I shot this collection of photos last night at the Mika concert in Seattle at the Showbox SODO. What an awesome show, and a great way to spend Valentine's Day with my sweetheart Doug. We managed to stake out a prime spot in the center, just 3 or 4 rows back from the front of the stage. The space is pretty intimate, with low ceilings and exposed wooden beams, and it leant itself to a fantastic (and sold-out) show.
At one or two points Mika (who we had a Q&A with in 2007) mentioned he was under the weather and not feeling 100%, but if he hadn't said a word no one would have been the wiser. The band was fantastic, and as the show went from subdued spectacle to all-out party the crowd screamed and sang along at the top of their lungs.
