsals...etc. Come to think of it, being in a band is really all about waiting and searching for ways to kill time. We decided that we would do this with a camera in hand and let you see the things that catch our eye.
One of the most head-turning orchestral pop bands from Canada, Cai.ro has been on a steady rise in the indie music scene since 2011. Their band was described as a “must-see” in Toronto’s 2011 Indie Week. Lomography Canada got the chance to meet Dante Berardi, the guitarist and the vocalist of the band, and he shared his desire to document his concerts with the La Sardina camera during their performances at the North by North East with us!
We were lucky enough to go from not being accepted to NXNE 2011 to being booked for 4 shows in NXNE 2012. We were more than ecstatic to be involved in the festival because we spent the last year working towards getting into it. We spent 5 days playing, wandering, learning, networking and generally having a blast. Here are some photos to show you our take on how things went down.
Just because we lomographers are carefree snapshooters doesn't mean we don't need some essential tools and supplies when we're out in the field. Let me share with you some of the basic stuff you can easily find and put together to create a Survival Kit!
