At a local wine bar, "Liquid Assets", the band Band du Pays plays regularly. I wasn't expecting them this night, but fortunately had my X100 with me and snuggled up close to grab a few shots.
This is almost straight from the camera, except that this venue isn't really lit for shows so the walls are far brighter than where the singer is standing, which of course is normally where you'd sit with your sweetie sipping a glass of expensive Bordeaux. That mans if you expose for the band, the walls get too bright. It's shot on a Fuji X100, with my custom B&W mode, and all I did was pull curves down a touch (to the JPG) to deepen the blacks, and add a slight vignette which I then brushed away from the singer and the guitarist's face.
