Oberhofer, LODRO, Bueno at McCarren Park

7/17/13. This was a really fun evening. Ran into Tear-n on North 7th and was able to hang with her a bit. She also kept watch on my camera bag so I could wander around unencumbered. It was the first time that I heard LODRO although I’ve seen the main 2 performers in their previous band, Royal Baths. They were really amazing — liked them a lot. Oberhofer was incredible as movie goers stood up and crowded around them. It was the first time I was happy with the photos of Oberhofer I walked away with.

January-June – 20 Photos

I can’t believe that half the year is over. It’s been a good 6 months for me – I’ve had some really positive changes in my like and am hoping that the next 6 months will be smooth sailing…

Here’s some photos to sum up some of my favorite shows. They are in no particular order.kidrockers-3947
Diiv – Kidrockers – Brooklyn Bowl. This was one of my favorite Kidrockers moments. When Zachary turned around on stage and played for the kids, I knew that Brooklyn Bowl would be the perfect new home for the series.
