Infected Mushroom brings the lasers

Infected Mushroom

Israeli (well, sort of; they currently live in LA) psychedelic trance group Infected Mushroom took the stage just after midnight last night at Epic Nightclub in downtown Minneapolis. They played for over an hour and a half to an ecstatic crowd, putting on a visually impressive show full of lasers and other eye candy.

Check out some highlights below, or see the full set at Flickr. Also be sure to like me on Facebook and/or follow me on Twitter for more.

Epic has no photo pit, and is more of a dance club than a rock club despite regularly getting live music acts, not just DJs. I managed to squeeze my way up front for Infected Mushroom, only to get more sweat, beer, and unidentifiable other liquids on myself and my camera than at any other show I’ve ever shot except perhaps Amon Amarth at Jaxx a few years ago. After a few songs I retreated to shoot from afar – both from the floor (as in the headline shot, above) and from the second-floor VIP booths (which can be seen in the last photo below), which had excellent sight lines.

This being a dance club, I felt obligated to do some party-photography style shots of the attendees, all of whom were happy to oblige – and in many cases saw my camera and pretty much demanded that I take a photo. No problem… that’s what I do.
