The Jury & The Saints

I went along to the opening of a new venue in Auckland called 'Backstage'.
I actually went with Phil Bell VIP pass which was pretty cool. Hope they weren't disappointed it wasn't him.
Bit of a promotion for me though as he's the Editor of RipitUp Magazine haha
It was an industry gig as The Jury & The Saints describe it in a comment under one of my images they posted on their Facebook.
For me that mean't free beer and food in between shots which was a nice change. Shame they didn't have more fans of the bands there though. As it would have been great to have captured them as well.
Here is what I photographed of band The Jury & The Saints. I actually really like the first photograph the most. It would make a nice back cover image for a CD cover.

Below is two of my favourite songs from the band.


  1. New venue? There's been a venue called The Basement in Auckland on Lower Greys Ave for a few years: Is there another one now or was it a reopening in the same place?

  2. Yes you're quite correct as the venue is actually called 'Backstage'.
    Sorry about that as I've made a mistake. I will update it now. Link to this venue info is or just type 'Backstage' on Facebook and it comes up with the fan page.
