Serial Slate contributor and professional music photographer Rich Etteridge caught Bristol rock group Coasts as they hit Cambridge on the first date of their headline tour.

Coasts live at Junction, Cambridge 15/10/15

The last time the group were in town they were playing a much smaller venue, so their appearance at Cambridge Junction is something of a level-up. Their set was met by a deliriously enthusiastic crowd and shone from start to finish. They ended on a high note, with our writer in attendance Dani Bursill describing the experience as:

“Four minutes of rapidly-changing, glistening lights, bellowed lyrics, and an unreal energy combined to produce one of the best finales the Junction has seen. Coasts, still seeming as shocked as they appeared to be as they walked on, labelled their Cantabrigian fans as ‘amazing’.”

What lovely chaps. Rich Etteridge is an active photographer, tackling many high-profile bands as they come through town with his deft and fatal skills. His work has also appeared in places as diverse as The Guardian, The Wire, The Line of Best Fit, Yahoo, Faze Mag and various Departments of the University of Cambridge (to name a fraction).
