Anvil @ CMW Indie Awards

Posted on Sunday, April 5th, 2009 under Awards, Concert, Music, Photography


Canadian metal underdogs Anvil were on hand at the CMW Indie Awards a few weeks back for a special performance of “Metal on Metal” and to accept induction into the Canadian Indies Hall of Fame.

The band has recently gained new found attention with the release of a documentary called Anvil! The Story of Anvil, which chronicles their 30+ year career of relative obscurity and the last ditch effort for revival. The doc has been receiving accolades worldwide and will be in limited release on April 10th. While I’ve had a few opportunities to view this, I’ve managed to miss it each time. Really looking forward to seeing the doc soon. If you are interested, here is the trailer.

From a photography point of view, Anvil are a ton of fun to shoot, particularly Steve “Lips” Kudlow. He makes a lot of eye contact and is incredibly expressive. Unfortunately, because we were forced to stay in one spot, I didn’t get any drum shots of Robb Reiner. Hopefully there will be another opportunity in the near future.

More photos after the jump.
