The last day of CMJ was a blast for me (even though it rained most of the evening).

I began the afternoon at Gothamist House (at The Bell House in Brooklyn). Then off to Cake Shop, Pianos and finally – The Delancey.

Gallery: CMJ – The Rosebuds, The Ladybug Transistor, Crystal Stilts and Wye Oak

Friday night at The Bell House (in Gowanus) was lots of fun. The crowd went nuts for The Rosebuds. As for me, I loved Wye Oak!

It was an interesting evening. The bands were great and still full of energy as this was the end of their tour.
Unfortunately, I witnessed a very ugly exchange between some concertgoers last night. Some were drunk some were not. In between sets there was a shift in audience (as usual) and some pushing occurred – which is pretty normal – but – then – a very drunk guy used some racial slurs against a non-drunk girl and it was pretty ugly. A word of advice to all who get close to the stage, it’s often crowded and people are on top of you – if you come up – expect it and deal with it in a polite way, even if others are not. It will make the evening better for everyone.

Gallery: Goes Cube at The Bellhouse 10/4/08

I had not seen Goes Cube before – they rocked! I also saw, Jared (now I’ll remember your name). Jared was in Man In Gray along with my friend Bryan Bruchman. I took a few photos of him in the audience but they all came out blurry 😦

Low at The Bell House 9/23/08

The audience at The Bell House for Low was impressive. They chatted away pre-show but once Low hit the stage, they were attentive and….quiet. They listened. Kudos for Low!

u9.18.08 067

I LOVE The Bell House! Located in Gowanus on 7th Street between 2nd an 3rd Aves it is THE closest music venue to where I live. I think it will be my new spot. It will be AMAZING to get home in half an hour. Also, the room and sound system are pretty great – and the stage is accessible from 3 sides – plenty of room to shoot). I had a BLAST there on opening night: my friend Bryan Bruchman was in from Portland and I met another fellow photog, Chris LaPutt, whom I’ve only known virtually. Also in attendance were my buds Ces and Jeff.

And now…on to the photos:
