Death Cab For Cutie

Death Cab For Cutie, performing at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney. 18.08.08.

I’m a huge fan of DCFC, so getting the chance to shoot them on my birthday was pretty special – thank you, BRAG.

Despite the focus on the new album Narrow Stairs, the set was a fairly well-rounded snapshot of their back catalogue. I’m definitely more a fan of their earlier work on Transatlanticism and The Photo Album than the new stuff, so to have those records covered in the first three songs was great, but also kinda frustrating because I was torn between making the most of the very short time allowed for shooting, and sitting back to enjoy the tunes.



  1. The Silhouette and Spitting shots are definitely winners. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I shot DCYC last night too at Metropolis Fremantle. I’ll be posting the photos tonight. I hope I’m not the only one who was wondering who Ben was… he’s got a completely different (and non-geeky!) look now!

    Great photos Will!! I’m seeing them tomorrow night up here in Brisvegas, been looking forward to it for ages. I agree with you that their earlier stuff is better, so hoping they stick to a similar set list you saw.

    great shots will. and i forgot to say happy bday on the night, so…

    i was actually kinda bored at the show, which is a shame cos the songs are amazing. just felt like the “show” was just another “show”.

    maybe i was just on a major bazan comedown or something…
