Gallery: Archers of Loaf, Pipe, Hundred Visions at Bowery Ballroom

4/27/12. Fun night at Bowery. A bunch of my friends showed up shortly after doors — it’s always better to spend the evening with people to talk to between sets. Archers of Loaf were amazing and Pipe was the most fun I’ve had shooting in quite some time (the bruise for catching the mike stand hurts to the touch, but, whatever :))

Gallery: Sideshow Goshko 4/25/12

Once more at KGB Bar….

ERIN BARKER (Moth GrandSlam Champion, The Story Collider) – Erin told us a tale about dating the most popular boy in high school — and how awful it was…

RORY SCHOLL (BTK Band, Chicago City Limits, The Moth) – Rory was once the worst roommate ever (it just happened..really).

LESLIE GOSHKO (Sirius XM, WNYC, Manhattan Monologue Slam Champ) – I cannot believe that I don’t recall Leslie’s story…again. I am a bad friend. So, Leslie, reminded me what her story was. At one time she was a teacher and had her students write plays. Of her 2 favorites, one, whose play was awful did not get to perform his play because the other had some exchanges with other students that made the authorities a bit nervous. Ah, the trial and tribulations of youth.

JEFF SIMMERMON (This American Life, The Moth) – Jeff fell in love with the VERY wrong girl and lived to tell the tale.

w/music by DR. MICHELLE-LEONA GODIN (actress Star of Happiness)

Gallery: Instagram Photos

A few weeks ago, I traded in my BlackBery for an iPhone and have fallen in love with it. One of my favorite Apps is Instagram (no surprise there). Here are some of those shots.

Gallery: The Cribs, The Hounds Below, Skaters at Music Hall of WIliamsburg

The Cribs

Gallery: Youth Lagoon, Porcelain Raft, Cemeteries

Wednesday night (3/28/12) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. I really love Youth Lagoon – for several months it was all that I listened to. This was a pleasure to shoot as there is light at MHOW. I enjoyed the Mercury Lounge show more, as it is a more intimate venue, but that was a tough shoot.

Youth Lagoon

Porcelain Raft gets better every time I see him (now them…)

Cemeteries – really enjoyed this band –nee to check them out again.
