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.
I managed to get into the Vice.com launch party two weeks ago. It was mostly a media event with only a handful of actual fans getting in. I think it would have been a lot livelier if there had been more music fans there, too many people were just standing around looking like they were too jaded to be excited about getting into this spectacular event, but it was cool nonetheless. I stuck around to watch Tanlines and Death From Above 1979 perform.
