2L8 live at Serres (behind the scenes)

Last Friday I joined the band of 2L8 at their concert at the city of Serres. Being a friend with most band members, I gladly accepted their invitation to record a video of their performance. Of course I wouldn't miss the chance to take some photos from one of the most exciting bands I know, both in terms of sound and visual performance.

The performance took place at the Public Central Library of Serres.

During sound check, still as their normal, everyday selves.

2L8 are an 8-piece band. Vocals, guitar, upright bass, cello, violin, theremin, drums, percussion.

Thereminist May Roosevelt.

The set is finally ready

so now it's time for the transformation backstage.

and anti-stress exercise.

Introducing the band to the audience,

time to get on stage!

The youtube below is a short video I made using photos and video shots of their mesmerizing performance. I used an excerpt of their song "Empty Streets pt. II".
