Kidrockers at Living Room on Ludlow Street

In December of 2007 we brought the Kidrockers series to the Living Room on Ludlow Street and it remained our NYC home through 2011. The news that they closing that location (and hopefully fingind a new one) made me want to take a walk down memory lane with some special moments I had there.

Gallery: Bear In Heaven, Small Black, ERAAS

at Music Hall of Williamsburg 12/5/12. Bear in Heven brought their dry ice and strobes once again but MHOW has more angles for me to shoot from and so it was an easier night for me. Small Black were lots of fun and ERAAS was quite good.

Gallery: Rock Lottery

Spent last Saturday shooting Brooklyn’s Rock Lottery. This was seriously fun. The premmis: You get 25 musicians together and draw names from a hat creating 5 bands (drummers pick the names). Then they go off to write 3 songs which they perfome that evcening. I spent the day travelling to various studios where the bands were writing/practicing and then shot the show at Knitting Factory that evening. To see complete gallery on Prefiux click here.
