Savages join opposition to gig phone filming

London band Savages have joined Yeah Yeah Yeahs in requesting that fans don’t use their mobile phones to film their gigs.

As previously reported, Yeah Yeah Yeahs posted up a sign at New York venue Webster Hall earlier this month requesting that audience members “put that shit away”.

Displaying a similar, though more polite, sign at their performance at Neumos in Seattle, Savages wrote: “Our goal is to discover better ways of living and experiencing music. We believe that the use of phones to film and take pictures during a gig prevents all of us from totally immersing ourselves. Let’s make this evening special. Silence your phones”.
