Modest Mouse at McCarren Pool Park 9/8/07

Last night, I arrived at McCarren Pool Park around 8:00 pm. There were quite a lot of people in front, on various lines. Then one of the event workers shouted, “Anyone with a ticket can go right up to the front”. I was inside in minutes. I made my way around the side of the large crowd and was right up front (about 4 rows in). Fifteen minutes later, Modest Mouse hit the stage. It was a really terrific show! I shot these photos with my cell phone. They are not good photos, but to me they look a bit like paintings, which I think are interesting.

This ladies and gentlemen, is Johnny Marr. I’ve only seem him play once before, many years ago (like 20 of them). He (and the other 2 ex-Smiths) played as a back up band for Sinead O’Connor during her first US tour.

The Party Faithful and Hector on Stilts

Last night, my good friend, Patrick, used a clever bit of emotional manipulation to get me to head out to Williamsburg to see The Party Faithful. Why did I need convincing? Because – I’m cheap and lazy. I owe him a debt of gratitude. It’s probably the best performance of his I’ve ever seen.

Then, I headed over to Fontana’s to see Hector On Stilts. They are from Albany, and they are a lot of fun. Check them out!

FEAST!!

_MG_0018
I’ve been attending the Santa Rosalia Feast, commonly referred to as the 18th Avenue Feast for at least half of my life. Years ago, I went with friends and then later, with Kristin, when she was a little girl. More recently, simply, to get a bag of zeppoles to bring home to my family. It occurred to me that as that neighborhood changes, this event may come to an end. So, I decided to document it. As I walked through – I saw a very diverse crowd (as you can see). It made me think that this may indeed continue for some time to come.

I’ve know Langhorne for about 2 years. Last night was the first time that I photographed him. He has a way of getting the crowd going….
