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.
Ahoy-hoy, lovely readers!
I've added photos to the Events page from a sold-out show I shot for Impose Magazine earlier in September. Killer lineup that night at Union Pool--BOYTOY, The Mystery Lights, and headliner Shannon and The Clams.
It was one of the first times I had to photograph a performance while simultaneously pushing back the mosh pit. You know you're getting older when your first thought is, "GAH, PROTECT THE DELICATE PHOTOGRAPHY INVESTMENT IN MY HANDS!" instead of "HELL YEAH PUNK ROCK!"

More photos from the recent Raveonettes/Coves show at Music Hall of Williamsburg are coming soon!
