Twin Shadow and LOLAWOLF at Music Hall of Williamsburg 3/31/15

I do love the Twin Shadow (but I hate fog). I’ve been shooting LOLAWOLF for a while now – so good to see them get better and better.

2014 Year End Review

2014 was a year of extreme highs and extreme lows. In May, my daughter graduated from Pharmacy school with the title of Doctor and I had to put my dear kitty Saqqara to sleep. In April, my friend Jiwon, went missing and was found after a month having ended her life (the 30 days of not knowing took a tremendous toll). In March, I attended SXSW for the first time which was amazing. I’ve shot bunches of shows and seen many small venues close. Crazy year. These photos are not a “Best Of” they are shows that I enjoyed something about.

5 Years of Fort Useless

There were a lot of DIY venue closures this year and most have been heavily covered by the local NYC music press but my home base DIY venue was Fort Useless. Not only did I shoot there, I had photo exhibits and curated many of the art shows. It is sorely missed by my little community of musicians and artists. Fort Useless continues to be a non-profit arts organization and endeavors to find new space. Thanks for all your hard work, Jeremiah.

I hope that there is a photo of everyone that frequented the Fort — my apologies if I missed anyone.
