Review: My New Broken Record Vinyl Collection Cuff Bracelet

Review: My New Broken Record Vinyl Collection Cuff Bracelet

Back in May I was in Vegas for the ump-teenth time and made my way into the store at the Hard Rock Hotel.  There in the back I saw they had this very unique product they were selling.  It was a cuff-style bracelet in leather with carefully cut pieces of a vinyl LP stitched to […]

Photos: White Lies at Terminal 5, NYC on 5.19.2011

Terminal 5, NYC, 5.19.2011 – British indie pop band White Lies touring in support of their second release, Ritual, made a headlining stop at New York’s Terminal 5 with School of Seven Bells in support.  A band that has broke out, or just about to depending on who you talk to, these UK rockers have […]


Photos: School of Seven Bells opening for White Lies at Terminal 5 on 5.19.2011

Terminal 5, NYC, 5/19/2011 – 3 weeks and about 80 miles apart I shot School of Seven Bells for the second time as an opener. A few weeks ago I covered them as they opened for Interpol at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park and just 3 weeks later, the music remained the same but […]


Photos: Deftones, being supported by Dillinger Escape Plan and Funeral Party, at Starland Ballroom – 5/11/2011

Starland Ballroom, May 11, 2011 – You always hear photographers complain about lighting, and I am one of them.  Photography is simply capturing light, so bad light means tough photography, and this night was one of those nights.  It’s the missed photos that eat away at us the most.  This night had long periods of […]


Photos: Rise Against with Bad Religion at Terminal 5

Terminal 5, NYC, May 5, 2011 – There was a time when Bad Religion was bringing out an up-and-coming punk bad called Rise Against to support them on tour.  Years later, it’s Rise Against in the role as headliner who end up bringing out their heroes to support them, Bad Religion.  The mutual admiration by […]


The Kills at Terminal 5 on April 29

Terminal 5, NYC, April 28, 2011 – The duo of Allsion Mosshart and Jamie Hince may give a first impression as being a bit unassuming; that’s until they take the stage. Backed by a drum machine and a stage presence you are only born with, you just can’t help feel a bit dirty at the […]


Photos: Snoop Dogg performing at The Wellmont Theatre on April 28

Wellmont Theatre, Montclair, NJ, April 28, 2011 – Had the chance to cover hip hop and, at this point, American pop culture icon Snoop Dogg this past Thursday at The Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ.  Snoop was on his own schedule waiting until the end of the Lakers game to come out of his green […]


My Chemical Romance at Terminal 5, NYC

My neighbors 5 minutes to the south could have swung by and saved me the toll money; instead I hopped in my trusty Honda and weathered the 10 mile trip to Terminal 5 to shoot My Chemical Romance.  Being accused of softening up a bit with their most recent album, I was interested to see […]


Neon Trees opening for My Chemical Romance at Terminal 5, NYC

  I will say I knew not much about the Neon Trees besides their current radio hit.  This is one reason I love being a music photographer; bands like this surprise me.  One of the great stage shows of the year, Tyler Glenn is the epitome of a rock front man. Plagued with heavy back-lighting […]


The Architects opening for My Chemical Romance at Terminal 5, NYC

For what little I knew about Neon Trees, I knew much less about The Architects.  How good could the opener to the opener really be?  I sometimes skip the first band in a 3 band line-up but was glad I decided to get there in time for their set.  Another great live band and I […]


Chris Cornell at The Wellmont Theatre

Same as a few nights ago, except this time in front of a sold out crowd at my favorite NJ venue, The Wellmont Theatre.  The only change this night was the lighting as it was much improved over the set at Town Hall.
