On the last Saturday of November 2014, Sleaford Mods made their US debut at The Wick in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They, along with the opening acts--The Rogers Sisters and The Gotobeds--sounded on point and filled the relatively large Brooklyn space with energy and intensity. I really enjoyed shooting this show (despite the pretty dim lighting) and hope to catch these bands again soon.
Also newly added to "Events & Shows" are photos I took on my iPhone of artist Dread Scott's performance "On the Impossibility of Freedom in a Country Founded on Slavery and Genocide". It was, to say the least, a powerful and moving commentary on race, culture, history, and community without a single word being spoken. I urge you to click the above links to learn about Dread Scott and this piece. I've also uploaded a slow-motion video of a portion of the performance below.
Soon I'll be off on a little trip outside of NYC, and I will hopefully bring you some fresh photos from the lands beyond Brooklyn in the next couple of weeks.
I've just uploaded new photos to the Events page of bands Greys, The Dirty Nil, and Hector's Pets--all fantastic acts with a great sound. Even if you don't like looking at photos of guys in bands, check out the photos to see the Candy Crush-esque wall at Baby's All Right. I thought I was going to have a seizure at some point.
And my blogging confession? I'M TERRIBLE AT BLOGGING. Sorry about the delays between posts, I never know what to tell you. That's probably why I just take pictures instead.
Stay tuned for more images, my patient friends!
