(You can find Part 1 here.) One of the best parts of the Whiteaker Block Party had to be all of the music, all day long, absolutely for free. Since I’m an architecture student, they don’t let me out much, so I don’t see (or photograph) a lot of shows anymore. This was one opportunity [...]
El Guitarrista. Image by Landahlauts. Last night Dan and I were treated to a live Sonic Youth concert on La 2. I doubt I will ever get to see them live, so it was pretty cool. I miss being able to go to shows and take photos…. Damn you economy! Anyhow, I realized that while [...]
Hello again! It has been quite a while since I last was able to post, but this time I am writing directly from the comfort of my apartment. We were finally able to get internet at home a few weeks ago. We had some trouble getting the Telefonica guy to show up – he kept [...]
Back in November (Was it that long ago?) I wrote about the Take Away Shows and how everyone needs to check them out. I stand by that statement. Here’s yet another reason why: Sigur Ros performing in a Parisian Cafe. Sigur Ros – Við spilum endalaust – A Take Away Show from La Blogotheque on [...]
Jukebox the Ghost was one of several bands asked to contribute a song to the compilation Guilt by Association, Vol. 2. Aptly named, the compilation is all covers of pop songs, most of them from the 1980′s. To celebrate its release, Jukebox performed along with Lowry, Robbers on High Street, and Takka Takka for an [...]
Happy New Year! I know I’ve not been the most up-to-date with this website. That happens during the holidays. Have no fear, though… I’m working on some photos to post right now and have a few other things brewing. Keep an eye out. In the meantime, here’s something awesome you may want to check out. [...]
It’s that time of year again! Everyone is coming out with their Top Ten lists – why should I be any different? Actually, I can think of a few reasons. For one thing, there are a lot of Top Ten lists out there, with more no doubt coming in the next few weeks. One more [...]
It’s recently come to my attention that there are people who still don’t know about these yet, so I’m going to take a break from the regular schedule of photography and use this as a sort of PSA for the Take Away Shows. There’s this guy in France, see, who goes by the name of [...]
This song feels somehow appropriate right now…
If you live in the NYC Metro Region, please go sign this petition. JellyNYC is trying to get a new event space in a proposed park on the Brooklyn waterfront. They need one now that McCarren Park Pool is being turned into an actual pool.
At the end of the day, as the sun was setting, Fetival-goers were left with the choice of two big bands: Broken Social Scene, or my choice, Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks. When I told my friends that was who I wanted to go see, most of them looked at me like I was crazy. [...]
On July 19, most of the music-loving population of the New York City Metropolitan area descended on Coney Island for some fun in the sun: Siren Festival 2008. Each year for the past eight years, the Village Voice newspaper has thrown this all-day party in Coney Island. For free. Yes, just one of many reasons [...]
Currently digging some old school Patrick Wolf.
Just finished a new mix. I’m going to call it Does This Make Me a Hipster? because really that’s the only question on my mind these days. (JOKING! Or am I?) Honestly, though, it may be the most hipster-y mix I’ve made, and I’m not sure what I think of that. But all the songs [...]
