Sky Ferreira played the Glasslands. In my friend Stephanie’s words, “She’s reached the level of popularity and respect where people shush other people for talking while she’s playing.”
You know you’re the woman when people in NYC line up to cram into a venue and stand in dead silence just to watch you play your guitars.
None of these pictures are cropped or color edited, just re-sized cause it’s a lazy Sunday people. So I apologize if you don’t have a Mac and the pictures don’t automatically look gorgeous on your computer. All three bands were fantastic, and Brooklyn Bowl, I just have to say, beautiful stage lighting. Best and easiest show I’ve shot in a while. That’s it, that’s as much as I can say right now. I had home fries with my breakfast and I just want to take a nap. If you’re a fan or went to the show, feel free to comment about it below.
Finally got to shoot The Kills, and it was everything I ever thought it would be. Continue reading
The Rapture were great, as usual. Everything was on point and although it may not seem like it from the crowd shots, everyone was having a good time and there was a lot of dancing. Or about as much as you could ever expect from a NYC audience.
I went to both of Fiona’s NYC shows. The Music Hall of Williamsburg show and the Bowery Ballroom show two nights later. I have a lingering obsession with her from my adolescence. I don’t listen to her every day, but when I found out she was finally playing some small venues here, all reason left me and I went ahead and bought some ridiculously over priced tickets on ebay and StubHub, the ticketmaster sale sold out in an impossible matter of nano seconds.
I will only be posting pictures from the first night. The second night I ended up in an awful spot behind some people who I am sure were around 7 feet tall and I couldn’t see, much less take pictures.
She was perfect. The new songs were as good or better than I expected. Can’t wait to buy the album.
What a way to end 2011 and begin 2012. I never go out on new years eve. Ever. I hate the crowds and the drunkards. So I have always stayed home and been home before midnight. This year, not only did I go out, but I went to New Jersey. We didn’t even book a hotel because it was so over priced. We just bought our roundtrip bus tickets and headed out.
The show started at about 10:15pm, no opening band (yay!), they had a brief intermission ‘to go practice Your Favorite Weapon (their words) at around 10:45. Came back on around 11:15 and played until 12:45 am.
They played about six songs. It was great and fun, but I’m glad I didn’t travel from another state for it like some people did, for such a short set.
