I suppose that, for many people, music is a great love and concerts are the mistresses. That is definitely the case for me.
At the end of last October, I visited The Crow Club in Athens to enjoy one of my favourite bands: Beggars.
Beggars is currently one of the most dynamic rock bands in Greece and their live shows are the definition of rock’n’roll.
There is always the dilemma in concerts to enjoy the live or take the photographs, but i guess that is the dilemma in every good show. In this live show i decided to take some pictures of the boys for their first 5 songs and then I gathered my camera, grabbed a beer and enjoyed pure, desperate rock’n’roll.

Beggars is a rock trio from Athens – Greece. The band was formed in 2009 by founding members Yannis Passas (vox-guitars) and Chili (bass).
By the end of 2010 Angelos Tanis (drums) came into the equation to complete the band’s line up.
