Jingle Ball 2008 for The New York Times

Katy Perry is just so much fun, love her. Jingle Ball is always a fun show to shoot. One of my favorite moments that didn't get into the review was this shot of Bruce Springsteen backstage, taking a picture of Brody Jenner posing with one of Bruce's daughter's and her friends. It's the superstar as regular dad/fan.

Full review here.

Nachtmystium for The New York Times 12/10/2008

This show was supposed to start at 12pm. Late enough for a Sunday night show I would say....out in Williamsburg...on a freezing night.
Instead it started at 2am. Thing is the band was so good that I ended up really enjoying the show and staying till the end. I got hom at about 3:30.

Homeslice Underground Dining Cover of Pulse for The New York Post

This shot is on the cover of Pulse today for their story on Underground dining in the city and around the country. Becky and Hayden of Homeslice West where great and we got some really nice images, besides which they fed my an awesome meal!

Village Voice Siren Festival 2007

The Black Lips did some questionable things with a chicken and the feathers of what may have been the birds relatives. I didn't see any earplugs on the bird and only hope that his hearing wasn't irreparably damaged. The link above is Rolling Stone's Gallery from the event.
It's always alot of fun going out to Coney Island for Siren. What they are planning on doing to the boardwalk makes me want to hurl all the hot dogs I ate while I was there this time. Can't we just landmark the whole area? Does the part that has personality have to be where everything is torn down to make way for generic condo's? God forbid they develop what's already blighted in Coney Island instead or ripping out it's beating heart.

Guitar Hero at Pianos for The New York Times

I've been playing guitar hero for a while myself. I had no desire to own a playstation (although I have been known to get addicted to certain arcade games) until guitar hero came out. Christine got me the ps2 with two guitars and the game for my birthday. What a perfect gift! When I got this assignment I knew I was going to tear it up!

Panda Bear - Noah Lennox of Animal Collective at Bowery Ballroom for The New York Times

This was a very interesting show. I left it feeling like I had been listening to the Beach Boys re-interpreted for the age of the internet and pro-tools. Despite Noah being alone onstage with just a bunch of knobs to twiddle and his voice it was fairly mesmerizing show.
