A few days before the show, I checked out Penguin Prison‘s site to try and get a feel for what to expect. Hearing the 80’s inspired electronics and knowing they were opening for Girl Talk, I just envisioned Penguin Prison being just another DJ set. Turns out it was quite the opposite, with Chris Glover enlisting a full set of musicians to help translate his digital pieces back into live organic works.
The set was a lush and soothing affair, getting the crowd relaxed and loosened up for the party to come later on that evening. Shooting the band was fairly similar, with Glover and his band expressive and upfront for easy shots.
