Chet Faker at Terminal 5 Photos (Night 1)

On Saturday night, I had the opportunity to catch Australian electronic artist Chet Faker perform on the first night of his three sold-out shows at Terminal 5 in NYC. The show was in support of his recent full-length album Built on Glass with tracks from his earlier EP Thinking in Textures. A couple of my images ran alongside Silas Valentino’s review over on the Village Voice site.

Valentino wrote about the rise of Faker and an obstacle he will face in reaching greater success, “Easily one of the most well-received moments of the evening, what “No Diggity” proves is that Faker is highly capable of mounting scores of success — but it requires his own credit. And even though tracks like “1998” and “Cigarettes and Loneliness” have what it takes, that indescribable x-factor remains the only prevention blocking his path.” A link to the whole review was just above this and his tour dates are below my photos (including his final show at Terminal 5 tonight).

The Lone Bellow on WNYC’s Soundcheck


Earlier this week, during my lunch break, I went down to The Greene Space for WNYC’s Soundcheck show featuring New York-via the South-band The Lone Bellow conversing with host John Schaefer and performing songs from their new album Then Came the Morning. The album from Zach Williams, Brian Elmquist and Kanene Doheney Pipkin is a collaboration with Aaron Dessner of The National and was produced by Peter Katis. It was released in January on Descendent Records and has a solid 77 at Metacritic. The trio will be performing at some festivals this summer including a couple of my favorites, the Clearwater Festival in New York and the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island. I hope to catch one of their full sets soon as the WNYC set was just a few songs long. Video of that performance and a few more of my photos are after the jump.

Modest Mouse at Webster Hall (Photos)

Last night, Modest Mouse‘s tour stop at New York’s Webster Hall was the first of two sold-out shows there in support of their newest album, Strangers to Ourselves, the long-desired follow-up to 2007’s We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank. I photographed the band for the Village Voice and my images went alongside Sean McCabe’s excellent review of the excellent performance. You can read the whole thing here.


However, when you read the article, you’ll only see a couple of images that I sent over, but I had a ton more worth sharing, so please take a look below for a colorful gallery of Isaac Brock and co.

Red Baraat’s 2015 Festival of Colors (Preview)

I’ve photographed Red Baraat several times in the past, including their past two Holi / Festival of Colors shows. The one in 2013 was at Webster Hall and those pictures are on PopMatters while the most recent New York City one was was held at the Highline Ballroom. The band liked my photos enough from the prior year that I shot that gig for Red Baraat which they then shared the pictures on their Facebook page. Their 2015 flyer features an image of mine from the Webster Hall gig. Tonight they will be performing at Brooklyn Bowl with Rupa & the April Fishes and the Brooklyn Raga Massive. I will be going tonight and once again taking pictures.


Of course, when photographing a full set from a band, you end up getting more shots than you end up using, so I thought why not revisit the past two years and see if I have any photo outtakes that were worth sharing. Check out a few from each show after the jump.

The Flaming Lips Cover Bowie’s “Warszawa”

At the 25th Annual Tibet House Benefit this year, The Flaming Lips were joined by Julianna Barwick for two songs. The first was a cover of The Beatles’ “She’s Leaving Home” and the second was of David Bowie’s “Warszawa”. Audio of the latter song has surfaced and is below while a full gallery is posted over at BrooklynVegan.


A few more photos below – the full gallery link is above.
