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.
Down the East River to Battery Park. People were out and about, some were even fishing. All of the Duane Reade stores we passed were open. Lots of buildings put sandbags out. Train stations boarded up. It’s actually kind of nice to see the streets so empty in Downtown Manhattan on a Monday afternoon. NYC birds and squirrels don’t seem phased yet.
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.
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.
I finally got to see Florence + The Machine perform during the Creators Project event in Brooklyn on Saturday. It was worth the wait, she has one of those voices that seems larger than her. I’m sure the fact that we were under the arch of the Manhattan Bridge added to the great sound. I heard it wasn’t so great in the back, but up near the front it was perfect. I didn’t have a photo pass but I brought my camera anyway and got some pretty decent pictures from about 50 feet away, thank you 70-300mm lens. They’re all from the same angle, couldn’t move around cause it was packed and I was stuck against a wall behind some tall people.
This show was fantastic and in a beautiful setting. The Creators Project really outdid themselves this year. Can’t wait to see what they have in store next year.
I went to day one of the Creators Project event in DUMBO yesterday. It was definitely one of the best events I’ve been too all year. Below are some pictures I took while walking around and visiting the different galleries and so on. I also go to see a beautiful performance by Florence & The Machine under the Manhattan Bridge Archway, I will post those pictures later.
